The town of Springfield, ME which is located in northern Penobscot county boasts a population of approximately 409 citizens. Springfield is an old farming community and the signs of old homesteads can often be found in the forests that have reclaimed many of the once cleared farm fields. The forests around Springfield and the surrounding communities are working forests producing timber for area woods products manufacturers. The young regrowth from this harvesting provides excellent habitat for whitetail deer, moose, hares and grouse.
Outdoor pursuits are readily enjoyed by the inhabitants of the area. Hunting, fishing, hiking, boating, atv riding and snowsledding are all very popular. The logging roads throughout the area provide a base for an extensive ATV trail system in the spring, summer and fall. In the winter many of these same trails become groomed snowmobile highways. The nearby Grand Lake chain of lakes in Lakeville, as well as the streams that feed these waters, provide numerous angling opportunities year-round. The cold clear waters of this area provide excellent habitat for salmon, brook trout and lake trout. Spaulding Brook and Lombard Lake provide fishing opportunities right from the property for white perch and brook trout.
