|The scenic upper West Branch of the Penobscot River Trip from Lobster Lake to Chesuncook Lake makes an ideal first canoe-camping experience, and an excellent family trip. Moose sightings are usually plentiful as we paddle this gentle river, following part of Threau's canoe route into the Maine woods. Several miles of class l "rips" provide an introduction to river-reading. Campsites are primitive and beautiful. Chesuncook Lake with it's view of Mt. Katahdin and a visit to historic Chesuncook Village, is one of our favorite places to camp, swim, explore, and pick berries. Let our guides do all the cooking, we serve hearty dinners, bake yeast rolls, banana bread, serve Maine wild blueberry pancakes, and hearty desserts. Open to all ability levels.
