Why visit Moosehead Lake? Activities, Views & Adventure!

Moosehead Lake Maine is the destination to satisfy the explorer in all of us. Since the time of Henry David Thoreau, the lake has been a mecca for those seeking unique outdoor experiences. Located in the heart of The Maine Highlands region, the lake really does look like a moose’s head, complete with antlers. As the largest lake in Maine, and second-largest lake in New England, Moosehead Lake serves as a backdrop for incredible scenic recreational attractions including Mt. Katahdin, Mt. Kineo, the Appalachian Trail, and the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. The surrounding 4400 square miles of West Central Maine wilderness offers fishing, hunting, camping, white water rafting, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, exploring, skiing, snowmobiling, golfing, sailing, photography, wildlife viewing or just enjoying the unspoiled natural beauty.
