History meets hospitality at Maine sporting camps, and no more so than at Bradford Camps on Munsungun Lake in the north woods. Guests from all over the northeastern United States once traveled five days to get to the camps, beginning on a train, transferring to a buckboard, and for the final two days, paddling canoes up river. Today many guests fly there in a float plane, or travel up to Ashland and take a leisurely drive through the north woods to the lakeside camps - paradise.
As we drove into the yard, we stepped out of the vehicle and back in time. Log cabins dot the shoreline, made from logs that were floated across the lake more 100 years ago. In all that time, the camps have had only five owners. Igor and Karen Sikorsky knew immediately, after searching the state for years, that these were the camps for them, and they’ve been providing the age-old sporting camp experience for 20 years.
