Deboullie's low rugged mountains and scenic remote trout ponds are all available for visitors using the 22,000 acre unit's hiking trails and campsites. Snowmobilers frequently pass through the unit on their way from Eagle Lake to the Allagash.
The landscape of three-fourths of the Deboullie Unit is the gently rolling, forested ridges typical of northern Maine. However, it is the southeastern quarter of the unit that attracts anglers, hikers, and other who enjoy scenery with many small ponds and low rugged mountains. Deboullie is the French word for the rock slides on some of these mountains.
The State of Maine is a member of North Maine Woods, an organization that manages recreation on nearly three million acres in northern Maine. Day use and camping fees collected at various checkpoints defray the costs of managing public access and maintaining recreation facilities. This unit is within the North Maine Woods system, so visitors must pass through a checkpoint and pay the required day use and camping fees. North Maine Woods can be contacted at (207) 435-6213
