Many people think of Maine in terms of the coastline alone, but the vast interior of the state contains a multitude of crystal clear lakes, several mountain ranges, and more untroubled wilderness than the rest of New England put together.
Vacationers can enjoy this part of Maine year-round, with water sports, fishing, and hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter. Families find that camping by lakes and mountains makes vacations affordable and memorable. Major lake regions include those around Sebago Lake, the Rangeley Lakes, Moosehead Lake, and the Allagash Wilderness Waterway.
