If you’re only in Moosehead Lake, Maine for one day, our advice is to focus on exploring the lake. The largest body of fresh water in Maine, Moosehead Lake is a place where nature is completely preserved. Take in the magnificent sights and prepare to see wildlife such as moose, deer and rare birds up close. Your best bet is to sign up for a tour with a registered guide (we recommend checking out the Northeast Guide Service for this)—you’ll cover the most ground and can customize the experience to make the most of your time. Depending on where you stay, you may want to ask the concierge about exclusive activities offered to guests. You’ll find that many are designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the area so that you can get the most from a quick trip.
