A public beach features an inflatable water park, while elsewhere in Pohénégamook, visitors will find public gardens and a marina. Camping is plentiful in and around Pohénégamook, putting you close to several national parks and attractions.

Weather and offerings are best from June through October, though Pohénégamook can get very busy in mid-July through August when the lake is at its warmest and most welcoming.
