Scraggly Lake (Northern) Professional Review and Guide

"Scraggly Lake lies just northeast of Baxter State Park in northern Maine, entirely within a 10,000-acre tract of land owned and managed by the Maine Bureau of Public Lands. Because of public ownership, the land is managed not only for timber, but also for wildlife, important plant communities including several tracts of old-growth forest, and recreational opportunities.

By almost any standards, Scraggly Lake is a treasure. The 842-acre lake is crystal clear, with a highly varied shoreline. In fact, the deep coves and the long, sinewy inlet to the southwest provide more than twelve miles of shoreline to explore, along with dozens of islands. In late spring and early summer, however, use care if exploring around the shoreline—and especially islands—because five loon nesting sites have been identified."
