Northern Outdoors - Katahdin Adventure Base Camp

Northern Outdoors' base for outdoor adventures in the Millinocket region features a beautiful wilderness campground, and lakefront cabins along Millincoket and Ambajejus Lakes. Situated along the Penobscot River with incredible views of Mount Katahdin, the campground features riverside sites and rustic bunkhouses, just steps away from the Appalachian Trail and the check-in for rafting on the Penobscot River. Our base for Penobscot River rafting is at the Big Moose Inn, with Inn rooms and suites, lakeside cabins, campground and RV sites, two on-site restaurants, and tons of activities to keep you having fun for an extended vaca!

All lodging is located next to the Penobscot River, with class IV+ whitewater rafting including the infamous Exterminator, the Cribworks, and the 12' waterfall: Nesowadnehunk Falls. Spend some time hiking in Baxter State Park, or rent a kayak or SUP to explore Millincoket Lake!
