Debsconeag Lakes Wilderness Area

Debsconeag Lakes Wilderness Area

The Nature Conservancy manages this pocket wilderness in the shadow of Mount Katahdin, accessed only by hiking or paddling in. The organization also maintains a couple dozen spacious and impeccably clean lakeside campsites—with picnic tables, huge firepits, and clean latrines—available on a first-arrival basis with no reservations or fees.
