So, a previous topic about camping got me thinking and doing some research. Some of my favorite areas to camp are the more primitive and private ones. While looking at Cupsuptic Campground I noticed they have a few primitive tent sites on the Cupsuptic River. I really like where site #2 (The Bridge Site) is and wondered if anyone had stayed there, or at any of their primitive sites for that matter. I heard the fishing is good, but the fish are small and thats fine with me. Any info appreciated.

I haven't stayed there, I usually camp at Rangeley Lake State Park. But recently the group that did the Outdoor Heritage Museum up there took that campground over (The Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust), and I have heard they did great things with it. On top of that, staying there helps to fund their cause. Awesome area for fishing, FFIM is having their annual conclave there this year.

For many years, the guys and I stayed at Cupsuptic Campground. We would stay at the secluded campsites on Birch Island. As a matter of fact, we'd rent the whole island for the whole weekend. Great, great times and Cupsuptic is great to do business with.

i fished up there last summer. there are a half doz sites or so, fairly private. there are a few plunge pools, then the river becomes wide and shallow. small fish, but there is plenty of good fishing within a short drive.

There are more site closer to the Magalloway. If I can remember #12 and #6 was nice too. The one at the bridge gets alot of traffic and road dust if it's dry out. I stay at the campground too, but to get away from people is good always. Good luck.

About Kevin McKay and Maine Fly Fish
My name is Kevin McKay and I became a Master Maine Guide in 2003. But before that I started www.maineflyfish.com, one of the largest fly fishing web sites on the east coast. It is dedicated to helping everyone who is new and experienced, to bring out their best when it comes to fly fishing. So it was only natural I became a guide and I haven't looked back.
