North Maine Woods, Inc

For canoeists traveling the northern end of the trail, from Moosehead Lake to Fort Kent, the trail crosses both private forest land and State of Maine owned parks and corridors. For this region, Land Use and Camping Permits and fees are required. To streamline the process of obtaining permission and permits, and through cooperation with the State of Maine, North Maine Woods Inc. has agreed to offer on line registration for all properties along the roughly 300 mile trip. Please send your draft itinerary of overnight camping locations, along with expected dates, to, and you will receive a response indicating the total fees which you may pay by telephone, plus receive an email message indicating you are registered for all overnight locations.
