Suiting Up for Supper

Let's start by saying we had a great time here at Big Wilson Camp. Spending time with family hiking, quadding, swimming and just relaxing on the deck at the end of a busy day.

We found out that all the people we met here in Maine on our daily adventures were so friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. Unfortunately, we had some car trouble on our trip here that needed to be fixed before our ride home. If anyone needs car maintenance while here on vacation, go to Mike's Automotive in Dexter, ME. He was so friendly, very knowledgeable, and accommodating.

We hiked Borestone Mountain and from experience, we wouldn't suggest anyone under the age of 10 to make the trek. The final approach to the summit was very steep and not for someone with a fear of heights. Lakeshore restaurant in Dexter was an awesome place to eat - lots of food & yummy, too. Also, not to be mistaken with the first, there is also Lakeshore Pub & Grub, right in Monson - nine miles away - that has great food & hometown hospitality. Wear your bathing suits, too, because you could swim in the lake and slide & trampoline while you waited for food. Kids LOVED it! So much to say, so much to do! All-in-all, GREAT time!.

Vacationing from Nantuckett

We had a great time here at Big Wilson Camp. We enjoyed the fire pit, views & the house itself.

We did enjoy swimming in Lake Onawa & Moosehead Lake. As for Moosehead, we went to two different places: Lily Bay State Park one day, and on another, a few of us took the boat over to Mount Kineo & hiked to Pebble Beach. Both were enjoyable & refreshing.

As for hiking, we loved Borestone Mountain, Little Wilson Falls & the Gulf Hagas. Three of us did the Gulf Hagas, because we were originally worried about how long it was, but then we found out you could do shorter loops. Well worth it, and the views were breathtaking.

We saw five fox, four moose, too many squirrels & chipmunks and one bat. All & all a fantastic week.

'Best Place to See Moose'

Had a wonderful time here at Big Wilson Camp. We hiked up to Borestone Mountain and Big Wilson Falls. We spent one day whitewater rafting on the Kennebec River, which was a lot of fun.

In the evenings we would go on our own moose safaris. We saw six moose, five fox, countless deer, and one black bear. We have found the best place to see moose is to drive up to the town of Kokadjo around 9 pm, then drive slow back to Greenville.

We spent time in Greenville and found the people to be very nice and warm to out-of-towners. We took the cruise on the Katahdin - well worth the time.
