Upper West Branch & Lobster Lake Area, Katahdin Outfitters
The Upper West Branch of the Penobscot River and the Lobster Lake area offer pleasant canoeing and camping experiences. Canoeing groups usually put in at Roll Dam Campsite, Penosbcot Farm or Lobster trip. It is a leisurely 3 day trip to Umbazooksus Stream or 5 to 7 day trip to take out at the former site of Chesuncook Dam. Paddlers encounter quick water only from Big Island to Little Ragmuff and ( at very low water ) Rocky Rips. Lobster Lake is a popular camping spot for Canoeing and fishing groups. Groups using Lobster should be aware that high winds can cause dangerous waves. You may click here to view campsite locations around Lobster Lake.
