Quoggy-Jo Mountain @ Aroostook State Park Panorama


Aroostook State Park is the perfect place for outdoor activities. Hiking, skiing, snowshoeing boating and more! The park bears the distinct honor of being Maine's first state park. In 1938 interested citizens of Presque Isle donated 100 acres of land to the State of Maine, and following that gesture, the park became reality in 1939. Today the park totals nearly 800 acres thanks to subsequent donations and purchases. Aroostook State Park is the ideal starting point for discovering the North Maine Woods, the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, and the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick and Quebec. Encompassing Quaggy Jo Mountain and Echo Lake, the park offeres a unique chance to study our geologic past. In fact, Quaggy Jo is the shortened form of its Indian name, "Qua Qua Jo" which translates to "twin peaked."
