We love this spot because of the natural beauty, the kids love it because of the warm(ish) water and the dock they can swim out to. Great on a hot summer day, but also lots of hiking for when it's not warm enough to swim.

A great Maine lake to spend some free time or vacation on. This lake offers all-season recreational options. It can be a bit busy during summer weekends, but it's not over-crowded. Check it out and have some fun!

The beach area is decent but no sand. The bottom is soft and muddy so you don't have to worry about walking on loose rocks. Not my first choice in beaches but a good area for beginner swimmers. Beautiful mountain views and wildlife.

This is a great lake for kayaking, and enjoying a few hours on the water. You're able to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. There are places you can pull up to and walk around, or stop to have a picnic. We also had...More

I was there visiting in mid August. It was just the right time to enjoy floating on the Lake for a Camden evening concert. Additionally, check out the summer schedule for the Camden orchestra.
