Richardson, Umbagog Lake Area Guide

The Richardson Lake area consists of Upper and Lower Richardson Lake, which extends approximately 17 miles in length. The crystal clear water supports a wide variety of water birds including loons, ducks, geese, hawks, and eagles.

Richardson Lake, MaineThese lakes are also home to many islands, some small and some large. The waterfront areas consist of rocky shorelines and sandy beaches where the visitor may set up camp and enjoy the wilderness. Boating of all types, motorboats, canoes, sailboats, kayaks, etc. is very popular as well. Fishing is a popular pastime and the lake boasts trout, salmon, and bass to name a few.

Surprsingly, the nineteen-mile long Richardson Lakes are the only bodies of water in the Rangeley Lakes Region to hold lake trout (called togue in Maine).

Northern Forest Canoe Trail

The Richardson and Mooselookmeguntic Lakes are actually part of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, the historic 740-mile water trail that traverses New York, Vermont, Quebec, New Hampshire, and Maine. It is quite possible that the visitor will also be treated with a glimpse of moose or deer in their natural habitat. The scenery is spectacular, as is the atmosphere!

Nearby Wilderness

Umbagog Lake is a wilderness lake located in Coös County, New Hampshire and Oxford County, Maine. One of the most pleasurable features of the Umbagog area in the Fall is the fantastic foliage provided free from nature's paint palette.

The 7,768 acre lake is part of the Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge and a New Hampshire state park. Along its southernmost shore, there is a public campground and a public boat launch ramp which may be accessed from New Hampshire Route 26. There are 26 wilderness campsites, accessible only by boat, which are located around the lake. 

An interesting feature along its northwest shore is an expansive natural floating island composed of generations of decomposing marshland vegetation. The area is abundant with wildlife, including coyote, wild turkey, bald eagle, osprey, bobcat, rabbit, bear and of course moose.

Throughout the area there are many personally owned camps and lodges available on a rental basis.
