Moosehead Lake is Maine's premier lake region that offers great outdoor recreation and sports, including fishing, hunting, white water rafting, mountain biking, canoeing, hiking, wild life (moose) tours, and 'flightseeing' by seaplane. You can also enjoy a cruise on the lake on a vintage logging ship, the Katahdin. Spend some time in the Moosehead Marine Museum and learn the history of the lake, the 'Kate', and the logging industry in the region.
Take a short 30 minute drive north to the town of Rockwood where you will find Mt. Kineo. The once 1920's resort is now home to a 9-hole golf course tucked against the cliffs of the mountain, restaurants, cottages, and miles of hiking trails with breathtaking views of Moosehead Lake.
Visit the little town of Greenville to enjoy the variety of restaurants (from fine dining to handmade pizzas and subs), specialty shops, and much more. After dinner, enjoy 'Desserts on the Verandah' at DKB's Catering or Gifford's ice cream at the Dairy Bar. Finish off the day with a relaxing walk along the water in Thoreau Park. Friday evenings in July and August, meet at the Town's Gazebo and enjoy live music from local bands while you watch the sunset over the lake.
Enjoy hiking? This is the place for you! Miles and miles of hikes for all ages with magnificent views of Moosehead Lake and surrounding ponds. Hike...to the fire tower on the top of Big Moose (aka Squaw) Mountain, to the wreckage of a B-52 bomber on Elephant Mountain, to the fire tower on top of Mt. Kineo, to Gulf Hagas and Screw Augar Falls, or the conical peaks of Borestone Mountain.
'The International Sea Plane Fly-In' is held the weekend after Labor Day every year in Greenville. Hundreds of sea plane enthusiasts make this yearly pilgrimage to Moosehead Lake (Greenville) to display their planes, enjoy friendly flying competitions, and show off their flying expertise. Visit www.seaplanefly-in.org for more information.
Drop by the Visitor Center about 2 miles south of Greenville on Route 6 and 15 for additional information about local attractions and events.
