Wilsons on Moosehead Lake reporting: So much to report!  There are many exciting things going on here at Wilsons Cabins on Moosehead Lake. We have expanded and the East Outlet Guide & Fly Shop has been a great compliment to the office. Now selling flies, leaders, clothing, coffee, snacks and more, along with gas & oil for boats and ATVs! We are also here to offer assistance for those who need a little helping hand.  Come check it out!lawn sign.jpg

Wi-Fi update!!!! We have a broadband system offering wireless Internet to our guests and all of the cabins.  We upgraded the system, so it now reaches everyone staying here and is password protected!   We also have set up more cabins with satellite TVs.  The year round cabins (excluding our 2 smallest) now ALL have TV!  Never thought it would be that popular here in the North Maine Woods, but it has become that way…so we aim to please!


The docks are a perfect place to sit, enjoy the beautiful scenery, or wet a line.  We have added a couple of hammocks around the property, and the one on the docks is popular! Folks are enjoying swimming, boating, canoeing and kayaking, and watching all the amazing animals as they show off their young.  The hiking has been great, with perfect temperatures to enjoy outdoor activities. We've been blessed with some of the most amazing sunrises. Our webcams have been very popular, especially for those non-morning people who can check in and see what they missed.  We so enjoy seeing all of our summer friends!   

Attention Fishermen

Make your reservations now so you don’t miss the chance of a lifetime! We are now offering a new trip to our two rafts.jpgvenue: A great bass fishing adventure, go where few others have gone! We have unlocked a location that is producing LOTS of big fish, while seeing some amazing views and wildlife on your journey. We've also added another boat to our guide fleet to accommodate larger fishing groups!
