Dead River Rafting Part 3: Only 8 High Water Releases

Dead River Rafting with Northern Outdoors

The flooding of the town of Flagstaff, in the fall of 1949, created Maine’s largest man-made lake and contributed to turning the area into a destination for Maine adventure vacations.

One of those well-known adventures is Dead River rafting with Northern Outdoors.  Each year, we’re lucky enough to have 8 releases on the Dead River.  This 16-mile trip offers a day of paddling through heart-pounding Class III, IV, and V whitewater and avid rafters say that “you haven’t rafted Maine until you have been on all three rivers – Dead, Kennebec and Penobscot“.

So come join us on the river and experience the excitement of the Dead River!

This is a three part blog so be sure to read Dead River Rafting Part 1 and Dead River Rafting Part 2.
