The Camps

As the only fly fishing camp on the Rapid River, we make it relaxing and easy for you to enjoy premium fishing and create a memorable trip.

Our all-inclusive rates feature comfortable accommodations, 3 homestyle meals per day, recreational equipment, and much more. Just bring your fishing gear and luggage, and we’ll tackle the rest. 

Lakewood Camps has been a full-time sporting camp since our opening in 1853. We are proud to be one of the oldest, most historic fly fishing camp in the great state of Maine.
