  • Killer white water!!!!!!

    White water rafting! One amazing sport that gets the adrenaline going! If you have never been, I would definitely recommend going if you like adventures. Maine provides some wicked rivers for rafting. These include the Kennebec, Penobscot and Dead river. They also have many companies offering day and week-end trips since this is a booming business...

Millinocket Nightlife

    There's not much in the way of night life. The La Casa, just outside of town on 157, is an option I suppose, if you like that sort of thing. I didn't move to Millinocket for its night life, and I wouldn't suggest you visit it for that reason. There are other good things about Millinocket.

Millinocket Transportation

  • YOU MUST HAVE A VEHICLE HERE

    When in this neck of the woods, you must have a vehicle to get around. Make sure you don't let the tank get too low, because at times there is as much as 40 miles between exits. Be prepared, and there aren't a lot of rest areas along the way.

  • If coming from points south,...

    If coming from points south, don't waste your eyes on I-95. Take Route 11. It's bumpier and your chances of hitting a moose are greatly increased, but it's much more interesting.Millinocket is small. You can't get too lost.

    When seeing moose in the wild, you do not want to get very close to a mother and her cow, because the Bull is not far away and when she feels threatened they will charge.

Millinocket What to Pack

    by kfander Written Oct 4, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: If camping at Baxter State Park, or hiking the Appalachian Trail, bring something rugged. If you don't already have what you need, Ames is your best bet in Millinocket. You'll find Ames on 157, also known as Central Avenue.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring something rugged, and appropriate for the season. If you need anything, Ames will be your best choice.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: IGA, Shop and Save, or Rite-Aid; all very near to one another, on 157 (Central).

    Photo Equipment: IGA, Shop and Save, Rite Aid, or Ames will all have disposable cameras or film. Ames is the only one likely to have non-disposable cameras or other photographic supplies.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Ames is your best choice, although True Value Hardware on Aroostook Avenue also carries outdoor supplies.

    I had a great July 4th last year. A couple of friends, my wife and myself climbed the biggest mountain in Maine. Mt. Katahdin. 5, 268 feet. It was my first time ever climbing a mountain. I am so hooked. The weather was great. We didn't need any special information. I did purchase a hiking guide to give us a little help. The only thing you have to do is bring water and power bars. You will burn a lot of calories. We all had camelbaks brought nuts and dried fruits for snacks. The entire trip took us about 9 hours up and down.

  • Planning to hike Katahdin?

    This website has everything you need to plan your hike -http://americasroof.com/me.shtml Although challenging all the way, from getting into the park early enough to be allowed to hike to the summit to actually undertaking the hike, this is an excellent hike! One of the best in New England!

  • Most people visit Millinocket...

    Most people visit Millinocket to be close to the Baxter State Park, where Mt. Katahdin lives. Millinocket itself is very small and simple, but hiking or camping in the Baxter State Park is a must. We arrived in Baxter State Park very early in the morning, because you basically must arrive at the gate no later than 5 am to get in the park. We...
