Location

Fort Kent is situated on the northern border of Maine in the Saint John River valley. The area is known for its ideal winter conditions with ample snow from December through April. Rolling hills, lakes, rivers, forests, farms are all scenes you experience as you drive over the hills into the valley.

Moose, bears, white-tail deer, raccoons, and multiple species of birds are abundant. Nordic and alpine skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and snowshoeing are all popular forms of winter recreation. In the summer, golfing, canoeing, fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, and biking occupy the residents’ free time. Fort Kent and the St John Valley region have the small town atmosphere full of fun-loving, hard-working people who have embraced outdoor sports.
