Quiet, pristine, with the call of the loons and fall leaves on the mountains surrounding the lake. A gem, especially during this colorful season!

Very nice scenery, without the busy traffic in town Camden. Don't bring the pets. Unfortunately we found the construction job on Hwy 52 but the lake itself is a very beautiful setting. Clean well kept up and appealing to the eyes.

We are visiting some friends for a few days and staying at a vacation rental on the lake. There are no words to describe the beauty all around. The peace and quiet alone are invaluable. We kayaked a little on the lake yesterday but we...More

We engaged in several drives as the weather was not conducive for outdoor activities. This was lovely. We did not stop for Fernand's Neck; that was the plan, but the rain started again.

We love this spot because of the natural beauty, the kids love it because of the warm(ish) water and the dock they can swim out to. Great on a hot summer day, but also lots of hiking for when it's not warm enough to swim.

A great Maine lake to spend some free time or vacation on. This lake offers all-season recreational options. It can be a bit busy during summer weekends, but it's not over-crowded. Check it out and have some fun!
