Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge reviews
You can still drive the roads and walk the trails but buildings are closed and no restrooms that we could find. Wooded areas and water with many large bird nest easily seen from the road. Still worth.... more »
Off Route 1, just outside of Calais, we took the time to drive in, visited the park office where we were welcomed, and drove through the much of the park which is very peaceful. more »
