Soon, there will be a new riverside campsite available to those paddling the Penobscot.
Versant Power is providing a new campsite to paddlers on the Penobscot River. According to a press release from the utility, the campsite will be established on land Versant owns in Winn. The effort was spearheaded by The Penobscot River Paddling Trail. The organization provides campsites for paddlers traveling the main stem of the river, from Medway to Bucksport.
This fall, PRPT members worked with Versant Power's property management team to find a riverside area that was a perfect campsite to add to the network. Versant says the new campsite is about 10 miles upstream from PRPT's campsite in the Lincoln area, and about 10 miles downstream from a soon to be established site in Medway.
Versant says the location perfectly fit PRPT's criteria for a campsite; scenic, quiet, and easily accessible from the river, but not by land. The exact location of the campsite will be added to the PRPT network soon.
