Welcome to the Penobscot Paddle and Chowder Society
The Penobscot Paddle and Chowder Society is a non-profit organization of outdoor-loving people, with membership primarily from Maine. The Society was formed in 1969 by Bangor-area canoeing pioneers with a sense of humor and a fondness for chowder suppers. Over the years the club has grown, the boats have changed, and the activities available to members have expanded, but the friendly and supportive nature of the PPCS remains the same.
Whether your idea of great paddling is Class V whitewater or tripping on wilderness lakes, you'll find members of the Penobscot Paddle and Chowder Society who share your passion!

|Saco River, Steep Falls camping||Hello PPCS,
I'm driving out from Wisconsin in a few weeks to spend a month paddling in Maine with my students. I'm looking at the Delorme Gazetteer and see two primitive campsites marked by Steep Falls, but when I look at Google Earth, I don't see any camping spots around there. All the commercial campgrounds in the area won't be open yet for the season (we'll be arriving on 4/29). Does anyone have any information about those mystery sites shown on the Delorme near Steep Falls? Or any other suggestions of inexpensive places to camp with a group of 8 near Limington Rips on the Saco? We don't need anything fancy--just a place that is legal. Thank you for your help!|
