Caribou is home to miles of cross-country ski trails and snowmobile trails for winter recreation; this is the where you will find Maine Winter Sports Center. Snowmobile tours are available in Caribou as are Caribou cabin rentals along the trailside.
In summer, Caribou has miles of biking and hiking paths, 9-hole golf course, The Spud Speedway Race Track, and natural beauty for miles around. Waterfront cabins serve as the ultimate retreat to escape and truly enjoy nature.
Caribou is the potato and broccoli capital of Maine, but there is much more to see and do than just spuds and buds. Caribou is located in the geographical center of Aroostook County. The County, as it is referred to by Mainers, is easily reached by Interstate 95 from the south and the Trans-Canada Highway (New Brunswick Route 2) from the north and east.
The Eastern Maine Railroad serves Caribou and Aroostook County, connecting Maine to Vermont and the Canadian provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick. There is direct rail service between northern Maine’s Caribou to Saint John, New Brunswick and Montreal, Quebec. You will find a significant French Acadian influence in Caribou due to its proximity to the Canadian border.
