At 40 miles long and 10 miles wide with 80 mostly uninhabited Islands, Moosehead is truly the gem of the Northeast. It is the largest lake in Maine and the largest mountain lake in the Eastern United States. Situated in the Longfellow mountains in the Maine Highlands region, the lake is the source of the Kennebec River. Set at an elevation of 1023 feet, covering a land area of 118 square miles, with 280 miles of shoreline, Moosehead at 75,451 acres is one of the largest freshwater lakes in the United States.
Moosehead is a fabulous place to explore, swim in its crystal-clear waters, fish for Salmon, Trout and Smallmouth Bass or just boat to a secret place to enjoy the sunset where it’s unlikely that you will see anyone else. You will most likely see a Moose as they outnumber humans 3 to 1. You can boat to Mount Kineo and explore its sandy beach looking for Arrowheads left behind by long ago Indian Tribes. The lake is an elixir for those who lead busy city.
