Located in an area consisting of 99% forest and water, lies Maine’s western mountains and the six Rangeley Lakes. The Town of Rangeley, Oquossoc Village, Dallas Plantation, Rangeley Plantation and Sandy River Plantation comprise the regions settlements. Historically known as a fisherman’s paradise, Rangeley’s year ’round population of approximately 1,500+ inhabitants swells to almost 10,000 during the popular summer tourist season.

Spring ushers in the fishing season with trophy-sized Salmon and Brook Trout, along with abundant wildlife and wildflowers. Summer offers almost every sport imaginable, from 18 hole golf to all types of water sports. Scenic highways and hiking trails, including the Appalachian Trail, lead to panoramic overlooks and sight-seeing flights offer unparalled views during the summertime. September welcomes the Autumn season with some of the most beautiful fall foliage in the country, while bountiful game including moose, deer and upland birds beckon the advent of the hunting season. By November, snow blankets the region, signaling the start to alpine ski season and the opening of Rangeley’s Saddleback Ski area. Groomed village and mountain nordic paths and snowmobile trails are open by December, offering snowmobilers some of the best riding in the Northeast.
