Campsite Maintainer Wanted – White Cap District

Carl A. Newhall Campsite – Be the maintainer for a campsite named for a MATC legend! The Newhall campsite is located in the beautiful White Cap range and near Gulf Hagas. Drive access is via Katahdin Iron Works and an old logging road, but no special vehicle is required. Walk access is about 2.6 miles with ~700 feet of elevation gain. This campsite has a lean-to, tent sites, as well as a moldering privy. Privy maintenance involves “raking the pile”, but it’s really not that bad (witnesses available upon request); become a MATC “turd herder!” More information on campsite maintainer duties and privy maintenance.

Campsite Maintainer Wanted – Baldpate District

Bemis Mountain Campsite and Lean-to: This Baldpate District campsite in the Rangeley Lakes region needs a maintainer! Walk access is about 3.0 miles with 1,050 feet of elevation gain; the first 2.5 miles is on a gravel ATV trail and the last 0.5 miles is on a flagged maintainer trail. The lean-to is in decent shape, and a new privy was built in 2015. Privy maintenance involves “raking the pile”, but it’s really not that bad (witnesses available upon request)- become an MATC “turd herder!” More information on campsite maintainer duties and privy maintenance.
