To spend time on Damariscotta Lake is to fall in love with it. Sparkling clean water dotted with small islands, a soundtrack of trilling loons and premier fishing are just some of what makes it so special. The lake covers 4,600 acres, and has shoreline in Jefferson, Nobleboro and Newcastle. Kayaking, canoeing, sailing, world-class iceboating and swimming are just some of the ways you can get out on the water. Camping on one of our Spectacle Islands allows you to totally immerse yourself in the life of the lake!
