Welcome to Winthrop
It would be safe to say that if there were a “water world” in Maine, Winthrop would be a top contender for the title! An amazingly beautiful town that is surrounded by accessible water for its residents and visitors alike is definitely greatly appreciated by those who love the outdoors. In fact, Cobbossee Lake has gained accolades nationally as one of America’s best lakes to fish! In addition to the water, Winthrop gives one a glimpse of what one of Maine’s perfect, small towns looks like. It is perfectly located between larger urban, service centers so its people and visitors alike can enjoy activities and events all around as well as right next door!
Events & Activities
The Hillandalers Snowmobile Club work hard to maintain the snowmobile trails in this area. In addition to all the care they give the trails so you can have an incredible ride, they also foster good relationships with the nearly 140 landowners that have allowed access to their private lands so everyone can ride on them!
Hiking & Biking
The Mount Pisgah Conservation Area features three trails: Tower, Blueberry, and The Ledges that all come together at a former Maine Fire Service Tower where you can see for miles and miles...and on a clear day, you can even see Mt. Washington!
Cobbossee Lake is known nationally for its superior fishing. Just over nine miles long, this large waterbody is a prime example of why folks keep returning to this area for rest and relaxation.
Winthrop does not have any lodging available, but nearby towns and cities offer accommodations as well as camping facilities!
Wow! Winthrop sure offers locals and visitors alike plenty of choices to dine out or take away! From pubs and sit-down eateries to subs, burgers, and pizza, you will find more than enough places to enjoy a great variety of delicious food!
