Schoodic Lakes, Maine
These are large collections of water, of very irregular form, united together by boatable passages, lying principally in Washington county, but extending west into the county of Penobscot. Their outlet is by a large stream of the same name, into the river Saint Croix, on the west side, of about 9 miles in length. These lakes cover a large surface, they are navigable for large boats, and their borders, and indeed the whole country around them, are densely wooded. Vast quantities of timber and lumber descend from these waters to the St. Andrews, Eastport and Lubec markets, on the Passamaquoddy.
