Northern Pride Lodge – Kokadjo, ME
This place was an experience almost beyond words. As a campground, facilities are very limited. There is only 15amp electric with no water or sewer. For a fee, you can run a garden hose to fill your tank. or come in full. There are only two transient sites, the rest are seasonal, but the lodge is fantastic. They also have several grassy tent sites on the shore.
Northern Pride Lodge sits about 30 minutes north of Greenville and Moosehead Lake. Baxter State Park is a short distance to the North, but don’t let distance fool you. The pavement ends just North of the Lodge and the trip to Baxter is completed on dirt roads owned by a lumber company. The grounds are well cared for and the Lake is beautiful. A short walk away is the “village” of Kokadjo, (pop. Not Many). Here you will find the General Store, Diner, Tavern, Video Rental, and Souvineer shop, all in one building.The Lodge specializes in Hunting and Fishing expeditions, with room and meals included. On our first night there, a hunter returned with a Black Bear. During our stay, we saw Eagles, Deer, Moose, and Loons on every day trip. It was a wildlife viewer’s paradise. The sunsets and rises were always fantastic.
For the Hunter, Fisherman, and Hiker, you could not ask for a better place to be. For a family vacation, not such a great idea. There is very little for children to do in the immediate area. We loved the extreme isolation from the real world, and a change of pace from traditional RV Parks.
