You can’t get here by driving

If you’re truly looking for a remote backwoods experience, Wassataquoik Public Reserved Land is the place to go.  Two bridges that were located on adjoining private lands washed out approximately one mile short of the reserved lands.  Vehicles are unable to reach these lands, so you’re truly in for a remote experience!  The lands encompass several miles of the East Branch Penobscot River and Wassataquoik Stream.  Primitive campsites are located on the shore of the stream.
