I'm just starting to plan a trip to Mooselookmeguntic and Upper and Lower Richardson lakes in Maine this August and was wondering if anyone could suggest some of the better campsites, or any other general information.

S Arm Campground controls Richardson and Stephen Phillips Preserve controls Mooselookmeguntic.

Do you have any favorite campsites, and which would be the better starting point, South Arm or Cupsuptic?
no favs but Cupsuptic|

has more sites to hide on.. Richardson is long narrow and right now the winds are howling and the temp at freezing. Its one of those lakes where the wind either goes right up or right down the lake.
Thanks for the info!|

A couple of years ago I planned to do the trip from South Richardson to Rangeley, due to the wind I ended up changing plans a doing it north to south instead. It was off season so I didn't have to worry about campsite reservations. We stayed at Narrows and Shelter Island, both were very nice. Be ready for wind.
Only been once|

I went through the area south to north, starting in Lake Umbagog and ending in Rangeley. We camped on the south side of Metallak Island in South Richardson...nice site, great beach, but a cabin nearby. We also camped at Stoney Batter Point on Mooselookmeguntic. Very nice site. I'm pretty sure reservations are needed during season. We went off-season.
How difficult is the carry from|

Richardson to Umbagog? Is there a shuttle service available like there is on the Allagash?

Its a rough woods road.

On the other hand the portage between Mooselook... and Richardson is quite easy.

I camped at Whitney Point, the last site on the east side going north. It's in a small sheltered cove with two adjoining sites.
