Basin Pond Outdoor Center
The Basin Pond Outdoor Center is our new base for kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, snow shoeing, and cross country skiing. While we will continue to offer tours out of Belfast harbor and up and down the coast, we’re excited about having people come experience the unique natural area that surrounds Basin Pond.
Our Location: Basin Pond is 20 minutes from Belfast, 25 minutes from Bucksport or Hampden, and 35 minutes from Bangor. We are a little less than two hours drive from Portland.
From the south, take Route 7 north from Belfast and continue approximately 10 miles to the town of Brooks. In Brooks, turn right at the blinking red light and continue on Route 139 for 3.5 miles. Once past Buxton Lumber (on the right), continue downhill. Look for the “Basin Pond Outdoor Center” sign on the right. Enter at either end of the u-shaped driveway.
From the north or east, take Route 139 west from the village of Monroe. Continue 3.5 miles. Look for the “Basin Pond Outdoor Center” sign on the left. Enter at either end of the u-shaped driveway. (If you pass Buxton Lumber, you have gone too far).
