Visit Moosehorn

Established in 1937 the Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge consists of nearly 30,000 acres of federally protected lands in far Downeast Maine spread over a northern Baring Division and a southern Edmunds Division. The refuge's landscape is varied, with rolling hills, large ledge outcrops, streams, lakes, bogs, and marshes. A northern hardwood forest of aspen, maple, birch, spruce and fir dominates the upland. Scattered stands of majestic white pine are common. The Edmunds Division includes several miles of rocky shoreline along Cobscook Bay where tidal fluctuations of up to 24 feet occur twice a day. The adjacent Cobscook Bay State Park has a campground and boat ramp.
