Welcome to the official town website for New Portland, Maine.
New Portland is comprised of three small villages, known locally as the North, the East, and the West. The town is located just south of Sugarloaf and Kingfield on Routes 27 and 16. The Carrabassett River runs through New Portland and is spanned by the famous Wire Bridge in the West village. New Portland harbors some of the best paddling, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, hiking, and leaf peeping in Maine.
If you are a new resident, the departments page explains town and area services. If you are planning your Maine vacation, you might find our area links a useful resource. Stay up to date on Town news by subscribing (for free) to our news and events or download the latest version of The Newportlander, our local paper.
