  • The Chewonki Foundation owns Big Eddy Campground located on the West Branch of the Penobscot River in T3R11.  Situated just outside Baxter State Park, Big Eddy is considered a world-class site for Landlocked Salmon and has been a destination for fishermen for at least 100 years. The road to Big Eddy is equally stirring. Just beyond Millinocket, the grand Katahdin Range looms on the horizon, and the summits of Doubletop, The Owl, the Brothers, and Mt. O-J-I are all visible on a clear day. It is still possible to see more Moose than cars on an early-morning drive on the Golden Road. Then there’s the river itself, a dark constant cutting through the region’s geology and culture.

Big Eddy remains one of those rare places that seem unchanged by time. Join us for an experience in one of the most spectacular places in New England!
