Cambridge is an unincorporated place on the Maine border. It contains the southern part of Lake Umbagog.


The first day I was there, it had been raining for several days. There are quite a few islands that you can boat out to and camp. Camping in the rain doesn’t top my list of fun things to do. Apparently this group decided they had had enough. They banded their canoes together and tried to use a tarp as a sail…


They finally gave that up and used their paddles…


They were completely soaked when they got to shore.

The shores of Lake Umbagog offer some great views…



Cambridge is also a great place to play in the mud! And to watch moose…


Cambridge is  the perfect place to start your north woods adventure!

    Hi Laura! Great photos! I love Lake Umbagog, have been on three dog-sledding trips there over the years. The baby Moose is such a great shot!!

      Thanks Martha. I really enjoyed my time there. Hopefully next time I’ll get to put the kayak in!

    I didn’t even know there was a Cambridge, New Hampshire! It looks like my kind of place though.

    I love the young moose photo Laura. We’ve traveled to New England a number of times, and have yet to see a moose. Is there a trick to spotting them, or is it just luck? ~James

      It’s mostly about being out early in the morning or just before dusk. Of course it helps to know where they like to hang out. Next time you get to New England, give me a shout, I’d love to bring you to some of their hangouts.

        Thanks Laura. One thing I heard was that the reason car/moose collisions are so frequent is that moose love to eat the grass on the edges of highways that have been salted in winter. Sorta like cattle and salt licks. Have you ever heard this?

        Yes. I’ve even seen moose in the middle of the road licking the salt from the road. Another reason for a high collision rate is that they are so tall that at night , your headlights go under their bellies, with them being so dark they are very hard to see until it is too late.

I'd love to know what you think!
