KATAHDIN ADVENTURE BASE CAMP
Raft one of Maine’s most thrilling and gorgeous rivers–the Penobscot. Challenging, technical whitewater rapids in the granite-walled Ripogenus Gorge are balanced by playful holes in the lower section. Spectacular scenery, wildlife and action await you on this dam-controlled river. Learn more about our Penobscot River Rafting trips.
The Big Moose Inn offers a wide selection of indoor accommodations for individuals and groups rafting the Penobscot River, hiking in Baxter State Park and exploring the Katahdin region. Big Moose has inn suites with private baths, inn rooms with shared baths, lakeside cabins, and trail side cabins, all situated either on or within walking distance of two beautiful lakes. Kayak, canoe, and stand up paddle board rentals available on-site, along with moose boat tours and scenic plane rides.
