Eastern Region Conditions & Alerts

April 8, 2021 | 1:00 PM | Please be aware that because of snow, ice and axle-deep mud on gravel roads that access is still limited on many Public Land Units for the next several weeks. Maine is a big state and conditions are vastly different throughout the state with some roads still snow covered and others very soft and muddy. Do not drive on muddy/snow covered roads, you risk damage to your vehicle, self and the road. While Maine Public Lands technically do not close, access is limited at this time.
