Most People Don’t Know About This Remote But Totally Accessible Maine Island

Mainers know that finding a good way to explore the outdoors isn’t especially difficult. Between gorgeous forests hidden in plain sight and secret places where you can completely relax, there are plenty places to enjoy. But, what CAN be a challenge is finding someplace new – someplace undiscovered that feels a bit removed from the rest of the world. That’s why we love Frenchboro Preserve, part of Frenchboro Long Island!

Note: A previous version of this article stated that camping was allowed on Frenchboro Long Island. This is not the case. Frenchboro Preserve may only be accessed on a day-use basis. Camping and fires are prohibited.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
