Our 413th national park, Katahdin Woods and Waters is part of Maine's famed North Woods, offering recreation opportunities for all.
Comprised of 87,500 acres in Penobscot County, Maine, the Katahdin region is a popular destination for outdoor recreation and home to a wide diversity of wildlife and contains spectacular mountains, important historical resources and areas of great cultural significance. The area contains opportunities for hiking, camping, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, and snowmobiling. These uses are fully protected and enhanced under the President's national monument designation signed on August 24, 2016.
