Where to do Photography in Maine
Baxter State Park is a large wilderness area permanently preserved as a state park, located in Piscataquis County in north-central Maine. It is in the North Maine Woods region.
The park was established by 28 donations of land, in trust, from Park donor Percival P. Baxter between 1931 and 1962, eventually creating a park of over 200,000 acres in size. Baxter Park is not part of the Maine State Park system. Sole governance is provided by the Baxter State Park Authority, consisting of the Maine Attorney General, the Maine Commissioner of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, and the Director of the Maine Forest Service.
The park is independently funded through a combination of revenues from trusts, user fees, and the sale of forest products from the park’s Scientific Forest Management Area. The park is home to the state’s highest peak, Mount Katahdin. The number of visitors to the park declined from 75,000 in 2000 to 55,000 in 2005, but since 2005 visitor use has been slowly increasing.

There are summer and outdoor winter activities At New England Outdoor Center. We took the moose tour. We were taken deep into the areas of the lake by boat where the moose are known to gather. Of course, we saw moose even though it was the hottest day of the year. It was a great boat ride, and we all got some great shots.
