Bosebuck Mountain Camps
Say hello to owners Wendy and Mike. Want to catch brook trout and landlocked
salmon while staying in the remote backcountry of Western Maine? This is the place.
On the same lake where Bob and Trish have spent their summers
for the last twenty-eight years.
Stay with Whit and Maureen while you explore the wilderness along the Rapid River.
Not much has changed here since Louise Dickinson Rich wrote her books while living
just up the road from this traditional sporting camp.
Grants Kennebago Camps
Fly fish Big Kennebago Lake from a Rangeley boat or wade the Kennebago River for landlocked
salmon measured in pounds rather than inches.
Sturtevant Pond Camps
Although located in New Hampshire, these house keeping cabins are located on the edge
of the Rangeley Lakes Region and so are included here. Former owner of Bosebuck Camps
and well-known guide, Tom Rideout, introduced Trish and I to the region back in the 1970s.
He and Martha Rideout provide affordable cabins that boast some of the best bass fishing in
eastern New Hampshire with wild brook trout a short hike away. Tom and Martha also cater
to hunters. Tell them Bob and Trish say hello! http://sturtevantpondcamps.com
Kennebago River Kamps
Located on the Kennebago River between Big Kennebago Lake and Little Kennebago Lake,
these cabins are an economical alternative to the more expensive traditional sporting camps.
Run by Reggie Hammond, one of the region’s long-time wardens, and his family, these house
keeping cabins provide access to quality fishing for landlocked salmon and native brook trout.
