The Nahmakanta Area

Our camp yard lies between two clear-flowing trout streams in an idyllic setting of tall shade trees, spacious green lawns and wild-flowers. From the screened porch of your lakefront log cabin, you will enjoy a spectacular wilderness panorama as far as your eye can see…

View from Nesuntabunt Mountain

Here’s the view looking down Nahmakanta Lake  from the “Appalachian Trail” overlook on Nesuntabunt Mtn. Our lakefront cabins and lodge are situated just under the mountain.

Nesting Loon on Nahmakanta Lake

Almost everyday we watch moose feed in the shallows in front of camp. Our resident loons nest undisturbed, literally within sight of your cabin. Watching loon chicks grow into adults is a summer ritual for us.

Bald Eagle Fishing

Birds nest around us in an amazing variety and abundance. Nearby stream deltas attract beaver and otter, herons, eagles, and osprey. Nightfall is always punctuated by the wild wailing of loons, the stirring symbol of the North.

Beaver Cuttings

Some of our Nahmakanta “neighbors” include a resident family of beavers that have been busy doing a little un-authorized logging in this grove of cedar trees.

   It would take many seasons to hike, paddle and explore all of the natural wonders of the Nahmakanta Area !  And although there is much to do here, it is a particularly good place to do nothing at all…!



“Dear Don and Angel, Of the 4 or 5 other camps that we’ve visited, Nahmakanta is our favorite. Nowhere else can provide the same variety and contrast…… the moods of the big lake, the intimacy of the hike in trout ponds, the views from the Appalachian Trail…..Abbott Meader – Professor of Art (Emeritus)Colby College, Maine
