Whittaker Creek Recreation Area

Description:

Whittaker Creek Campground offers family camping in a wooded riverside location with a hiking trail that provides access to an old growth stand of Douglas fir high above the campground. The Old Growth Ridge Trail was designated in 1994 as a National Recreation Trail due to the exceptional wildlife, geology and old growth trees that are typical of coast range ecosystems. Chinook and coho salmon, as well as steelhead trout, can be observed in the fall and winter months in the creek next to the campground.

Maine ocean islands provide the only nesting sites for Atlantic puffins in the United States. Eastern Egg Rock in the midcoast region, Seal Island and Matinicus Rock at the mouth of Penobscot Bay, and Machias Seal Island and Petit Manan Island off the downeast coast provide habitat for more than 4,000 puffins each summer.
