Jackman Maine Travel Stories by Visitors

We are in search of great stories and tales about your visit to the Jackman region, to post here on our JMRRCOC Website. We want others who have not been here yet to experience our little piece of heaven in some way and perhaps to know what they may expect to see or do when they get here.

Almost every visitor to the Jackman region has an experience to share: did you try something you never did before like white water rafting; or maybe see a cow moose in a bog with her young; or catch a big salmon that you fried up for dinner on the campfire; or maybe this was your first buck you got after hunting for 20 years. Your story could even be as simple as the wonder of sounds you hear as you sit on the shore of Big Wood Lake as the sun comes up. No story is too small or unimportant.

Please, take a moment and share with us your experiences, your knowledge of the great north woods, maybe a little bit of Jackman History, or even tell us about your favorite restaurant.

The story contest is over. If you would like to provide a testimonial, please visit the contact us page.

A Deer So Dear

Incredible Blueberry Picking

This is a great website, but it totally leaves out the part about the incredible blueberry picking!! I lived in Jackman for about 5 years as a kid, and that was one of the very best things about living there. I'm planning a trip up next summer ...

8 Point Buck

I was sitting about 50 feet from my in-laws lawn. I had just bought a brand new 20 gauge shot gun pump that morning at Wal-Mart so I didn't get in the woods until late afternoon. I was in the woods one hour...I rattled and grunted a few times...a ...

Charging Bull Moose

Just as we are approaching young green trees full of white wet drops of water we pause, for if we continue we are sure to be soaked with water. To turn and head back down the mountain is nice warm safety. To continue on is trouble. Our decision is ...

Did You Know?

Mothers with young calves are very protective of their young and will attack if humans come too close. Charges by a Moose may only be "bluffs", warning you to get back, however take this seriously. When a moose does charge, it often kicks forward with its front hooves.

Did You Know?

Cows (the female moose) commonly give birth to twins or even triplets, usually in May-June. Offspring are completely weaned from Mom in about 5 months but will stay with her for a year.
