The town has both hills and valleys, humps and hollows and the occasional passable road...except during mud season.St. Albans is home to beautiful Great Moose Lake, a wonderful recreational body of water home to many seasonal camps and a number of year round homes. It is rich in wildlife, home to loons, eagles, herons, osprey, the occasional moose, beavers, and a multitude of small creatures, including an astonishing number of black flies. The fishing is good year round,and many folks enjoy ice fishing in the winter months. There is a rumor that there is another lake in St. Albans, but that is still unconfirmed. All kidding aside, there are several lakes many smaller bodies of water. St Albans has more than 10,000 vernal pools, spaced so closely together that if today's environmental restriction of no building within 750 feet of a vernal pool were in effect 200 years ago the population of the town would be zero, which might not be such a bad thing.
