Nahmakanta Lake Is A Beautiful Lake Nestled In The Maine Mountains

We’d guess that most people think of Maine’s coast when they imagine state waters. With it’s inlets and rocky outcroppings, it certainly is unmistakable. But there’s a lot more to Maine than just that. In fact, we have an entire area referred to as the Lakes & Mountains Region! While we love taking some time to visit, if you’re willing to travel a bit further off-the-beaten-path you’ll find one of the most beautiful lakes in the state.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

Nahmakanta Lake is surrounded by the Nahmakanta Public Lands. You can learn more about the area by checking out this beautifully designed brochure. It’s best to plan your visit in advance so you can be sure to know how and where to access the lake. A great jumping-off point is Nahmakanta Lake Wilderness Camps, the only lodge or accommodation on the lake.
