As the National Park Service monitors and responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, we work closely with the NPS Office of Public Health to use the latest science to guide our decision making. Access to Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument is as follows:
Open: All campsites and lean-tos are available first-come, first-serve for winter camping. Roads and trails are available for standard winter operations and activities like cross-country skiing and snowshoeing.
While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, services may be limited. The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. We will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.
There are no public restrooms with running water within the monument. Vault toilets are available at designated locations. Bring hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol to use when soap and water are not available. Campers or those planning extended visits should bring personal supplies of water and soap to practice proper hand hygiene.
Be advised that this is a new national monument. Amenities are limited and signage is sparse. Cell phone reception can be spotty or non-existent.
