The Historic Eagle Lake Sporting Camps
Start your tradition of memorable visits to the historic Eagle Lake Sporting Camps. Awaken to the "dawn chorus" when male birds began to sing, quietly at first, then loud and hard; and, soon every bird in earshot is singing simultaneously. You are the audience, your theater is a lakeside verandah. You are in Northern Maine an unsurpassed destination for birders and wildlife photographers.
But that's not all! Experience the world class May salmon fishing, late-summer trophy bear hunting; fall moose, grouse, goose, and duck hunting. Join a nature tour or guided hunt at the lodge of OMM Outfitters, Maine's only Cabela's World's Foremost Destination.
Twenty mile long Eagle Lake, is one of the famous Fish River chain of lakes that stretches, in northern Maine, sixty miles through beautiful forest almost to the Canadian border, surpassing in primeval beauty and grandeur many of the better known woodlands and lakes of Maine.
Established in 1889, the Eagle Lake Sporting Camps are located on a peninsula seven miles up the Lake from Eagle Lake Village at the outlet of Square Lake thoroughfare and in the midst of a 23,000 acre wilderness reserve. They are on a high knoll among beautiful white birches, facing the lake in a southwesterly direction. The view is magnificent; lake and forest blend; ridge upon ridge looms up, until finally Three Brooks Mountain caps in the distance.
Seven year-round log cabins accommodate from two to ten persons, up to forty guests. The cabins have gas lights and heat and each has a private bathroom. An additional six cabins are for three season use with shared toilet and shower facilities. All the cabins are on the frontage facing the lake, and each has a broad verandah. Several of them are especially suited for large groups and clubs. For fine dining, the legendary Roosevelt Dining Room seats thirty. The Rough Rider Tavern has a large field stone fireplace, regulation pool table, and game room.
Our guests may arrive by four-wheel drive, boat, snowmobile and float plane. We can arrange charter flights from eastern cities to get you here in a matter of hours. A 1 1/2 hour flight from Boston will get you to within 45 miles, and we'll meet your flight. Three scheduled flights a day!
