“Lacking services.”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Went in Sept 2012. This town was pretty much shut down. A little later and the fall folage most likely would have changed my mind.

“The place to go to get your moose fix!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We have been coming to Moosehead lake for the past three years now. The wife was dieing to see a moose, did a search on google, learned about Moosehead Lake, and we've been coming here ever since! Just an example, this spring we saw a total of 28 moose!
As well as looking for moose, the lake is beautiful! Every view of it holds something different scenery wise.
This spring I also was able to get some fishing in, and I must say, I have never seen fishing like this area has to offer! I caught quite a few younger salmon and lake trout, and for the size that they were, were some of the best fights I've had on the line! A good tip that I can share from my experience in this area is to use worms. Fish would go for worms more than lures.
The little shops and resturants in the area are great, each one having something different or delicious, and I love the fact that the local grocery store/ good store is a true trading post!
I already can't wait to go back here!

“Beautiful scenery”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Simply enjoyed driving around the lake, stopping at many vantage points for pictures. Great places to walk and particularly love one spot where there were 3 beautiful old churches sitting side by side.

“Beautiful and relaxing”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

Perfect views, swimming and boating. Tried our hand at fishing but we weren't experinced. We rented a pontoon boat and loved going around the lake. Lots of islands to rent houses on and spectacular views everywhere. We loved the seaplane tour from above too.
