More Information
Unique to Maine, and part of a 50-year tradition, Maine sporting camps are typically centered around a central dining lodge serving home-cooked meals, with individual rental cabins set along a lakeshore. Many camps have been run by the same family for generations, and loyal guests return year after year. Some camps are easily accessible and offer a full range of outdoor activities for families; others are deep in the woods and ideal for a fishing or hunting retreat. This fascinating guide is the only resource desribing WHERE to find these unique wilderness getaways. This guide, full of factual details and stories, is a much-needed resource on these increasingly popular wilderness hideaways.

Activities available at the sporting camps include fishing, hunting, boating, hiking, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, birding, and moose-watching. Hearty home-cooked meals and cozy cabins make hanging around camp just as appealing as exploring the wilds. Many of the camps are open year-round.

Alice Arlen's comprehensive guide describes how to get there, what to bring, when to go, rates, and a description of the facilities and accommodations. The author's interviews with sporting camp owners and selected recipes from camp kitchens round out this unique portrait of a rare and beloved way of life.

Will appeal to traditional hunters and fishers as well as to urban travelers in search of a unique, rustic vacation getaway.
