Spednic Lake & Upper Saint Croix

Downeast Maine · Washington County

Located on the Canadian border in northern Washington County, Spednic Lake and the Upper Saint Croix River feature 4,188 acres of state-owned conservation land along the corridors of both bodies of water, bordering public land in neighboring Canada. This area features traditional, backcountry recreational experiences in a near-wilderness environment for fishing, hunting, boating, camping and nature study. The Land for Maine’s Future Board supported the acquisition of land around Spednic Lake and the Upper Saint Croix from 1992-1995 and 2004.
