Around Rockwood

Brassua Lake Camps is a sportsman's paradise  and/or a great relaxing destination for any busy family.  In the summer the lake is great for recreating on or in the water or just relaxing on the shore.  Brassua is one of  the top ten largest lakes in the state, but also one of the most private.  Making it perfect for water recreation and also great for a quiet, peaceful get away.  Evenings at the camps are perfect for making s'mores while watching the beautiful sunsets, whether you are renting a cabin or one of the campsites.

Fall brings in crisp cool evenings and the area is a hub of hunting activity.  Located just off ATV trails and on the fringes of the 3.5 million acre North Maine Woods.  The area includes some of the best bear, moose, deer, partridge and duck hunting in the state.  

 In the winter enjoy the convenience of being right on the route 66 snowmobile trail.  Brassua also offers great ice fishing or enjoy a game of ice hockey with the family.  We also offer snowshoe trails and a great place to cross country ski.  


Enjoy a hike up Rockwood's Mount Kineo, a perfect mountain for a family hike and great that it is local.  

An hour south is Borestone Mountain, that is also great for a quick family hike, located in Elliotsville.  

Thirty minutes north is Jackman that offers many different mountains to hike, including Sally Mountain and Boundary Bald Mountain.  


Down hill and cross country ski at Big Squaw Mountain. Big Squaw is a community mountain for youth and families to ski and ride affordably, as well as learn to ski, ride, and race. They embrace the history that once was, while working together to make the future of the mountain a resort for the family. 

There are many different golf courses to take advantage of.  Take a ferry ride over to Kineo Island and enjoy 9 holes on Mount Kineo Golf Course.  Head to Greenville and enjoy Squaw Mountain Village Golf course, or Jackman's, Moose River Golf Course. 


From the cabins, take a quick walk or ride over to Dam Road.  Enjoy fly fishing on Moose River or just visiting the dam with family.
