Fishing

Seboomook Wilderness Campground is located right on the shores of Moosehead Lake – where fishing enthusiasts regularly make the trek to pull brag-worthy brook trout, salmon, and lake trout from its depths. Launch your boat at our marina and spend the day on the lake, or stand on the dock and cast in the early morning with the kids. Either way, you are likely to get something on the end of your hook. If you want alternatives to lake fishing, the world-class brook trout and salmon waters of the famed West Branch of Penobscot are within a 10-minute drive from the campground. In addition, there are countless smaller lakes and ponds in the same area that are considered trophy brook trout waters.
