Relaxing Vistas: Our resort property has a large lakefront with beautiful vistas of Mount Katahdin, Maine's Highest mountain. Find your spot in a wooden Adirondack chair on The Point- enjoy a refreshing summer breeze, wake up early and bring your coffee down to the water to enjoy the sunrise. Additionally, our resort has fire pits down by The Point so you can enjoy your evenings roasting marshmallows and taking in the spectacular night sky.
Dining: The River Drivers Restaurant is right onsite with great food. In the summer you will see vegetables used for the restaurant growing in the garden beds on property, and when possible, we source produce from local and in-state suppliers.

Fishing and Canoeing/Kayaking are some of the many things that you can do on-site here at NEOC. Even though the Millinocket area offers a lifetime of adventures, quite often it's nice to stay onsite, walk from your cabin, hop in a Canoe or Kayak, and go fishing! *Must have Maine State Fishing License!
Standup Paddleboarding: Paddleboards are available right onsite at NEOC. Options for renting are: 1/2 day or by the hour. Paddleboarding is an extremely fun way to discover Millinocket Lake! Kids love it as well! (Remember you will all need to pack life jackets). Glide across the lake and skirt around islands. Take note of the weather before you leave and please ALWAYS let someone know where you are going.
Hiking: There are hiking trails onsite and hundreds of miles of hiking trails in the Katahdin Region. Pick from the classic day hikes up Maine’s highest mountain--Mount Katahdin, or one of the other wonderful mountains in Baxter State Park. The Appalachian Trail, The International AT, the Debsconeag Lakes Wilderness Area, Nahmakanta Public Reserve, and Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument offer plenty of other choices in the area.

Ice-fishing: This is the stuff memories are made of. Millinocket Lake has several species of fish in it. In the picture is a landlocked Salmon! A tremendous catch. We have fishing guides who have all the gear available for setting up your ice-fishing trip. You will head out on the lake in front of the resort, and it may involve the use of an ice shack - to keep warm and for refreshments. Find more information here

Snowshoeing: We can't think of many better ways to spend time than by spending it outside and snowshoeing! The use of our snowshoes is included with your stay with us here in the wintertime. You can snowshoe right from your cabin to wherever you choose to go - follow our trails that wind through the woods and enjoy beautiful pine trees and nature at its best.
