How Do I Get There?

Gravel Road to the Camps from Village of Eagle Lake

(20 miles from State Route 11)

The following are directions from the north on Route 11. The timber companies maintain mile markers to help navigate, however, certain markers may be missing or damaged.

1. After passing through the Town of Eagle Lake, travel south/west on State Rt. 11 for about 8 miles.

2. Turn left (immediately before Hedgehog Mountain State maintained Rest Area) onto Pennington Road (gravel); follow to the end (should be multiple mile markers)—about 11 miles.

3. Turn left onto Square Lake Road and join mile 7.5. Follow Square Lake Road to mile 12.5.

4. Turn left onto Eagle Lake Sporting Camps Road—4 miles to the end; please open and close gate as instructed.

The camps have seasonal access via 20 miles of privately maintained gravel roads. Please confirm the road is passable before attempting to drive to the camps. Call us from Ashland at (207) 444-5108 x 3 and give us a progress report. Leave a message with the time if our voice mail system answers. Cell phone service is spotty. A 4WD vehicle is highly recommended and a must during the wet conditions of spring and fall. Road repairs can force the road to be closed for weeks.

Start your tradition of memorable visits to the historic Eagle Lake Sporting Camps. Awaken to the "dawn chorus" when male birds begin to sing, quietly at first, then loud and hard; and soon, every bird within earshot is singing simultaneously. You are the audience, your theater is a lakeside veranda. You are in Northern Maine—an unsurpassed destination for birders and wildlife photographers.

But that's not all! Experience the world class May salmon fishing, late-summer trophy bear hunting or fall moose, grouse, goose, and duck hunting. Join a nature tour or guided hunt at the lodge of OMM Outfitters, Maine's only Cabela's World's Foremost Destination.

Twenty-mile-long Eagle Lake, is one lake in the famous Fish River chain of lakes that stretches, in northern Maine, 60 miles through beautiful forest almost to the Canadian border, surpassing in primeval beauty and grandeur many of the better-known woodlands and lakes of Maine.

Established in 1889, the Eagle Lake Sporting Camps are located on a peninsula seven miles up the lake from Eagle Lake Village at the outlet of Square Lake thoroughfare and in the midst of a 23,000-acre wilderness reserve. We are on a high knoll among beautiful white birches, facing the lake in a southwesterly direction. The view is magnificent: lake and forest blend, ridge upon ridge looms up, until finally Three Brooks Mountain caps in the distance.

Seven year-round log cabins accommodate from two to ten persons—up to forty guests. The cabins have gas lights and heat, and each has a private bathroom. An additional six cabins are for three-season use, with shared toilet and shower facilities. All the cabins are on the frontage facing the lake, and each has a broad veranda. For fine dining, the legendary Roosevelt Dining Room seats thirty. The Rough Rider Tavern has a large field stone fireplace, regulation pool table, and game room.
