Porter Point Camps on Nicatous Lake

A Maine Tradition Since 1925.

Porter Point Camps is located deep in the Maine woods (TWP 3, N-D , Unorganized Territory) on the shore of beautiful Nicatous Lake. Fish for Landlocked Salmon, Brown Trout, Smallmouth Bass, and White Perch, hike the virtually limitless woods trails and enjoy the wildlife: moose, deer, bear, fox, bald eagles, loons, beaver, etc. Hunt deer, bear, and moose right from camp or just have  a peaceful family vacation hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, or swimming from the camp dock or on one of Nicatous' beautiful sand beaches. When winter comes, there is plenty of ice fishing, snow shoeing, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. We're on the ITS, so you can get there from here!

Porter Point Camps has served sportsmen and women for over 75 years. The camps are well-maintained, combining the charm of the traditional Maine camp with modern conveniences. We generate our own power for running water. All of the camps are comfortably set up for housekeeping with linens, hot water, gas stoves and refrigerators, gas lights, and pots, pans and dishes. Just bring your toothbrush and towels!

We offer a wide variety of camp amenities. There are outboard motor boats, kayaks, and canoes for rent, and we have our own boat ramp if you prefer to bring your own boat. All watercraft rentals include life preservers.

Open Year Round

All seasons offer limitless hiking. In the winter there are miles to snowshoe/cross country ski trails. You can also enjoy snowmobiling to Canada on the ITS that runs a short distance from the camps. There is plenty of wildlife to see. Moose, deer, beaver and eagles can often be seen from the camp property. The warmer seasons offer moderately strenuous mountain biking along the older logging trails or easier excursions on graded, gravel roads. Or you can just relax in the sun and listen to the loons on the lakeside lawn.

Hunting is another popular sport at Nicatous Lake. Deer, moose and bear are the hunter's choice at the lake. Camps are equipped for even the coldest hunting season.
