Conklin's Lodge was established in 1986 and has continued till the present time. I, Les Conklin am your host. When you arrive here you will find the grounds and the accommodations very clean and well kept. Whether you choose just a cabin rental for the night or a fully guided hunt, we strive to make your stay here an enjoyable experience! Along with my team of guides, our bear hunts are some of the best in the state of Maine. Over the years of hunting we have enjoyed a 90% sightings at the bait sites and a constant 50-65% kill success while sitting at your site. But it's not all about the hunting, Patten Maine sits at the north entrance of Baxter State Park and millions of paper company land you have access to, so come explore the hundreds of lakes, ponds, streams and rivers. Hike, go off roading, raft, snowmobile and fish, all this right from your cabin door.
