Sprague's Falls Preserve



Sprague's Falls is a hide-away where the artists who created Bambi gained inspiration. This preserve has 608 acres of land protected along 5.5 miles of river with trails, a wonderful swimming hole, a historic  camp, and an abandoned homestead to explore. 

The Boar’s Nest Camp can be booked year round.  It is water access only, so bring your kayak or canoe for this adventure. 

We welcome the public to the DSF Land Trust properties and ask that you review the Hunting & Wildlife Viewing Equipment Policy in advance of your visit. All properties are 'carry-in, carry-out'.  You must have a permit to have a campfire on the properties.


State law requires fire permits for all open fires (including in campsite fire rings). Campfires may be banned during dry periods. Contact the Maine Forest Service for a permit at (207) 827-1800.


This preserve can be accessed from Sprague's Falls Road in Cherryfield. Approximately 3 miles from Blacks Woods Road is a marked parking area where there are 2 trail heads to access the preserve.
