The history of Aroostook County is rooted in its vast natural resources. The great wilderness area of western Aroostook comprises two-thirds of the county. Eastern portions of Aroostook County are dominated by wide open spaces of farmland that produce potatoes, broccoli and peas, among other crops.
Aroostook County also serves as an outstanding recreation area with more than 2,000 lakes, streams, rivers, and ponds covering some 80,000 acres. Camping, canoeing, fishing, hunting are popular spring, summer, and fall activities. Winter is filled with ice fishing, skating, skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling, among other activities.
