06 Sep 12 Highlight of my summer!
I visited Northern Outdoors facility in the Forks, ME with a friend in July 2012 for a few nights of camping and a day of rafting on the Kennebec. Let me start by saying that I have never been whitewater rafting before so I have no other experiences to compare to, but we had a fantastic time! I don't have a single negative thing to say. Northern Outdoors has a great reputation for being the best and I believe they lived up to that.
Our time on the river was great, we had a blast, lunch on the river oustanding, the whole day was handled beautifully by the staff at NO. We were impressed at how efficiently the staff managed to feed 100 people on the river in 45 minutes, nicely done! The staff there is fantastic, very accomodating and friendly, great with kids.
I was drawn to Northern Outdoors because of their on-site brewery, I am a homebrewer and appreciate good craft beer. Every beer they had on tap was excellent, especially the nut brown ale! The food was very good too. Great atmosphere at the restaraunt as well.
Overall, we had a great experience at Northern Outdoors and will definitley be back with a bigger group! Thanks again!
