Sep 24, 2015 - Moosehead Lake

Because we left late morning yesterday, we stopped for the night only 107 miles inland at a town called Holden. Today, it was 179 miles to Greenville and it took much longer to travel that distance than I thought. I need to remember that by traveling the regular roads instead of freeways, much time is needed. But we got to town in time to get to the village and see the little maritime museum before the steam-powered tour boat came in. Mom found a nice jacket for only $34 that should keep her nice and warm. We will be on that boat, the...

Aug 1, 2015 - Moosehead Lake

Another day in paradise on the edge of Moosehead lake. When we hear it's in the 90s at home, we really enjoy putting on the fleece and being a little chilly at 70. We stayed again at Casey's in site PA since it's so beautiful. We can see Mt Katadin in the distance and have one of the nicest sites here. Drove back to Greenville to reprovision so we can head farther into the Maine woods.Great 3 days here!

Jul 31, 2015 - Casey's Spencer Bay camps

We woke up to a RMD and have thoroughly enjoyed hanging out at the campground looking at beautiful scenery and 73 degree weather. We walked about 1.5 miles and found chanterelles and lobster mushrooms which we are cooking tonight. We also biked 6.1 miles up the road looking again for Moose and rooms. We just missed a mmose as a car stopped to tell us there was one just ahead. He must've moved on after the car so we didn't see him. It's a beautiful cg and we've decided to stay again tomorrow before moving on!

Jul 30, 2015 - Maine woods

We traveled about 4 miles north and 6 miles west on a dirt road to get to Casey's Spencer Bay campground on Moosehead lake so we could have a lakefront site vs the woods of the sp. This place is great- we're 5 feet from the water looking out to 2 3500 ft mtns. We walked 1.4 miles down the Moose trail to pebble Beach and then biked almost 5 miles looking for Moose and mushrooms. Only chanterelles which we will cook up with our last squash and steak.About 68 degrees and we see where its 89 at home.

Jul 29, 2015 - Lily bay sp

Miles and miles of woods and beautiful old houses on our way to Lily Bay sp on Moosehead lake near Baxter sp. We managed to get one of the 3 open sites for our size camper but it's not on the water. It is way quieter than last night where we were near the loudest campers who were just having a great time outdoors. Bill found reishi mushrooms which are supposed to be good for arthritis. About 72 at 6 pm!

May 13, 2011 - Greenville, ME

We arrived in Greenville, ME this afternoon. The drive was awesome! It is so beautiful up here! We also stopped at the Weathervane restaurant in Portland, ME where they have 2 1-1/4 lb lobsters for $20 on Thursday. I was bummed that I missed it. Surprisingly, the waitress talked to the manager and I got the deal today. I guess they were grateful that I brought up some sunshine from Arizona!!! Everyone is so excited to see sunshine today and I am a very happy girl enjoying lobster!!!! Our lodge is right across the road from Moosehead Lake....

Aug 26, 2010 - Moosin Around Maine

We have enjoyed exploring a lot of small towns and communities in Maine. We have visited everything from covered bridges to huge lakes. The Low's Bridge in Guilford-Sangerville was awesome. This bridge, built in 1857, was washed away by the flood of April 1, 1987. A modern covered bridge, patterned after the original, was built on the original abutments in 1990. The bridge has a clear span of 120 feet over the Piscataquis River. We enjoyed driving around Moosehead Lake in Greenville, Maine. We stopped at Lily Bay State Park and had our...

Jul 16, 2010 - Day 126 - Lazy, hazy day on the lake

This was a day that was truly lazy, for although I didn’t go exploring anywhere…I didn’t even get any chores done either! Caryn had cleaned the 5th wheel yesterday while I went fishing so today I simply started getting it dirty again. Hunter and I took a long walk down to the far rock beach…probably a half a mile along the trail through the woods. I was hoping to see loons…but didn’t and haven’t. I don’t think Caryn believes there are any. It was cloudy today and even sprinkled for a minute or two in the late afternoon. The change in the...

Jul 15, 2010 - Day 125 - I went fishing!

Hunter and I were dressed, done with our morning walk, and outta the camp by 6:50. We were going fishing! I headed up to Lazy Tom Bog first to see if the moose were bogging it – no, so down to where we sighted the giant cow yesterday - and no mooses there either. Early in the morning and sunset are supposed to be the best times. We saw our girl, of course, at high noon. Drove back to Kokadjo and went into the cabin rental building and, to my surprise, found a little store and a darling café inside. Decided to have breakfast. Watched...

Jul 14, 2010 - Day 124 - Exploring Moosehead Lake region

I found a special treat on my morning walk with Hunter…a man climbing a step ladder in a pond down the trail from our camp. He turned out to be a professional photographer shooting lily pads in black and white. Super nice guy. I took his picture…and then several of him in his red canoe as he packed up and paddled up the lake. The canoe once belonged to his father. It was made in the early ‘20’s and has seen many waters and has many stories. Mike Sleeper is his name…you many see his gorgeous photos on www.mikesleeper.com A bit later in the...

Jul 13, 2010 - Day 123 - en route to Moosehead Lake!

I left a little later from Fredericton than I usually depart as I filled and drained and filled the fresh water tank to be prepared for our Moosehead experience. Going through customs was a breeze…really nice lady. I was supposed to have Hunter’s dry dog food in its original packages and didn’t (a 30 lb. bag fits nicely in an ice chest) but she said she would ignore it. However, my grapefruit was a no-no and that brought the agricultural guy over. He took the grapefruit but what saddened me…he took my little potted bamboo that my daughter,...

Jun 19, 2010 - Greenville, ME - Moosehead Family Campground

Our trip from Boothbay Thursday was mostly in the rain for the little over three hours it took us to drive the 130 miles - our longest trip in quite a while. The roads for the last 25 miles were the worst we have had on this trip. For the most part we have been impressed with how nice the roads have been so far but interior Maine has proved to be the exception. We are in Greenville, ME which is on the southern shore of Moosehead Lake, the largest lake in Maine. Moose are supposed to outnumber humans in the area three to one. We are staying...
