PENOBSCOT RIVER CORRIDOR CANOE TRIPS
A perfect waterway for a family or group wilderness canoe trip, the Penobscot River Corridor offers much in the way of scenery, well kept campsites, and plenty of wilderness settings. A great way for vacationers and all outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy the wilds of Maine.
We offer trips from 3-7 days, and up to 40 miles, from the Penobscot Farm put in, down the scenic West Branch of the Penobscot River and down beautiful Chesuncook Lake (optional nights on Lobster Lake are possible), and 3 night trips to beautiful Lobster Lake are well worth the effort.
On each of these canoe trips, we'll spend some time visiting the famous Chesuncook Village, the only village in Maine that is accessible only by plane, boat or snowmobile. The village is home to just a handful of year-round residents. One of them is Jack Murphy who operates Chesuncook’s only store. He sells only a few items in the store, but a day trip to Jack's for homemade root beer or a root beer float is always a very pleasant & refreshing part of our trip.
Each of these trips covers a portion of the journey that Henry David Thoreau took during one of his trips "To the Maine Woods". Wildlife sightings are common and the views of Maine's Katahdin, in the distance from Chesuncook Lake, are striking.
Mostly a flat water canoe trip, the river portion of our trip on the famous West Branch of the Penobscot River, offers plenty of current for beginning canoeists to learn paddle strokes and test their skills on a wild Maine river. The lakes portion of our trip is down Chesuncook Lake, the third largest lake in Maine, and offers great views of Maine's highest peak, Katahdin.
Campsites each night will be riverside or on the very scenic Chesuncook & Lobster Lakes. Each day there will be plenty of time for relaxing, swimming, fishing, or moose watching.
A true Maine hidden treasure, Lobster Lake offers an excellent opportunity for young or beginning paddlers to learn new skills, outdoor enthusiasts to enjoy an exceptional piece of Maine's wilderness, and for fisherman to catch some of the northeast's finest brook trout!
A great trip for beginners and families, a canoe trip on Chesuncook Lake offers a wilderness experience on Maine's 3rd largest lake. A waterway made famous by Henry David Thoreau, Chesuncook Lake offers fantasic views of Katahdin, Maine's highest peak, many wildlife sightings, and is home to Maine's only roadless town, Chesuncook Village.
A perfect family and group canoeing experience, the West Branch of the Penobscot River canoe trip is one for both beginners, vacationers, and all outdoor enthusiasts. This is our most popular Penobscot Corridor trip!
Our 4 night trip includes an additional night, the first night being spent at the beautiful Lobster Lake. The views of Big Spencer Mountain, and the sandy beach campsites, make for a wonderful and scenic first night of your trip.
