Area Hiking


Nahmakanta is without question the best hiking camp in Maine! Many miles of beautiful trails literally surround our camp, all very well maintained and exclusively “foot travel only”. We are also situated directly along the famed “100 Mile Wilderness” section of the Appalachian Trail.

Canoeing & Kayaking

Start paddling right from your lakefront cabin, and explore Nahmakanta’s 8 miles of wild shoreline ! We also have dozens of canoes and kayaks stashed for our guests at many other area waterways for fishing, moose viewing and exploring. Our “Nahmakanta Headwaters” canoe trip is a nearby chain of small interconnected lakes and footpaths that makes a wonderful day trip for families (guided or unguided)
