There's so much to do from our Katahdin Adventure Base Camp, hiking the Appalachian Trail, exploring Baxter State Park, climbing Maine's greatest mountain, paddling or fishing right from our campground at Abol Bridge, and of course whitewater rafting on the Penobscot River.

The campground at Abol Bridge was absolutely beautiful and relaxing. It is by far one of the most beautiful places in Maine and the perfect place to camp out before a day rafting the Penobscot. Our guides Matt and Todd were awesome! The rapids were wild, surfing the rapids was...

I have the utmost respect for the rafting guides and crew at Northern Outdoors. My daughter fell out of the raft in the middle of the cribworks and while the raft went down the chute my daughter took the longer route. The guides kept their cool and composure and safely...

The last trip of the season was the day we rode the Penobscot, It was overcast and gloomy but that was all forgotten once we hit the river. Ted kept us moving but safe. Surfing the waves at the waterfall was a bit disconcerting but all a wonderful experience. It...

My group rafted the Kennebec last summer and had a blast and decided to come up again to raft the Penobscot. The trip was fantastic! Going on a Sunday also proved to be a bonus with only three rafts from Northern Outdoors and only saw two rafts from another outfit....

This trip was awesome from start to finish and exceeded some pretty high expectations by a long shot. We were met at the pavilion and greeted with enthusiasm from the first. Todd, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and very fun. He knew exactly when to keep us safe and exactly...

Another great job by your staff this year - this was our 3rd trip and it was by far the best one! Accommodations were great and food quality was improved - kudos to the cooks in the back. We stayed in the Logdominiums and it was perfect. We decided to pack...
