We kayaked with the Loons... ducks visited us while we enjoyed sunsets down by the lake, but we saw no moose. Perhaps on our next trip. Great place for kayaking, hiking and camping.

Especially if you are there in the fall, as I was. Peaceful, tranquil and surrounded of course by gently sloping mountains. Fantastic colors, environmentally responsible access to and use of this lake guarantee that it will impress for future generations. All over are wonderful hiking...More

We were only there for one night, but the lake was gorgeous and the people we met were friendly. The warm night and full moon made it extra special

We toured the lake on the SS Katahdin and really enjoyed a few hours on the water. It's a pretty lake with a lot of history. We went as far as Sugar Island before turning back.

Lovely little town, hiking, boating, fishing, great local restaurants. I bet they hop in the winter with snow sports too.

We were up in this area for a week and enjoyed every minute of it. The lake is wonderful and there is so much to do. If you're into scenery, then this place is a must see.

A great small book to pick up is "Best Easy Day Hikes around Greenville" by Greg Westrich. I found it very helpful.
