25 Apr 2019 Rafting Season Opening Day is Almost Here!
After a long, snowy (but amazing) winter, we’re SO ready to welcome rafting season with open arms! On May 3rd at 2:00pm we’ll be opening our doors at our Forks Resort Center and Kennebec River Pub & Brewery to rafters, hikers, boaters, road-trippers, vacationers…you get the point. We’ll be here!
Opening Weekend for Whitewater Rafting on the Kennebec River with Northern Outdoors
With a fun opening weekend in store, we hope you’ll get a chance to swing by for some of the action. Saturday is our first trip of the year on the Kennebec River (want in on the Dead River instead? Dates here), and is topped off with our Beginning of the Year Cuatro de Mayo Party on Saturday Night! This means taco bar, margarita specials, and DJ Hoss spinnin’ tunes all night for our staff, friends, families, and YOU!
If you can’t make opening weekend, no worries. We are lucky enough to have the Kennebec River running all season long, with daily trips from May 4th through October 13th. Plus, eight scheduled releases on the Dead River (including five this fall) and daily trips on the Penobscot (starting May 25th)!
You can also put your feet up at our Katahdin Adventure Basecamp, along the banks of the mighty Penobscot River! Opening day: May 25th
