Our third year in a row at Northern Outdoor and I have to say that you guys never disappoint. The staff is great, the guides are awesome and the beer is excellent! Our guide Jay was outstanding as well as the rest of the crew on the river. Lunch is...

We had an amazing stay at your facility. The kayak trip was beautiful and was a great start to our weekend. The raft trip was an absolute blast!! We had a group of 12 and a kids ages 11 - 24 and every single one of them could not have enjoyed...

I've been coming up to the Abol Bridge Campground for about twenty years and although the campground has changed hands it still has a wonderful family atmosphere with beautiful views of Mt Katahdin. It's a long ride but always worth the trip up. The owners and staff are so friendly and...

This was our third trip to Northern Outdoors as a family with our seven children and their friends. The kids are always excited to go, ranging in ages 17 - 30 yrs. This year we decided to get married there and surprise the kids after our rafting. Besides excellent guides (...

First off the staff at Abol Bridge campground were very accommodating, friendly and professional! We will return! Our raft trip with Ryan Roderick was cold and slightly rainy, but was so much fun. Ryan was our guide a few years ago on the Kennebec raft trip. He was so remarkable, we...

When I think "family traditions," I recall the valiant attempts my mother made for a Sunday night family dinner or annual summer vacations to visit her parents on the other side of the state. Of course, life got complicated quickly and those traditions fell by the wayside. (Can you say, "Teenagers"?)...

The day our family scheduled to run the Penobscot River was a complete downpour. I know they do this all the time in all weather, but I still had my doubts that it would be quite as much fun. No worries, it turns out. Our awesome guide Luke and the rest...

We had a great time rafting. Had done the Penobscot earlier this summer and was very impressed with how the trips have improved. Went over the Nesowadnehunk Falls FOUR times! The younger kids in our families wanted to try rafting themselves, so we tried the Kennebec. Not as dangerous or challenging,...

Having rafted both the Penobscot and Kennebec, the excitement of the Penobscot surpasses our experience on the Kennebec. With first-time Penobscot rafters with us, we were mildly concerned that we may be biting off more than they could chew. NOT! Our guide was great - extra points for inviting multiple...

Northern Outdoors is THE BEST! I look forward to my rafting every year (as I have for about the past 15 years). There is no other company that I'd go with other than Northern (we tried others early on), or place I'd stay other than the POC, rafting the Penobscot....

After spending two nights and rafting on the river, our family tank is "full". What an amazing trip for the four of us (incl. 10 and 14 yr old daughters.)Our trip guide, Ryan, made our first ww rafting trip as a family, a really fun experience that now our 14...
