North Maine Woods
A region of over 3.5 million acres of top quality commercial forest land. Included within its boundaries are two of the most famous wild rivers of the Northeast – the St. John and the Allagash. North Maine Woods completely surrounds the Allagash Wilderness Waterway.
It is an organization. Landowners – big and small, corporations, individuals, and families have joined with Maine’s natural resource agencies in a partnership to solve today’s problems and plan for the future.
It is a spirit. Past and present; people and nature meet here. Men and women who make their living from the woods and those who relax here love this area. And through North Maine Woods, they work together to see that while they take forest products, fish, wildlife, and pleasure from this great region, they take nothing that will make it any less in the future than it is today.
Their website provides all the information you need on access, fees, maps, camping, simple rules and more.
