Summer 2021 - Dover Foxcroft, ME
To Sue, Wade, Abby, Lisa, and the entire Tylor Kelly's Camps Team in Allagash, Maine, On behalf of the Outdoor Women company, we want to thank you for all that you and your team did to help make our 2021 Outdoor Women’s Allagash Paddling Adventure a success. We will continue to return to Kelly’s North Wood Lodge for many more OW adventures and greatly appreciate the relationship we have built with your organization. As we stepped out of our car on arrival, Sue greeted us as if we had just been there last week like we were lifelong friends, this is a testament to the welcoming environment Tylor Kelly’s Camps provides to their clients. Following shortly behind us were 14 other women who had never been there before, many were first-time paddlers that signed up to go canoeing for 2 days in the Allagash wilderness. With so many different experience levels and backgrounds their are many details that needed to be considered. Tylor Kelly’s Camps thought of them all!! Sue, Wade, Abby and Lisa were attentive to every question asked and genuinely interested in helping make this the best experience possible for all our participants. They have the best people, they are super organized, clean, have top-notch equipment, and are a first-class operation all the way around and went above and beyond to make our experience unforgettable. The adventure was pure perfection. Thank you to the entire Tylor Kelly’s Camps Team for all your help and support! Once again we were in awe the moment we arrived and were treated like family we are thankful to have gained some treasured lifelong friends...it was nothing short of amazing. We look forward to many more OW adventures with you and to having a long-standing history with Tylor Kelly’s Camps! Sincerely, Deborah Gould, President Tracie Papsadora, Vice President Outdoor Women
2021 Father/Daughter Fishing Trip
This is Abby the girl from the pictures writing from my mom’s page. Thank you so much ( catching muskies and out fishing my dad was pretty fun ) The Brook Trout photos may be posted later, they put up a great fight! I was amazed by the Trout’s coloring, how smooth the fish was, and how quick and delicate fish they are. Out of my starting Sunfish, Pumpkin Seeds, Blue Gills, and Perch to Large Mouth Bass, Small Mouth Bass, Striped Bass, Crappies, Pickerel and Muskies..... NATIVE Brook Trout are my new favorite fish! Thank you Tylor Kelley’s Camps! The experience was amazing, Wade our guide was spectacular helping me out on “Big Black”, Fall Brook, and McLean Lake! (Sorry for loosing your panther lure) Sue was very friendly and open, explaining about the cabins and answering all my questions. Darlene and her friends cooked a fantastic brunch at Two Rivers Lunch. The cabins and location were beautiful, I’m just so happy about how this trip went. There’s really no words for how great this trip was. Once again thank you so much, this was so great I loved every single part of this trip. I really hope I can do it with my whole family, and I cannot wait to tell my friends!!!!!!
This weekend I checked a big one off the bucket list, catching a musky on the fly. However, it would be wrong of me to strictly accredit my success to persistence and raw angling ability. Jake, a recently founded friend and local guide out of Tylor Kellys Camps Allagash Maine, had a major role to play in my success.
I want to be clear. This was not a paid for guided trip. This was three friends floating down a river, having a few drinks, and fishing. That didn't matter to Jake though. He showed a constant excitement and passion for what were doing and wanted to share all he knew about the area we were floating. It kept me motivated and confident that if I kept fishing then I would catch a musky.
As a fishing and hunting guide, you can assume a free weekend doesn't happen very often. In fact, at one point during the day he mentioned that this weekend will more than likely be the last one he has off in a while. In my opinion, that highlights the quality of a guide he is. He took two friends to do what he does for work on one of his only days off. It's not about the money to him. It's about getting outside and sharing what he loves and knows to other people. That's why I'm sharing my experience via Facebook. If anyone is considering visiting Allagash, just know that the guides there aren't just good at what they do, they love what they do.
2021 - Carthage,MO
Looking for a black bear hunt. Look no further. Simply the best. Thank you Sue, Wade and Abby.
Everything you could ever want in a guide service. Extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of the wilderness experience. They are professional in everything they do, but add that very special, personal touch; they really care that their clients have the adventure of a lifetime. You may go to Tylor Kelly Camps as a client, but you always leave as a friend.
2015 Moose Hunt
I drove 30 hours by myself to hunt with Tylor Kelly's guide service and would do it again in a minute!
Absolutely fabulous people and guide service! Wade, Sue and Jake treated me and my friend like we were family on our October Moose hunt. Jake guided us to an awesome 45" Monday morning first hour bull that had wide paddles, just what we were looking for.
