Body of Water: Brownfield Bog, Brownfield, ME [Maine Gazetteer Map 4, B2 , ]
Directions (from Portland, ME): Follow Rt 25 through Gorham and Standish. Turn right onto Rt 113 through Hiram and Baldwin into Brownfield. Once the speed limit decreases you will be approaching an intersection, of 113 and 160. Take Rt. 160 on the right. Go over a bridge and 160 turns right, you need to stay straight onto Lord Hill Rd. Just after transitioning to Lords Hill Road take an immediate left onto a dirt road, Bog Road, that looks like a driveway. The dirt road is very narrow with lots of ruts and bumps. (There were some small cars parked there once we got in, but I think I would have been nervous about bottoming out in a small vehicle.)
*The Maine Gazetteer made it look like it would be a bit easier to find than it was. The tricky part is that the dirt road you have to turn onto to get to the Bog, off Lord Hill Rd., off Rt. 160, looks like a driveway. After a few times by, we finally got it right !
Boat Launch: The put in spots are a bit narrow. It's easy to get in to the water's edge. I get into my kayak by wading into the water and sitting into my kayak as if it were a chair. This spot was a little hard for that because the bottom was mucky, but I faced the fear of what would be in the muck and it was well worth it!
Parking: There is room for 8-9 vehicles, in a little loop/turnout area. I think any kind of trailer system would be hard to navigate. Much better for people who transport their kayaks on top of their vehicles.
Wildlife: Birds (many songbirds, red winged black birds, & blue heron), turtles (snapping and painted), and we got lucky and saw a moose.
Notes: Other than the great outdoors, there are no bathroom facilities, and since this is a spot that is a bit off the beaten path, you may have to become one with nature.
I believe this is Pleasant Mountain in Bridgton, ME. (The back side of Shawnee Peak.)
