Greenville is located on Moosehead Lake—the state's largest lake, at 40 miles long and 20 miles wide. You can go fishing or boating on the lake or venture to the middle of the lake to hike up to the top of Mount Kineo, with its 763-foot sheer cliff. Here you can also see one of the world’s largest masses of rhyolite, a light-colored volcanic rock found in select spots throughout the state.

This area is also one of the best places to spot moose—during the “Moosemania” festival in spring, moose sightings are in the hundreds. You can hire a guide to take you on a moose safari or other outdoor adventure, such as a fishing or dogsledding trip. Seaplanes can ferry you to remote campsites—or you may choose to stay at a local cabin, inn or B&B. Ice fishing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are popular winter activities.