Everyone went out of their way to help us whenever we needed it. Do not miss breakfast at the Two Rivers restaurant either - it's awesome!
The accommodations were great and extremely clean. Can't say enough about these guys. If you want to know more send me a message but be prepared for me to talk for a while and tell you what a great time we had.
We will be back!
2020 Moose Hunt
It was a great week moose hunting with you. Food and lodging were excellent and the whole staff went way out of there way to insure us a successful hunt.
Allagash River Shuttle
Just got back from my 4th trip down the Allagash. The Kelly’s have a great spot at the end of the river and you won’t meet a nicer couple in Wade and Sue. They are always happy to go out of their way to help and to make your trip comfortable. Thanks for lending me a belt for the trip and the cup of coffee for the ride to Umsaskis!
2020 Moose Hunter
Arrived home safely. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience. Everything was perfect. The service, food, and accommodations, as well as the guiding was off the charts. Hope to see you again in the near future. Have a great winter!!
Master Maine Guide Tylor Kelly still putting people on moose at age 83
The Kellys are the finest guides in the State of Maine. They carry on a tradition stretching across generations. Each generation builds upon the lessons of past generations in the art of hunting, fishing, canoeing, and so much more while distinguishing themselves by adding to that wisdom keen expertise during countless hours along the woods and waters of the Allagash and St. John Rivers. Lucky for them, Darlene Kelly Dumond keeps them well fed!!
2017 Moose Hunt
Wonderful people that make the experience about you in a beautiful location. Have used their services for 2 hunting trips and a fishing trip. Some of my best family memories are with the Tylor Kelly's Camps crew. Can't wait for my next trip to the Allagash.
Been coming over 12 years to hunt bear
Tylor Kelly Camps is SO MUCH MORE than just a hunt camp & guide service! They are the TOTAL PACKAGE... the real Maine Hunting experience. And to top if off, they are some of the greatest people! Awesome, dedicated, and VERY GOOD at what they do! I highly recommend them (just please don't book my spot! Hee hee!) See you all again next year!
Summer Vacation in Allagash
The beach and playing golf is so overrated! Whatever season you decide to visit, Wade will make sure it's an adventure of a lifetime! I can't wait to shed my shoes, dangle my toes over the side of the canoe, take a deep breath and soak in the beauty of the Allagash!! Grab your fishing pole, your bug spray and your camera! This is where memories are made.
Maine Bear Hunt
Being my first time to bear hunt I didn’t know what to expect. I can honestly say that with all that happened in the wk it was one of the greatest experiences I could ever hope for. I sat in a blind then decided to hunt w the hounds. I shot a 121lb bear out of a tree and with alot of emotions cried. Everyone there understood that rush of adrenaline. I will never forget the great hospitality of Wade & Sue Kelly, their beautiful lodge and great meals. Jake & Lisa Feener for their patience w us Ohio folk and their tracking abilities and to all the houndsman-Mike (Hubb)Jared, Clint and Billy I highly recommend them for a great hunt
2019 Moose Hunt
I give it a 5 star rating! *****
Our accommodations, meals and guide named Hilton was a perfect combination for our success.
Thank you so very much,
Reg and Reggie Poussard
Praise from a another Maine Guide
Absolutely professional!! Wade has been in the business for 30 plus years and serves a great mentor for all us young bloods. I had my first interaction with Wade this morning as I was out scouting moose, and a true gentleman he is. If your looking for a top knot h experience in the North Woods, give Tyler Kelly Camps a call, you will be glad you did!!
Allagash River Canoe Trip
Wade shuttled our car from Chamberlain to Allagash for our paddle along the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. I would highly recommend Wade and Tylor Kellys for any trips in the area. We didn't notice it, but a slow leak in one of our tires meant that the tire was flat when Wade arrived to shuttle our car. He changed the tire, drove with the spare to Allagash, and when we arrived offered to plug the hole. He repaired the tire and had us back on the road in no time. The plug held all the way back to Portland and we haven't had any issues since then. Thanks again Wade!
Allagash River Canoe Trip
Sue and Wade are the rock stars of the Allagash River Wilderness. They were incredibly accommodating with us and gave generously of their time and material goods to make sure our adventure was awesome. Their advice on where to start our canoe adventure was perfect. Then there was the perfect fishing advice! Be sure to start your Allagash adventure with these experts!
2019 Bear Hunt with Hounds
You will not find better people anywhere! I felt right at home and Wade is the most experienced hunter and tracker that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. If your thinking about booking a bear hunt please don’t hesitate they will put you on them!
