Lobster Lake is perfect for families or folks who just want to relax, explore, and enjoy the Maine woods on one of the finest lakes in the state.
We establish a base camp at a remote campsite along the shores of Lobster Lake. Sleep in, read a book, nap on a sandy beach. There is plenty to explore! It is a short paddle to the trailhead to Lobster Mountain. It’s a 2-mile hike with panoramic views all the way to Katadhin and beyond.
Paddle around the Big Island, stop to explore and hike to the interior of the island. There are some great big rocks to jump off and swim around. Mid August brings a bounty of blueberries, ripe for the picking. Kids of all ages find an endless supply of rocks to skip, trees to identify, and stars to gaze.
