Visit Maine this summer for some of the best  wilderness canoeing in North America. The St. Croix River is one of Maine’s finest canoe & kayak trips known for its moderate whitewater and can be paddled all summer long. Other Maine destinations known for their scenic and recreational value- as well as their wilderness and wildlife- include the Allagash and Penobscot Rivers. Trips can be day tours, weekend getaways or longer. Canoe trips are a great way to rest, relax, explore and spend quality time with friends and family. Swim, fishing, view wildlife, photography, cook over an open fire and learn a new skill. Laugh around the campfire, star gaze and listen to the sounds of loons. Back country canoeing and camping has a way of bringing the best out of everyone. Choose the northeast for your next family vacation or group outing on a canoe camping trip and discover Maine as a top destination for wilderness adventure.

Four new campsites have been completed along 33 miles of stream between the White Farm Road in Kossuth to Bancroft. Ten East Grand students and three adults volunteered their time to build these new campsites. This is the third season of work being done on the waterway. During the fall of 2011, boat loads of trash were removed from eight Baskahegan Lake campsites. During the summer of 2012, eight lake campsites were upgraded with new picnic tables, signs, outboxes and improved fire pits. Summer long maintenance was done on these sites and at the landing in Brookton. This summer (2013) four new campsites where completed on the Baskahegan Stream. These campsites are on private property owned by the Baskahegan Company of Brookton, open to the public providing fire permits are obtained prior to building camp fires and users leave the campsite cleaner then they found them. Local East Grand students have gained an appreciation for the waters and lands in their ‘back yard’ and learned the importance of taking proper care of these campsites as they have take ownership in this project. These new campsites and maintenance were made possible by  grants from First Wind and funding allocated through the Washington County Unorganized Territories Grant Fund for economic development which was set up by the Washington County Government, First Wind and the State of Maine. For more information about these campsites, contact project coordinator Dave Conley of www.canoethewild.com at 207-551-8729, email dave@canoethewild.com

200 mile Mountain River Canoe Trip, July 7-21, 2013 beginning at Norseman Lake and ending on the Mackenzie River, 14 days, lots of whitewater, Caribou sightings, numerous hikes and great times with friends! Spray skirts were a must! We did the trip at medium water and you had to pay attention all the time to avoid being caught off guard in a hole, boil or ending up in a channel you didn’t intend to take. Great scenery and temps ranged from below freezing at night to 80 degrees during the day while another day we had wind and spitting snow! Check out more of Dave’s trips at www.canoethewild.com
