Whitewater Rafting Maine’s Rivers Since 1976

Is Fall the best time to travel in Maine? We think so! We have special whitewater releases (don’t miss Last Blast on the Dead River!), daily rafting trips on the Kennebec, ATV trails for miles, spectacular hiking, fishing beneath waterfalls, and a sweet riverside trail that runs right through our campground to take in the fall colors by bike or foot. Whether you raft or ride, lounge or hike, The Forks is the perfect place to enjoy the fall foliage; and the route to Northern Outdoors is one of the most scenic road trips in New England! Your trailside cabin and fresh craft brew await…
