Since 1872, Nahmakanta Lake Wilderness Camps has been a premier destination for hiking, canoeing, kayaking, wildlife and birdwatching, and some of the best trout and salmon fishing in Maine. Our historic 19th century dining lodge and newly restored, private guest cabins are right on the shores of sparkling, spring-fed "Nahmakanta", often called Maine's most beautiful lake ! We are situated in the heart of Maine's fabled "North Woods" between two trout streams in an idyllic setting of tall shade tress, green lawns and wildflowers. Our unique location and exclusive access make this one of New England's finest wilderness vacations ! Moose and nesting loons are often seen right in front of camp. The "100 Mile Wilderness" section of the famed "Appalachian Trail" is just 1/2 mile away.

Don and Angel welcomed the four of us to this rustic but spectacular place. We drove in on the Jo Mary Road, and arrived in time for a great dinner and orientation on the Nahmakanta area. So I'm just going to cut to the chase:...More
