The Van Buren Station is located in Aroostook County, which is known as the "Crown of Maine" and is the northernmost Border Patrol Station in Maine. Its area of responsibility covers 162.6 miles of international border with the Canadian Provinces of New Brunswick and Quebec. Of the 162.6 miles, approximately 52 miles are land boundary and 110.6 miles are water boundary made up of the St. John and St. Francis Rivers along with Beau and Glazier Lakes. The area of responsibility includes 2,116 square miles with approximately 80% being forested and 20% being agricultural with rolling hills.
