Look for a Moose. We were lucky. We found one. Be careful, a Moose can be just as effective as a wrecking ball to your car.
A great area to view Moosehead Lake with mountains in the background. There are camping facilities here. This is a perfect spot for going out on the boat and fish all day.
Sunset along Moosehead Lake is absolutely spectacular. Here is one of my better sunset photos. What great weather I hit here.

Good for: Solo
The view from the entire dining room is absolutely breathtaking. The food and service are top notch. Go downstairs for a drink first - or after - and shoot some pool. I enjoyed the Mooseheart cocktail - vodka, cranberry juice, grenadine, triple sec, champagne. Ask for Bruce, the owner, and if we're not sitting at it, the table for two in the alcove (very cozy and romantic). We're from Philadelphia, so are used to excellent dining (Rose Tatoo, Le Bec Fin, Tequilas) and the Lodge is right up there. Not cheap - but then, it was soooo very worth it. We plan on going back very soon.
Favorite Dish: The beef tenderloin was outstanding, as were the sea scallops. The fresh tomato salad was also to die for.
Until a few years ago, you could take a train here, but only to Canada, not to the rest of the US.
Alas, no passenger trains anymore....
Take the toll road through the woods east of Greenville, and reach this wonderful monument of industrial archaeology.
Take a plane ride over the lake. I personally did not do this. But it was an intriguing idea. There are plane rides available to tourists.

The local lake is not called for nothing Moosehead Lake.
To have a sure sighting of moose, drive along the forest road in the late afternoon.
You can drive all round the lake, but it's nearly 100 miles, and you have to pay toll on the road.
Fondest memory: Meeting more moose than cars on a 100 mile trip...
