West Branch Pond Camps

Join the original 100-Mile Wilderness Campaign partners to celebrate and enjoy the rich natural bounty of this true Maine wilderness.  You will be transported back in time as you take in the beauty, peace and wildlife activity from a canoe or kayak or the porch of your 4th generation owned cabin by the shore of West Branch Pond. Sit around the camp stove in the evening with conservation leaders from the Baldacci Administration, Maine Sierra Club's wilderness team, local sporting camp owners and guides/storytellers - maybe even a few of the original funders of this historic collaborative conservation effort. Check the camp out on the web.
