Camping in the Rangeley Lakes Region

Stephen Phillips Preserve

Campsite at the Phillips Preserve Wilderness Campground on Mooselookmeguntic Lake.


The Rangeley Lakes Region offers all types of camping possibilities…from drive-up, full-facility campgrounds to remote back-country locations reached by backpacking or paddling in the summer and snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or snowmobiling in the winter.

Full service, public and private campgrounds are located on Aziscohos, Cupsuptic, Webb, Mooselookmeguntic and Rangeley Lakes, and on the Magalloway River in the Aziscoos Valley.

More remote walk-in sites sites are located on Mooselookmeguntic and Aziscoos Lakes, the Cupsuptic and Dead Rivers, and on the small ponds on Saddleback Mountain. The shores of Aziscohos, Cupsuptic and Mooselookmeguntic Lakes offer a number of water-access sites reached only by boat or paddling. Fire permits are required for all back-country campsites. For a fire permit, call Augusta: 207-289-2275. For those hiking the nearby Appalachian Trail, two sites, Piazza Rock and Sabbathday Pond are available. Both locations offer lean-to shelters available on a first-come basis. For those unfamiliar with the regions’ remote areas, the services or advice of a Registered Maine Guide can be invaluable!

Loved the camp ground, we came by float plane and enjoyed the entire three days, going again this weekend to see Gregg Allman band. One thing we will be bringing is a saw to cut with for a nice camp fire.
