Chandler Mill Pond in New Gloucester is one of the Royal River’s few headwater ponds. This 47 acre pond sits on a 117 acre forested parcel and has a hand-carry boat launch for water access. The pond is now a state wildlife management area managed by the Maine Department for Inland Fisheries and Wildlife for its exceptional fishery. Adjacent woodlot parcels including Little Hill and sections of the Royal River shoreline are now owned by the Maine Woodland Owners Land Trust, open (but undeveloped) for public access. More Info.
