This is an opportunity to have an incredible base camp facility in the North Maine Woods approximately 75 miles from civilization. This is a turn-key opportunity to have access to the trout and musky fishing available ¼ mile away and the millions of acres of large game filled tracts of land.
The property is located in the North Maine Woods which is an area of approximately 3.5 million acres of sparsely populated commercial working forest. This is an area where the moose outnumber the people. Countless lakes, ponds, rivers and streams provide angling opportunities. From brook trout to muskies, you can find numerous open water and ice fishing opportunities accessible from the American Logger camps. There are very few smaller parcels within the North Maine Woods area. Most of the land is owned by corporations, but the unique relationship here provides access to recreate on the commercial woodlands owned by the landowners within the North Maine Woods.
The area is home to some of the largest whitetail deer found in the United States. These big woods bucks are tremendous trophies. Hunting for them will test your skills as an outdoorsman. Not only is patience required, but also a great deal of stamina. Large bucks and moose have been taken by the owners of this property and their guests over the years. Tracks of moose and large whitetails are often seen in the snow or soft dirt of the gravel roadways. Ruffed grouse often flush from the road edges. If you like wilderness and remoteness, you can find that here.
Water and Land Features
Hardwood ridges and stands of dark spruce timber make up the forested lands of the area. Seboomook Lake, the St. John Ponds and several trout streams are located nearby. Baker Lake and 5th St John pond are both very good muskie waters. One of the owners caught a 43”, 17 ½ pound muskie from 5th St John Pond which is ¼ mile from the property. The tributaries that flow in and out of the St John ponds are filled with native brook trout, and nearby Russell Pond has good fly fishing for brook trout available. Landlocked salmon can be found in the west branch of the Penobscot which is a short drive from the property.
