Chamberlain Lake is a group of parcels abutting the large lakes that form the south end of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. The total area is 9,557 acres. Canoeists from the waterway follow the hiking trails to the tops of two low mountains and enjoy fine views of the lakes and forests.

This beautiful remote area is a haven for canoeists, kayakers and hikers. Viewing scenery is unsurpassed. Moose, bear, deer and other mammals thrive in these wet woodlands. Several maintained forest campsites may be found on Farm Island located on Eagle Lake and the eastern shore of Chamberlain Lake by Lock Dam. This is accessible from an unmarked dirt road that travels west off Telos Road about a quarter mile beyond Little Leadbetter Pond. This unmarked road bypasses the northern edge of Indian Pond that offers a maintained forest campsite as well along with a small boat launch. Explorers will find an entrance gate marking the eastern edge of Public Reserved Land. Hunting and trapping are allowed, subject to certain rules and regulations. Call 207-287-3821 for specific policies and laws regarding these activities.
