About the Town of Rangeley, Maine



        Located in an area consisting of 99% forest and water, lies Maine's western mountains and the six Rangeley Lakes. An ideal vacation destination for every season, this resort area offers a multitude of activities for both young and old.

         Spring ushers in the fishing season with trophy-sized Salmon and Brook Trout, along with abundant wildlife and wildflowers. Summer offers almost every sport imaginable, from 18 hole golf to all types of water sports. Scenic highways and hiking trails, including the Appalachian Trail, lead to panoramic overlooks and sight-seeing flights offer unparalled views during the summertime. September welcomes the autumn season with some of the most beautiful fall foliage in the country, while bountiful game including moose, deer and upland birds beckon the advent of the hunting season. By November, snow blankets the region, signaling the start to alpine ski season and the opening of Rangeley's Saddleback Ski area. Groomed village and mountain nordic paths and snowmobile trails are open by December, offering snowmobilers some of the best riding in the Northeast.

          The towns of Rangeley and Oquossoc both offer a varied array of accommodations, including inns, motels, cottages, townhouses, B & Bs, sporting camps and campgrounds. Restaurants feature everything from pizza to lobster, while delis serve up all the essentials for a picnic in the great outdoors. Shops provide the visitor with all the necessities needed for their vacation, in addition to a wonderful selection of sporting goods and gifts. Civic, religious and other groups meet frequently and welcome guests, while the town and other organizations offer a varied selection of cultural events.

         The area can be reached over highways or directly by charter air service. Or, fly into Portland or Bangor and drive the two and a half hour trip to Rangeley. Upon your arrival, stop by the Rangeley Lakes Region Chamber of Commerce at Lakeside Park, just off Main Street for any further information or please call 1-800-MT-LAKES.
