Abstract

An article on Packard's Camps on Sebec Lake, 13 miles from the nearest town of Guilford. It is run by Jerry Packard, 50, and his wife, Amanda. The camp, founded by Packard's great-grandfather, is the oldest sporting camp in the state run by the same family. It includes the 1865 main camp filled with historic treasures; simple cabins; and a set of outpost cabins, which Packard regularly visits with his floatplane. The staple clientele has shifted from hunters and fishermen to people who want to hike and see moose. Packard discusses how the paper companies have protected land that might have fallen to development, playing a role in the survival of the camp.
