Chewonki Campground

Chewonki’s rental cabins, on Fourth Debsconeag Lake, are situated in the heart of Maine’s North Woods on an exquisite chain of lakes and ponds that are permanently protected as an ecological reserve.

This is a great setting for a family getaway or a family reunion. The rustic cabins—colloquially called “camps”—date back to the early 1900s and provide the perfect setting for you to enjoy the charm and beauty of this pristine wilderness. Our small cluster of cabins and yurts sit at the base of magnificent granite cliffs that rise 800 feet from the lake, surrounded by a mature forest of pine, spruce, hemlock, maple, and oak. These are the only buildings on this entirely protected shoreline, where visitors find privacy, abundant wildlife, and endless opportunities for exploration.

Hiking options are abundant. Explore the forest and granite ledges or follow the nearby Waterfall Trail leading to Fifth Debsconeag and other nearby ponds. Climb the Cliff Trail for panoramic views of Baxter State Park and the Debsconeag Wilderness Region, or venture a little farther to join the nearby Appalachian Trail.

Fourth Debsconeag Lake and nearby Nahmakanta Stream offer wonderful fishing for togue, salmon, and native brook trout. Swim in the pristine lake and sunbathe on our new dock and swim float. Spend an afternoon exploring the lake by canoe, or plan an overnight or extended trip on the adjacent chain of lakes. We can equip you with maps, gear, and directions to get you on your way!chewonki_newlogo_debsconeag
