Forkstown, Maine is a unorganized territory in southern Aroostook county. This area is so sparsely populated that it is lumped together with the other unorganized townships in the area of Benedicta, Silver Ridge, Molunkus, and others to come up with a total population of under 500 people. The Forkstown lot would make a year-round accessible camp or off-grid home site. There are no utility lines in Forkstown, so don’t even ask about utility power. The property is about 20 miles to the city of Houlton, where you would shop, dine or find access to medical professionals.
The woods on the property and surrounding it are home to all of Maine’s game animals. Tracks of moose, snow shoe hare, ruffed grouse and coyotes were all observed when I walked the parcel. Hiking, hunting, snowshoeing can all be enjoyed on the property. This area is home to good populations of wild game. The woods surrounding the property are visited by outdoor enthusiasts during Maine’s hunting and fishing seasons.
Although there are no water features on the property, nearby the east and west branches of the Mattawamkeag river can be found.

The moving waters of the Mattawamkeag are very good canoeing waters.
