Peaks-Kenny State Park

Peaks-Kenny State Park lies on the shores of Sebec Lake, offering day visitors and campers a peaceful, wooded setting in which to enjoy boating, fishing, swimming, hiking and picnicking. With 56 sites set among stately trees and large glacial boulders near the lake, the campground fosters quiet and private enjoyment of a beautiful natural setting. The 839-acre park lies in the Central Maine Highlands, an area renowned for its natural beauty and outdoor opportunities with Moosehead Lake, the Appalachian Trail, the southern end of Baxter State Park and other outdoor destinations all within a morning's drive.

The Park encompasses more than a mile of shoreline along Sebec Lake. A sandy swimming beach, staffed by a lifeguard in summer, offers lovely views across Sebec Lake to Borestone Mountain, a 1600-acre nature sanctuary with a summit trail (see Nearby Destinations). A grassy picnic area with playground adjoins the beach, providing picnic tables and barbecue grills enjoyed by both camping parties and day visitors. The camping area, a five-minute walk from the beach, has many glacial boulders that children camping at the park enjoy climbing.

The clean and deep waters of Sebec Lake, which stretches 10 miles in length, make it an appealing destination for wildlife watchers and those seeking cold-water fish like landlocked salmon and lake trout (togue). Campers can bring canoes or rent ones on site. Those with trailered boats can launch at a public ramp two miles from the campground (at Greeley's Landing where Route 153 ends at Sebec Lake).

Ten miles of gentle hiking trails within the park offer visitors of all ages and skill levels a chance to enjoy old-growth hardwood forests, hemlock and pines. For more challenging terrain nearby, see the Nearby Destinations section.
