Chesuncook, ME


  • Type: Lake Environ

Situated in The Maine Woods, Chesuncook is a reservoir in rural central Piscataquis County, Maine. - AsNotedIn

On entering the lake, where the stream runs southeasterly, and for some time before, we had a view of the mountains about Ktaadn, (Katahdinauquoh one says they are called,) like a cluster of blue fungi of rank growth, apparently twenty-five or thirty miles distant, in a southeast direction, their summits concealed by clouds. Joe called some of them the Souadneunk mountains.Henry David Thoreau, The Maine Woods, 1864

The Thing on the Doorstep Short Story H P Lovecraft Chesuncook is close to the wildest, deepest, and least explored forest belt in Maine, and it took a whole day of feverish jolting through fantastic and forbidding scenery to get there in a car.
