Mattawamkeag Wilderness Park Campground

Bangor Daily News - Bangor,ME,USA
The first thing that hits you as you drive down the road to Mattawamkeag Wilderness Park Campground is the remoteness. The park sits at the end of an almost eight-mile-long, narrow, winding dirt road. Driving it Saturday in the pouring rain, it felt like the closer I got to the campground the more distance I put between me and the rest of the world.

The town of Mattawamkeag owns the park and campground. Walking past the sites I noticed the effort that Doris and Pete put into keeping the place neat and clean. As town employees they are responsible for maintaining the road in, and the campground property of 250 acres. The entire park is 1,000 acres and has 15 miles of hiking, ATV and mountain biking trails.

The sites have thick growths of trees between them and all have picnic tables and fire rings. Some are full service with electricity and water hookups. Some are tents only. There’s a recreation hall, playground, covered barbecue pavilion, hot showers and a laundromat.
