Woodland is a census-designated place (CDP) in the town of Baileyville, Washington County, Maine, United States. The population was 952 at the 2010 census.

"Woodland" was originally the name of the entire town of Baileyville. However, because the state of Maine has a law stating that no two towns may share the same name, Woodland of Aroostook County and Woodland of Washington County found themselves before the Maine Supreme Judicial Court in the late 1990s. Because it was founded as a township first, the Woodland of Aroostook County was allowed to keep its name, and Woodland of Washington County was ordered by the court to choose a new name: "Baileyville".
