  • Hunting - Whitetail deer, moose, bear and upland game. We have a very large area for hunting and have been rather successful. We have packages for bear hunting and grouse hunting.
  • Fishing - Maine is famous for its fishing. Right in our backyard, trout, salmon and bass have been caught off our boat dock. Not far from us is the world class Penobscot West Branch, pools and ponds are to be found in Baxter Park. Fly-out trips can be made to a vast area in the Moosehead and Katahdin region.
  • Snowmobiling - Well groomed trails for snowmobiling run hundreds of miles in any direction and offer breathtaking scenery in this awesome winter landscape.

Just 15 miles from the northern entrance to Baxter State Park, the lodge offers all of the amenities most people desire, while being located in a quiet wilderness setting away from the hustle, bustle and congestion of Baxter State Park's south entrance near the town of Millinocket.
  • Wildlife Watching - Moose abound throughout the area. Even if you're not hunting, you are bound to see one. Loons, eagles, herons and other wildlife are common in the area.
  • Nordic Skiing - Opportunities to ski through Baxter State Park are available, and we offer vehicle shuttle or transportation for hearty ski groups planning this adventure.

Matagamon High Adventure Scout Base

Many scout troops begin their trips to the Matagamon High Adventure Scout Base at Mt. Chase Lodge. We are twenty minutes from the Matagamon Base landing. Since 1976, we have been helping to simplify the logistics of trip planning for troop leadership by providing a convenient place for Scouts going to Matagamon to lodge and eat at minimal cost. This eliminates the need to bring extra food and gear.

After a good night's rest and a hearty Maine breakfast, Scouts making the trip are excited and ready for adventure upon arrival.

Your Hosts

Rick and Sara Hill have operated the lodge since 1976 and are well experienced in the needs of their guests. As an accomplished master guide and outfitter, Rick has guided hunting and fishing parties for 26 years, as well as offering wildlife canoe trips and winter snowmobile tours. He can also offer excellent advice for hikers and campers visiting Baxter State Park, our premier wilderness attraction, as well as direction to other areas of interest.

Sara has operated the food service and accommodations end of the business and has become famous for the best in family style meals as well as banquet and special event preparations. Homemade biscuits, breads, and desserts are among the specialties offered.

We look forward to serving you!
