50% Adventure. 50% Tradition. 100% Maine.

Who is MSCA?

We are guides. We are fishermen. We are chefs. We are your hosts.

We offer Maine's warmest hospitality to outdoor enthusiasts, and we'd like to invite you on an unforgettable fishing, hunting, hiking, paddling, or adventure vacation. We are an association of independent wilderness lodge and sporting camp owners coming together from the most rural parts of Maine. We work tireless hours to make sure that your outdoor holiday is everything you'd hoped for. Beyond that, we are all different, and we invite you to explore Maine to find your sporting camp tradition. Will that tradition start at a rustic camp without electricity? Will it find you sipping coffee on your covered porch while listening to the loons? Will it take you fifty miles from pavement or keep you closer to town? Whatever your fancy, Maine has a camp for you.


What we do

Maine's sporting camps and wilderness lodges are a historic tradition reaching back to the mid-1800s, when wealthy businessmen rode the then-new train from Boston to the remote Maine woods to hunt and fish. Today, Maine's lodges offer rustic accommodations to sportsmen of all walks of life: fishermen and hunters; paddlers and hikers; friends, couples, and families.

Most Maine sporting camps are family owned and are renown for their warm hospitality. Some are rustic, without electricity or running water, while others offer modern conveniences. Some are nestled on lake fronts or rivers, some are tucked in the woods, and some are close to town. Many offer the traditional American plan, where sports are treated to three home-cooked meals per day, while others offer self-catering accommodations, known as the housekeeping plan. What will you do on your sporting camp vacation? How about:

Ice fishing
Cross-country skiing
