Lake Regions of Maine
The Katahdin Region
An exciting wilderness adventure awaits anyone who visits this area no matter the time of year. The Katahdin Region offers a fantastic family experience whether it's for the wildlife and wilderness enthusiast or the sporting adventurer. There are miles and miles of terrain to be explored by any hiker, hunter, or fisherman. The lakes, rivers and streams are considered among the best in the world for kayakers, canoeists, and whitewater thrillseekers. In the winter season snowmobilers will find hundreds of miles of groomed trails offering spectacular scenery.
Located just an hour's drive from Bangor and easily accessible from the Interstate, the Katahdin region is home to Baxter State Park and Maine's tallest peak, Mt. Katahdin. Baxter State Park is a wilderness area of over 200,000 acres, intersected by more than 175 miles of hiking trails including the eastern end of the Appalachian Trail.
Despite its remoteness, the Katahdin Region offers its visitors and residents a high quality of life. The school systems in the Millinocket area are outstanding and offer students a wide variety of extracurricular activities. First quality health care services and facilities are found at the Millinocket Regional Hospital and there are two medical centers in East Millinocket. The community recreation resources include swimming pools, tennis courts, baseball and soccer fields, basketball courts, a golf course, and launch ramps for boats.
Boaters and fishermen know that most lakes and ponds are found in the southern end of this region. Find here Schoodic Lake, Seboeis Lake, North and South Twin Lake, Upper, Middle and Lower Jo-Mary Lake, Millinocket Lake, and Dolby Pond. In the upper end of the region are Caribou Lake, Chesuncook Lake, and Telos Lake.
Whether you're a fisherman, hiker, snowmobiler, or just a lover of nature and wilderness, this region is for you.
