There is a bird that haunts the forest around Sturtevant Pond that enjoys serenading our guests. It is seldom seen, but if you listen real closely you can hear its melancholy song. It is called the white-throated sparrow and is our favorite songbird. I make a bet that if you were to visit Sturtevant Pond Camps, you will also be one of its fans as you and your family sit on the porch of your cabin in the evening, resting from your full day of enjoying Mother Nature and all she offers in this magical place.
Magalloway is a name uncommon in today’s world and conjures up thoughts of Native Americans, woodland spirits and Mother Nature. Before Maine became a state and much of the land in western Maine was uninhabited, only a few brave souls lived in this area and scratched out a living in the woods. It was known as the Magalloway Settlements and was identified as a stepping-off place to the vast forest that lay to its north and east. The surrounding lakes, ponds and woodlands teemed with fish, fowl and game, which drew sportsmen from far away.
Today Magalloway, Maine, and Sturtevant Pond Camps allow visitors to enjoy those old days when time is forgotten. The three housekeeping cabins hold the charm that was intended when they were built, some almost 100 years ago.
Loons nest on the shore of Sturtevant Pond and serenade at night whomever is listening. Sometimes an owl or two or a coyote will accompany them, offering a choir that cannot be heard anywhere else. Whether you are in search of solitude, fish or game, at Sturtevant Pond Camps it is right at your fingertips.
Come join us on beautiful, undeveloped 600 acre Sturtevant Pond, the best kept secret in the Rangeley Lakes region of western Maine. Rental of one of our cabins includes use of a boat, motor and gas or a canoe or kayaks for fishing or exploring the lake.
Each cabin can accommodate a family or parties of 4 to 6. They range from a 2-story rustic log lodge with 2 bedrooms, family dining room and living room (Cabin 1), to a more modern two bedroom (Cabin 2) and a newly renovated two bedroom log cabin (Cabin 3). All have full kitchens and baths with hot and cold running water. We supply linens. All you have to bring is food. Wifi is free and available in most spots. (Cell service is spotty, depending on your carrier.)
From the camps, there is easy access to the Magalloway River, Kennebago River and the Upper Androscoggin River (Errol, NH) as well as many great trout ponds and streams and all the Rangeley Lakes. Hunters have access to over 200,000 acres of timberland for deer, moose and bird hunting. Several excellent hiking trails are only minutes away. For paddling enthusiasts, the Magalloway River and Umbagog Lake offer some of the best in all of New England.
