Roxbury is a town in Oxford County, part of River Valley (Maine) in the Lakes and Mountains region of Maine.

Get in[edit]

Roxbury is located on Route 17 north of Mexico and South of Byron. Roxbury pond is located just off Route 120 north of Rumford before entering Andover.

Get around[edit]



  • Roxbury Pond (just off Route 120 in Roxbury). Also known as Ellis Pond or Silver Lake. A large pond with sandy beaches and a boat launch. Swimming, canoeing, fishing and boating are common on this body of water.
  • Bunker Rock. Provides a nice swimming hole experience across from the cemetery just after Frye Crossover Road on Route 17. A very large steep boulder has maintained a deep pool perfect for a cool swim. The water is typically deep eenough for one to dive into the water from the boulder. After the deep pool the water level gradually levels off to a nice rocky sand bar that is above the water level during the summer months. Smaller children and their families enjoy this feature. In the evening hours, locals sometimes head to Bunker Rock for a quick skinny dip.


There is a convenience store on Route 120 just before the turn to Roxbury Pond.




  • Silver Lake Campground, 161 Main St (at Roxbury Pond), +1 207 545-0416.
