More Land For Baxter State Park - Another Reason To Say No To A National Park

  "  A 143-acre tract of land with an iconic, lakefront view of Mount Katahdin and a rich history is being donated to Baxter State Park today by Huber Resources Corp., a timber management company based in Old Town. " -courtesy of The Portland Press Herald

This just makes Baxter State Park an even more special place. Presently I am in planning mode for some early spring fishing at the park.. will keep my blog updated as my plans progress but if anyone out there has first hand experience with fly fishing at Baxter I would appreciate some input...

And in my mind, this just enhances my view that Maine is in no need of a national park. 


  1. I've got to visit that place someday.

  2. You wouldn't regret it Brk Trt..even if it is a long haul from home...

  3. I was standing in the hall of flags at the state house when the Huber family signed the land over to the state of Maine. Was a great ceremony.

    1. Rabid..Awesome piece of property and I can't wait to explore it a little...
