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

Whitewater Rafting in Maine

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)!

ATVing in The Forks, Maine
But it’s not all splashes and crashes of whitewater. Our local ATV club plans for trails to open up in The Forks area on May 25th with rentals from Maine Outdoor Sports available on site, and our friends at Kennebec River Anglers are booking fishing trips NOW for those spring catches.

Whether you hike, bike, raft, fish, or just want to relax, our adventure resort in the Forks is where it’s at. Spend a romantic getaway in our cozy cabin for two, or bring your whole crew up to stay in one of our 4 bedroom cabins (sleeps 12). Pop your tent (or camper) along the river in our riverside campground, and build yourself a campfire. Wherever you decide to put your feet up at night, you’ll be sure to have earned it!

Katahdin Campground
You can also put your feet up at our Katahdin Adventure Basecamp, along the banks of the mighty Penobscot River! Opening day: May 25th
If you join us for adventuring, be sure to share it with us after on Facebook or Instagram, and #northernoutdoors. Here’s to an awesome season of adventuring!
