Maine's premier lake region offers great outdoor recreation and sports, including fishing, hunting, mountain biking, canoeing, hiking, and "flightseeing" by seaplane.
We toured the lake on the SS Katahdin and really enjoyed a few hours on the water. It's a pretty lake with a lot of history. We went as far as Sugar Island before turning back.

A tip of a small peninsula rising almost 800 feet and located on the eastern side of Moosehead Lake.
The golf course on Mt. Kineo is unique. The park trails etc. have a good variety of difficulty. Awesome views! The snack bar in the club house is just that. Snacks and a few sandwiches. Pricey but good. When we were visiting, the young gal working there really needs to smile and be sociable to guests. She doesn't interact with customers, as in, says nothing, The man behind the counter is pleasant and very busy. The shuttle is fun, quick, and runs often. We had a good time!

Located in the Moosehead Lake region, this park offers a small beach, campsites and boat launch facilities.
We went here one afternoon just to walk around and visit the small playground. We were by the water and it was pretty cold. My grandkids played in the playground for a bit. I think this would be nice to bring your grill (they do have some there too) and just kick back by the water, enjoy the scenery and eat lunch or dinner.
It cost a few bucks to get in and that fee helps support the park.

A mountain hiking area where one can view a B-52 bomber wreck.
We visit Maine to hit the ATV trails. The B52 site is a great ride to learn a bit of local history. The site is somber and at the same time amazing. It's amazing that this site has been so greatly preserved for such a long period of time. This is our second year visiting the site to pay our respects.

A four-mile-long gorge with vertical walls rising up to 400 feet.
We are experienced hikers but I started out with a sore knee and this hike didn't help. My fault. Walking sticks really help in many spots. We did the whole loop, took about 5-6 hrs with stops along the way. Made a mistake in taking our Lab along, thinking the trail would be milder and she would enjoy the chance for swims. This is rough hike for a dog as there are many spots where she had to be helped up or down rocky areas.

A wildlife sanctuary that is owned by the Maine Audubon Society.
Central Maine is about hiking, birds, Moose, and beautiful forests. We drove to Rockwood, enjoying the sights along the rural roads. The trailhead was easy to find. The area is a preserve curated by the Maine Audubon Society. We hiked the 3.5 miles through the woods to the Welcome Center. The center had all sorts of educational and historical displays. The keeper was friendly and we enjoyed talking with him. The nearby lake was very scenic. We took the easy way back to the car, following a smooth access dirt road.
It was a very enjoyable hike,and we finished the morning with a great lunch in nearby Monson.
