A great Maine lake to spend some free time or vacation on. This lake offers all-season recreational options. It can be a bit busy during summer weekends, but it's not over-crowded. Check it out and have some fun!

The beach area is decent but no sand. The bottom is soft and muddy so you don't have to worry about walking on loose rocks. Not my first choice in beaches but a good area for beginner swimmers. Beautiful mountain views and wildlife.

I was there visiting in mid August. It was just the right time to enjoy floating on the Lake for a Camden evening concert. Additionally, check out the summer schedule for the Camden orchestra.

If you are in the area of Camden, Maine, take some time to rent a kayak and play on this beautiful lake. In July, it is hot in Maine, and the lake is very pleasant. Swim off the giant rocks, and enjoy the pebbly bottom...More

Lake Megunticook is a quiet and peaceful gem of a small lake. No marinas or gas stations, just a laid back and beautiful place to fish or swim. Somewhat of a hideaway that is very close to picturesque Town of Camden, Maine.
