Lake-View-Plantation is a small, quiet town nestled along the shores of beautiful Schoodic Lake in north central Maine. The town serves as a tourist stop for those visiting the Three Rivers and Katahdin region; in fact, the town offers some pretty fantastic views of Mt. Katahdin. The Three Rivers Community is made up of many small towns and townships in Piscataquis and Penobscot Counties, and the area is also known as the Penquis Valley, and the Maine Highlands. Schoodic Lake is a large spring-fed lake, about twelve miles long and three and a half miles wide. It provides swimming, fishing, canoeing and kayaking, water-skiing and even snorkeling, and is a great place for birdwatching and wildlife viewing. Lake View Plantation is near several state parks and recreational areas, including the Allagash Wilderness Waterway and the Kennebec and Penobscot Rivers, the Lily Bay State Park in the Katahdin Moosehead Penquis Area. Mt. Katahdin is also the northern starting point of the Appalachian Trail. If you enjoy winter sports, Lake View Plantation has some of the best snowmobile trails in the state. Ice fishing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding and ice-skating are all available here, as well. Schoodic Lake has also been the site of an annual ice-fishing derby for over 40 years, also usually held in February.

Lake View Plantation Weather & Climate

North-Central Maine has four seasons of relatively mild weather. Summers in the Mt. Katahdin Region, near the Canadian border, are cool, with highs in the 70s or sometimes reaching the low 80s. Interior areas experience a greater range of temperatures in the summer, with some nights in northern areas near freezing. Winters in Maine are cold and sometimes even frigid. January temperatures range from 11 to 31 F along the coast and 1 to 19 F inland. The snow can be lovely, and if you aren't opposed to cold weather, wintertime is a great time to visit Maine. Continuous snow is generally on the ground from December through February and sometimes into March. Daytime highs gradually increase March through May. In September, the spectacular colors of fall blaze and sunny days and cool nights characterize this favorite season of many in Maine.
