About Us

An amazing experience awaits you here! Baxter State Park is an iconic four-season wilderness park, home to Katahdin, the tallest peak in Maine. Some of the most remote, rugged country in the Northeast US lies within the 200,000-acre park, including 47 mountain summits, more than 50 pristine lakes and ponds, and over 200 miles of hiking trails. The park offers over 300 sites for camping and primitive lodging in rustic private cabins, shared bunkhouses, lean-tos, and tent sites. Our headquarters is located in the nearby town of Millinocket.

The park was designated ‘forever wild’ by Percival Baxter, a former Maine Governor, who bequeathed it to the people of Maine. Our primary focus is wilderness preservation, while providing unique opportunities for visitors to closely experience and appreciate a landscape that is truly wild.

You’ll find working at Baxter State Park is not just a job, it’s an adventure. We want you to bring your skills, experience, and your sense of awe to Baxter State Park. By joining our hardworking team, you can inspire current and future generations to love and appreciate spending time in the wilderness.

All these things added together make Baxter State Park a unique place to work, and an extraordinary opportunity for those who thrive in a challenging, rugged landscape.
