Megunticook Lake 'Ice Out' contest

Mar 02, 2018
Megunticook Lake Watershed Association is sponsoring an “Ice Out” contest.

Camden — The Megunticook Lake Watershed Association is once again sponsoring an “Ice Out” contest. The person who guesses closest to the date and time the ice goes out on Megunticook Lake will win a $100 gift certificate from Maine Sport and a year’s subscription to the Camden Herald. The "second-best guess" prize is a $50 gift certificate from Viking Lumber. “Ice Out” is called when a boat can navigate in open water from the outlet dams to the Ken Bailey Bridge where Norton Pond empties into the lake.

Contestants can send their entries to or P.O. Box 443, Camden ME 04843. Get your entries in as soon as possible -- after our recent warm-up the ice might not last long this year. But, if you are a gambling sort, we will accept entries up to 24 hours from the "Ice Out time." One entry per person. Our Lake Warden, Dale Dougherty, will call “Ice Out." To check on historic "Ice Out" dates, go to When sending your entry, include your full name and contact number. Good luck!
