Boating on Moosehead Lake

Moosehead Lake is the epicenter of Maine’s expansive watershed. The surrounding ponds, streams, and rivers provide the boater, canoeist, rafter, and kayaker with unlimited opportunities for water-based adventures. Once out on the water, you’ll experience miles of pristine shoreline, island, and shore beaches, picnicking, and overnight camping at several sites all around the lake.

In a typical year, the best time for water activities is from Memorial Day through early September. The lake levels are full at the beginning of the season, with the annual drawdown commencing in mid-August. By late fall, because the lake is controlled by a dam it is usually down by at least three feet. Caution is advised in shallow bays and coves. The lake is marked with hazard buoys, beginning 200 feet from shore. By late fall, the lake is usually down by at least three feet.

Boat Docking

The Moosehead Lake Region Economic Development has installed 8 boat slips in the East Cove of Moosehead Lake in Greenville at the Crafts Landing and Park. Seven of these boat slips are open to the public free of charge. They lease one boat slip each year for $1,800/season to help cover putting in and taking out the docks. There is a requested 4-hour time limit and overnight docking is not permitted.
If you’re interested in the leasing opportunity for the next season, please contact Margarita Contreni at [email protected] or 480 Moosehead Lake Rd, Greenville, ME 04441
