Bull moose at Kokadjo Maine

Kokadjo is Maine's moose watching capital. We can direct you to the best spots, including several that are known as the best places to see big moose. You might even see one of our resident moose resting or feeding in front of our Trading Post.

Where to See Moose

A little over a mile from your cabin is Lazy Tom Bog, which has the highest concentration of moose in Maine according to the biologists at Maine's Department of Inland Fish & Game. Bring your camera because you WILL get a picture of one!

When to See Moose

You can see moose most any time of day all year long. But the best times are before 8 am in the morning or in the evening. And the best way to do that is to stay at one of our modern and comfortable cabins. If you are staying elsewhere, be sure to stop at the Kokadjo Restaurant for breakfast after your early excursion, or have a great dinner and enjoy the after dinner show that the moose put on for you.

As some of the following photos will show, the first place to see moose is right here at the Kokadjo Trading Post on First Roach Pond!
