Lambert Lake, tucked amidst mountains near the New Brunswick border, is an attractive and largely undeveloped Great Pond. The steep wooded shores along this 605-acre water body are broken only by a few rustic camps, mostly concentrated at the southern end.
Boaters and fishermen have traditionally enjoyed this scenic setting, rich in brook trout and landlocked salmon, but until a few years ago there was no guaranteed public access. To help ensure continued recreational use, the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife acquired a 6-acre shorefront lot that will accommodate a small launching ramp and an 8-vehicle parking lot.
The Department received support for its purchase from the LMF program and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Sport Fish Restoration Program.
