Known for it’s once booming mill and shoe industries, Dexter is now a populated but mostly quiet town. The town is home to almost 4,000 people and has everything you need including a small airport and great golf course!

Hunting, fishing, and other outdoor recreation are some of the popular reasons folks visit Dexter with plenty of places for these activities! Lake Wassookeag (big and little) is a very popular spot for recreation of all types and provides a public boat launch and beach area.

People all around the world know of Dexter, Maine because of great novelist, Stephen King. King featured a town called Derry in a few of his works, loosely based on the town of Dexter. A photo of the Main St. has been featured by King as well.

Here are some photos from Dexter from Instagram:
