Free campsites - first come first serve

Find amazing dispersed rustic campsites around Second Roach Pond at AMC's Medawisla Lodge - call ahead for more info. 

Medawisla is a new lodge within northern Maine's 100-mile wilderness, a dark sky preserve. 

Sites are self-serve and are accessible via water or by car. Beautiful waterfront sites - bring your own kayak/canoe/SUP and you can paddle over to the main lodge or explore the lake while listening to the loons call. Moose sitings are frequent too.

Main lodge is new and gorgeous! Call ahead to reserve meals: breakfast and dinner available at additional cost (when available - call to reserve and inquire about current COVID 19 restrictions)

Also availble via Medawisla Lodge: guided hikes, fishing, kids activities (fee-based services). First priority reservations are given to paying lodge/cabin/bunkhouse guests, so call in advance to arrange or try your luck once you're there. 

Glamping experience (an AMC guide will set up your campsite and get your campfire ready for your arrival) may also be available - call to inquire. 

When we found these sites, my buddy immediately called them Narnia. I can't disagree!
