17 Aug Family Fun on the Penobscot and Kennebec
One of THE BEST family fun vacations ever! We ran the Penobscot and Kennebec rivers this trip. The ‘Nob was fab – incredible guides and great rafting. Actually, all the staff from Dave the bus driver/cook to the dining staff and food were excellent. The guides were beyond great! The only discomfort were the bunk bed mattresses in the cabin that we stayed. Next time, we’ll bring air mattresses. The site location was beautiful too. Very tranquil A few more directional signs at and after “v” in the road once the driver is in Baxter State Park would be very helpful to provide a bit more guidance and assurance that the dirt is the correct road to be on.
Again, the Kennebec run was just as great. The ‘Bec ride was a bit less wild, but still fabulous. The lodging at The Forks was great especially having come from the Penobscot Abol campground with no indoor plumbing or electricity, and the kids LOVED the hot tub and pool. The adult drinks, restaurant, and hot showers were never more appreciated.
The entire trip was a blast. I will recommend the trips and Northern Outdoors to anyone who asks!!! And, I hope to repeat these trips next year.
