Big Moose Lake

Big Moose Lake

Be sure to paddle the bays and narrows of the lake for some of the most scenic vistas in the area.

Getting there

From the intersection of Route 28 and Big Moose Road in Inlet follow Big Moose Road. Continue to Higby Road on the right and follow here to the car-top boating access.


From Big Moose you have plenty of options for hiking as well. You can access a short trail to Russia Lake from East Bay, the Sisters Lake from a bay a bit further north as well as a hiking trail to Gull Lakes.

This is a large lake where the conditions can get very rough in ill weather, but generally it is calm and a pleasant paddle.


There are three primitive tent camping sites. Each of the hiking trails have a lean-to on the shore of the water body.


Loons frequent this lake as well as kingfishers cruising the shores in search of food.
