Welcome to my blog: Deep in the North Woods of Maine, Township A Range 12 is home to Maine’s longest running sporting camp. The camps have been continuously operated since 1881, and they has been in Eric’s family for over a century. You may drive right in to the camps summer and winter. Come share our traditions and make your own memories.
