Willard Jalbert Camps

The traditional Maine sporting camp experience is alive and well at Willard Jalbert Camps on Round Pond, Township 13 Range 12. The state of Maine purchased the camps and the rest of the land along the 92-mile-long waterway in 1966-67. The camps then were leased back to the owner and builder of the camps, Willard Jalbert Sr., who often is referred to as simply “The Old Guide.” Willard built the first camp at Windy Point in 1941. The camps have been in the Jalbert family ever since.

Nestled on Windy Point—a two-acre peninsula jutting out into Round Pond—the camps are accessible only by boat or floatplane. A half dozen buildings, including a cookhouse with dining area, three bunkhouses and even a wood-fired sauna and rustic hot tub, are nestled among the spruce and fir.

The Willard Jalbert Camps are a great place to stay overnight on an Allagash canoe trip or just get away for a few days to unwind. The brook trout fishing is excellent in the spring and fall. The wildlife watching is absolutely incredible all summer long.

The camps are accessible only by canoe or float plane. There is no phone service or Internet. A stay at the camps is like stepping back in time to the 1950s.
