- About Baxter State Park / Mount Katahdin
Governor Percival P. Baxter so enjoyed vacationing in the Maine woods as a child, he purchased nearly 6,000 acres of land in 1930 to fulfill his dream of creating a park. The park that bears his name now covers 209,501 acres and includes Mount Katahdin, Maine’s highest peak. About 75% of the park is managed as a wildlife sanctuary. The northwest corner of the park is managed as the Scientific Forest Management Area and is a showplace for sound forestry. Paddling, hiking, camping, mountain climbing, fishing, and wildlife viewing make this park a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and activity levels.
