The largest mountain lake in the eastern U.S., Moosehead is as famous for the lush green mountains that surround it as for its tentacled expanse and more than 80 islands (many with campsites). Anglers come for the unsurpassed trout and salmon fishing, and paddlers can circle Mount Kineo, a 1,789-foot peninsular monolith that rises out of the water like a huge stone whaleback.
