AUGUSTA — The Maine Conservation Department says the Allagash Wilderness Waterway is providing winter campgrounds at Chamberlain Bridge and Kellogg Brook.

Registration for the campgrounds will take place starting at 8 a.m., Saturday, at the Chamberlain Bridge ranger station. The 48 campsites will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Allagash waterway Superintendent Matthew LaRoche anticipates renting out most of the 48 available campsites by noon on the first day of registration. To be sure of getting a site, he suggests that campers arrive at Chamberlain Bridge before 8 a.m. on Dec. 10.

The Allagash is a 92-mile-long ribbon of lakes, lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams that winds through northern Maine’s forests.
