All of these lakes are very large and should be greatly respected for the ability to build up wind and very rough conditions very quickly. It is advised you carry overnight emergency equipment in the event you need to get off the water.
The campground is located on Aziscohos Lake which is long and narrow and very nice. The launch area at the camp ground is protected and suitable for all types of boats.
Other lakes in the area include:
Rangeley – This is a very nice lake but it is very built up with camps. There are several places to launch including a state campground and a large public launch area in the center of town. There is also a place in Oquossac.
Mooselookmeguntic – This is a very large lake that can get very windy very quickly. It is also a very beautiful lake with lots of coves, islands and beaches. We were on lower Mooselookmegunic one day when the wind came up and we had great fun trying to surf on the waves. There are many campsites on the lake if you wish to camp out a few nights. Many launching areas are available and the people at the camp ground will tell you where they are. It is also possible to paddle into Cupsuptic lake as they are joined.
Cupsuptic – This lake is visible from Rt 16 and there is a launch area just off the highway. There is also a launch area closer to Rangeley that you can launch into the Kennebago River and from there you can paddle up the river or into Cupsuptic lake. This part of the lake is very close to Mooselookmeguntic so you can paddle into either lake.
Upper and Lower Richardson Lakes. These lakes are really nice with many camp sites and beaches. There is a launching area off Rt 16 into Upper Richardson Lake. You can paddle all around Upper Richardson Lake and if you paddle down the east side you will see the Upper Dam which is one of the dams that controls the water levels in this area. There is a portage trail in this area which will take you into Mooselookmeguntic.
All these lakes have islands and lots of inlets and coves to explore. We often see moose, deer and eagles in these areas.
Aziscohos Mountain (3,186 ft.) is very close. The campground will give you directions to the trail head.
Bald Mountain has several trails up to the summit and a fire tower with great views of the entire area.
West Kennebago Mountain is also near.
The Appalachian Trail is also in this area – There are several trail heads available for starting and or ending a trip on the AT.
