Rangeley, on the north side of Rangeley Lake on Route 4, has long lured anglers and winter sports enthusiasts to its more than 40 lakes and ponds and 450 square miles of woodlands. Right behind Main Street, Lakeside Park ("Town Park" to locals) has a large swimming area and boat launch. Equally popular in summer or winter, Rangeley has a rough, wilderness feel to it. In late January the Rangeley Lakes Snowmobile Club’s Snodeo offers thrilling snowmobile acrobatics, fireworks, and a chili cook-off.
