Upton is a small village of less than 100 residents located near "The Umbagog Area of New Hampshire and Maine," in Oxford County. Author Richard E. Pinette described this area as "nature's playground with a rich forestland heritage." It is, indeed, an area steeped in history of old time logging days, but today offers four seasons of outdoor recreation on thousands of acres of forestland, and miles of scenic waterways. The Umbagog region is also the "undisputed Snowmobile Capital of the Northeast," with hundreds of miles of woodland snowmobile trails that wind along mountains and valleys, and beside pristine rivers and lakes. Nearby, the town of Errol marks the beginning of the "Thirteen Mile Woods," an unspoiled stretch of beautiful woodlands along the Androscoggin River, an area known for its canoeing, kayaking and fishing opportunities. The Northern Forest Heritage Park, near Upton, recreates the logging camps of yesteryear and also provides pontoon boat rides on the Androscoggin River. Other points of interest include the "Floating Islands," a wilderness wetlands listed in the Natural Register of Historic Landmarks and Lake Umbagog National Wildlife Refuge, which was established in 1992. Upton is also just a short drive to the popular Rangeley Lakes Recreational Region and the Rapid River's legendary trout and salmon fishing.
