About half of Grand Lake Matagamon lies within the boundaries of Baxter State Park. Although the park allows motors here and on Webster Lake, these bodies of water are protected from development. With 6.5 square miles of water, coupled with its remoteness, Grand Lake Matagamon provides a large measure of solitude and will take two or more days to explore fully. Grand Lake Matagamon is wild and beautiful, filled with forested islands and boulders appropriate for picnicking, swimming, and sunning. Wildlife abounds, and solitude awaits those who would explore the marshy coves and inlets. Combined with the extensive hiking-trail system of Baxter State Park, the lake offers the opportunity for an exciting and varied vacation. Prominent fish species: salmon, lake trout, and yellow perch.
