Description

Located in the scenic Rangeley Lakes Region of western Maine, the 22,000-acre Richardson Unit includes 21 miles of shoreline on Richardson and Mooselookmeguntic Lakes, as well as frontage on several small ponds. Covering 1,900 acres, the Bald Mountain Unit offers views of the surrounding mountains and lakes. The big lakes and small ponds, bounded by hardwood ridges and softwood flats, attract those who enjoy boating, fishing, hiking, and camping in a remote setting near the mountains.

Richardson and Mooselookmeguntic Lakes are part of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. The Northern Forest Canoe Trail is an historic 740-mile watertrail through New York, Vermont, Quebec, New Hampshire, and Maine.
