Gray Ghost Camps Rockwood, Maine



Fall is a time for wildlife to scurry in prepa­ra­tion for win­ter and vaca­tion­ers to pack up and head home from camp … or is it? Rock­wood is bustling with activ­ity in the Autumn months when other areas are start­ing to but­ton up for the com­ing win­ter. Hunt­ing sea­son peaks, fish­ing is pro­duc­tive, and the foliage is absolutely stun­ning dur­ing the lat­ter part of the year.

Hunt­ing Havengallery_15-14-480-360-80 (1)
Located in the heart of the wildlife region, Rock­wood boasts some of the best hunt­ing grounds in the North­east. The vast, unin­hab­ited woods are home to prized game while the over­lay of back coun­try roads pro­vides acces­si­bil­ity. Besides world tro­phy class white­tail deer, hunters can also enjoy the thrill of pur­su­ing black bear, par­tridge, and moose. Black bear sea­son kicks off the Fall in Sep­tem­ber and lasts through Novem­ber, fol­lowed by deer archery, par­tridge, and moose sea­sons in Octo­ber, and deer firearms sea­son in Novem­ber. www.maine.gove/ifw/hunting_trapping/hunting/index.htm



Cast Away
Fall fish­ing is a favorite among fish­er­men look­ing to catch the last of the year’s open water fish. The Ken­nebec and Moose Rivers turn out boun­ti­ful fly fish­ing catches, while the lakes offer a placid refuge for the fresh water angler.

Crunch­ing Leaves Under Foot
Autumn is, per­haps, the most enjoy­able sea­son to hike our region’s plethora of sky reach­ing moun­tains. The weather is cool, the air is crisp. Wildlife is teem­ing, yet, the bugs have gone. The elab­o­rately painted land­scapes seen from the tops of moun­tains, such as Lit­tle Spencer, Big Moose, Moxie, and White Cap are unsurpassed.
