The End cabin was converted into the main lodge after the original lodge burned down in late October 1973. Plans for construction of a new lodge are underway and after completion The End will be converted back into a camp.
The camps are situated on the north end of Enchanted Pond in Upper Enchanted Township. Activity at Bulldog Camps dates back to the late 1880's. When it was settled as logging camps. The rugged terrain held off the lumberman for many years until the surrounding wilderness had been cutoff. The steep terrain made it very difficult for horses and men alike.
Enchanted Pond is the site of the famous log sluice built by Henry P. McKenney. The sluice was 1 1/4 miles long and 30 feet high in places. A dam was constructed at the outlet of the pond to allow for spring log drives. Remnants of the old dam and wooden sluice still remain and the steep mountain rising abruptly from both sides of the pond can allow ones imagination to wander back in time to the hay days of Maine's logging era.
The shores of Enchanted Pond are scattered with fossil rocks from millions of years ago making it a popular tradition for rock picking by many guests. The water dives to 202 feet deep at its deepest point with clarity that makes it ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving.
In the early 1900's more camps were built making Bulldog Camps what it is today. For years fly in float plane service was the primary means of travel to Bulldog and for those looking for a unique experience fly in service is still available. The beauty of the area is enough to impress even the most experienced traveler, with the mountains, lakes, rivers, ponds, caves and abundant wildlife. For those looking to go back in time and leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind, Bulldog Camps is your destination.
"We had the best time! Saw a moose, grouse, rabbits and fox. Found a hornet's nest, rocks with fossils and even went diving for a fishing pole. Hope to make it back in the winter. We will definitely be back next year!" The Sargent Family, Brunswick, ME
