Umbagog Magalloway remote campsites

 

We have two remote campsites. The first, Cedar Stump, is at the outlet of the Rapid River accessed from Lake Umbagog about eight miles from the Errol Dam. Cedar Stump has six campsites at the base of the rapids. Five sites are on river right and one on river left. The area is one of the most beautiful spots in Western Maine. Read about living on the Rapid River in Louise Dickinson Rich’s Book “We Took to the Woods”, set in the 1930’s when Louise and husband Ralph, her friend and hired help Gerrish, lived in a remote cabin near Lake Umbagog. It was described as “a witty account of a Thoreau-like existence in a wilderness home.” The cabins are still there and run as a fly fishing camp by Aldro French.

 

The second, is the Diamond Peak campsite located of the Magalloway River. The access for this camp is the Wilson Mills put-in on rt.16. The camp is approximately eight miles from the bridge over the Magalloway and another eight miles to the lake. The DP sites are next to the river and a great place for wildlife viewing, fishing, and flatwater paddling.
