Allagash Lake and Johnson Pond Professional Review and Guide
"Allagash Lake is at the top of our list, one of our very favorite lakes in Maine. It is a large lake, subject to heavy winds, but the lake geometry prevents waves from building up as much as they do on some other large lakes in the region. And wind does not affect the large number of protected areas on the lake.
There are several reasons Allagash Lake is so great. It is beautiful, of course: nestled beneath Allagash and Poland mountains, lined with moss-covered rocks, marshy inlets, and—everywhere—deep, wild forest. But Allagash is also special because you will not hear the putt-putt of motors, you will not see or hear automobiles, you will not even see float planes landing here. Allagash Lake is the only body of water in Maine to exclude all motors (even electric motors). Prominent fish species: brook trout and lake trout."
