Mountains of Possibilities… Come Play In Our Backyard


Throughout the Region, you can find numerous opportunities to camp and explore so many different outdoor activities. If you love camping, then Maine's Northwestern Mountains has just what you’re looking for! From full hookups for your camper or setting up camp in a tent, we have it all here!

Heading North-bound past Sugarloaf, you’ll find Cathedral Pines Campground in Eustis. The Cathedral Pines Campground offers direct access to Flagstaff Lake to kayak, paddleboat or canoe. The campground provides beautiful views of the lake and the majestic Bigelow Mountain Range which is part of the Bigelow Preserve. It has 115 campsites (trailer and tent), Group Sites, fireplaces and tables, laundry facilities and even a rec hall and playground!

Natanis Point Campground in the Chain of Ponds Township has direct access to the Ponds for canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and fishing. There are “primitive” campsites available along with sites with amenities. So, pack up those camping supplies and the whole family and head our way for a camping adventure you’ll never forget!

Only 20 minutes from the Appalachian Trail, Deer Farm Camps & Campground provides a welcoming home base from which to explore the local countryside. Those who prefer boating, fishing and swimming will enjoy beautiful Tuft’s Pond, one of the three mountain lakes within walking distance of your campsite.

Flagstaff Lake and the Bigelow Preserve also offer primitive camping sites on a first come first serve basis, although some may require campfire permits. Please see Maine’s High Peaks Hiking Map and The Valley Below Map for remote camping site locations and which sites require fire permits. Campfire permits may be obtained at the Maine Forest Service: 207-624-3700. These primitive campsites fill up quickly during the peak summer season, so don’t show up too late to claim your spot.
