Here in Millinocket, we are all about opportunity.

Location, location, location. Millinocket sits on the edge of the great northeast wood basket – 11 million acres of forest. Not only are there trees and more trees, there is vast 4-season recreational opportunity for those who love getting in the woods to fish, hunt, ski, snowshoe, paddle, snowmobile, hike, bike, camp, star-gaze, bird-watch, boat, and ride ATV.

Millinocket is situated on the West Branch of the Penobscot River, Maine’s largest river draining 1/4 of its land mass. That means fresh, clean water. Forever.

We have Maine’s 3rd largest industrial site, with 1,400 acres of land and industrial infrastructure to suit almost any sized enterprise. Our industrial site has unique federal and state designations that make it attractive to investors, along with affordable, clean, renewable power onsite.

We are a cold (41F ambient average temperature), safe, and affordable choice for data center projects.

We are part of the new economy. Millinocket has high-speed fiber optic internet infrastructure for those seeking to live in an amazing place while keeping their amazing internet-based job.

Of course, we have tax incentives and special economic development zones, but those are the icing on the cake. The real reason to move your business here is the natural splendor, the existing infrastructure, and the quality of life.

Millinocket is the gateway to Baxter State Park, a 200,000-acre state park that includes Mt. Katahdin, the gateway to the famed Golden Road, the gateway to the headwaters of the Allagash wilderness waterway, part of the Katahdin Scenic By-way, and neighbor to the newly designated Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument. We are 2 hours away from Acadia National Park.
