Experience Maine’s most beautiful lake at Nahmakanta Wilderness Lake Cabins. Authentic wilderness cabins and lodge were built in an older world astride the sparkling, spring-fed waters of Nahmakanta. Surrounded by an enormous roadless preserve with an amazing variety of wildlife and over 100 species of birds, this incredible backcountry is a natural provider for wild brook trout and landlocked salmon fishing. Let many miles of maintained hiking trails lead you to scenic overlooks, spectacular gorges, and towering pine forests from Nahmakanta Wilderness Lake Camps.


A traditional and authentic Maine wilderness camp in the heart of Maine's fabled "North Woods" and a wonderful spot for family wilderness vacations, this historic, 19th century dining lodge and restored lakefront guest cabins are the only buildings on sparkling, spring-fed Nahmakanta, often called Maine's most spectacular lake! Except for the Maine wilderness cabins, the Nahmakanta shoreline is entirely wild, with enormous granite boulders and beautiful natural sand beaches. Surrounding us is a vast wilderness preserve of mountains, forests, and crystal clear lakes that is absolutely unique in the Eastern U.S.


Enter the living museum of natural history surrounding Lake Nahmakanta, where nature lovers will find an amazing variety of wildlife, including a large moose population and over 100 species of birds! Come explore Nahmakanta's ten miles of wild shoreline by canoe or kayak. Hike the many trails, including the famous Appalachian Trail, or experience incredible backcountry fishing for salmon and brook trout that grow to up to five pounds!
