Aroostook County, affectionately known as "The County," is Maine's northernmost region. Four million of Aroostook's five million acres offer many unique and exciting outdoor adventures. Most of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway is located here. There are major mountain ranges and more than 1,000 lakes in the area.
From top to bottom, Aroostook County has its special flavors and fabrics. The Upper St. John River Valley has rivers and woodlands to the west, open meadows in the east and a language and culture all its own. Many people here are descendants of the Acadians, who came here after being exiled from Nova Scotia. Visit the historic Acadian Village north of Van Buren to trace their "living history." Fort Kent and Madawaska offer more historic and cultural treasures. Aroostook is bordered by Canada on two sides, Quebec to the west and New Brunswick to the east. In central Aroostook, Caribou, Fort Fairfield and Presque Isle are commercial centers set amid acres of rolling farmlands.
The County, which produces over a million and a half tons of potatoes each year, is home to many potato harvest summer celebrations. Houlton is the northern terminus of I-95. It is surrounded by a serene countryside, colossal views and loads of outdoor adventures.
