Megunticook Lake & Norton Pond
Popular connected lake and pond in the seaside towns of Camden and Lincolnville. "On Golden Pond" feel - yet in ocean-fronted towns.
Scenic 1,220-acre Megunticook Lake and Norton Pond (which are connected) are studded with islands. The water is cold and crystal-clear, and the lake has a maximum depth of 64 feet. The key species of fish you will find in this spring fed body of water are brown trout, rainbow trout, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass and white perch. Fernalds Neck, a Nature Conservancy preserve, extends into the center of the lake. Another local landmark is Maidens Cliff, a rugged promontory on Mount Megunticook that is visible from most parts of the lake. Camden Hills State Park, in Camden, offers camping.
