PADDLING AND BOATING
Canoeing and Kayaking
600 acres of peaceful water at mostly undeveloped Sturtevant Pond offer a great morning paddle where you can drift with our resident loons or float while watching moose and deer feed in the shallows. The Magalloway River makes for a great day-long paddle where you can enjoy watching eagles, ospreys and the other waterfowl that make the Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge their home. Or for the adventurous, carry your kayak in to one of the many small isolated ponds that dot the area and paddle in solitude away from the other recreational enthusiasts. Our guests tell us that there is so much water available to paddle that they could not see it all if they were to try to paddle it in a year.
The use of a boat (and/or canoe/kayaks) comes with the rental of any cabin. We also have a small number of boats for rent to the general public or if you have a large party and need more than one boat. You can also, of course, bring your own boat to take out on the larger Rangeley Lakes—Aziscohos, Mooselookmeguntic, Umbagog, Cupsuptic, Rangeley, Kennabago and Richardson—which are easily accessible from the camps. There is only carry-on boat access on Sturtevant Pond.
