"A True Maine Wilderness Experience....since 1872"   

"Nahmakanta" is one of Maine's last truly authentic and traditional Wilderness Camps. Situated in the heart of Maine's fabled "North Woods". we are a wonderful choice for family wilderness vacations ! Our historic, 19th century dining lodge and beautifully restored lakefront guest cabins are the only buildings on sparkling, spring-fed "Nahmakanta", often called Maine's most spectacular lake ! Except for our Maine wilderness cabins, the Nahmakanta shoreline is entirely wild, with enormous granite boulders and incredible 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.



Our entire area.... is a living museum of natural history, where nature lovers will find an amazing variety of wildlife, including a large moose population and over 100 species of birds (loons nest right near camp !) Come explore Nahmakanta's ten miles of wild shoreline by canoe or kayak. Hike our many trails (including the famous "Appalachian Trail") that lead to scenic overlooks, spectacular gorges, towering pine forests ! For anglers, there is incredible backcountry fishing for salmon and brook trout up to five pounds..!    


".....our family had an amazing time at Nahmakanta.  In this day and age, its very difficult to get away from work, school, email, television. But our family was able to leave all those things behind and enjoy the natural beauty of this area.  Most important, we spent time together as

a family that we will never forget...."

"True Maine Wilderness"

"We are often asked to describe the difference between Nahmakanta and other lodges nearer to town that advertise themselves as "wilderness" or "adventure" camps offering a "wilderness experience." Many of them are alongside heavily traveled roads or on lakes crowded with summer cottages, powerboats and jet skis. Nahmakanta is a truly authentic wilderness camp in a completely natural setting that is absolutely unique in the Eastern U.S."
