The Allagash River has been enjoyed by paddlers and sportsmen for over 100 years. Since the mid-1960’s the Allagash River has been preserved and managed as a State park, now known as the Allagash Wilderness Waterway (AWW). The many Ranger stations and Rangers that work along the river corridor assist paddlers, maintain campsites and character of the river. Several sights of significance are worthy of traveling to such as: polar ice caves, locomotives at Eagle Lake and Allagash Falls.
