Lunksoos Camps, a rustic, historic camp located on the East Branch of the Penobscot River, just north of Staceyville, ME is the site of the Women’s Voices’ Celebrate the Wild, WritingNature workshop in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act.

Thoreau explored Lunksoos on his 1857 canoe trip, his third visit to the Katahdin Region. And in 1920 , Maine Gov. Percival P. Baxter camped at Lunksoos the night before his first ascent of Katahdin.
