Maine's fun, safety-conscious, value-priced whitewater outfitter on the Kennebec and Dead Rivers, offering trips May 1 to Columbus Day. Magic Falls base facility offers a campground with tent sites and cabin tents, a lodge with king, queen and bunk rooms (ADA room) and a restored farmhouse sleeping 16 for family groups who wish to have all the comforts of home. The base has the area's only outdoor climbing wall along with changing rooms and showers, half court basketball, volleyball, recreation pavilion and complimentary float tubes. Magic Falls is famed for its overnight "outback adventure" that include rafting, a hike to Moxie Falls, wildlife safari, tent camping and campfire meals. Magic Falls was the first to offer a double run of the upper Kennebec Gorge for action-packed adventurers and an upper gorge 1/2 day morning trip called "Cheap Thrills"

My boyfriend is an experienced rafter and I have been a few times. We decided to take our 5 daughters with us this year. Everyone had a blast! Justin was our guide and he did a great job giving us just enough action to make it fun, but kept it low-key enough to make sure the 10 year old didn't... More

Thank you so much Magic Falls for creating an opportunity of a life time! For the second year in a row, Magic Falls provided programming to youth involved in the Maine Department of Corrections. Most of the youth have never experienced the adventure of white water rafting. Donna and her amazing staff, Gina, Lauren and Senior, gave the kids and... More

This was my first time rafting in level 3/4 rapids. Ben, our guide, handled them with ease. He knew the names of all of the rapids and explained how the dam release works. I learned a lot and had a great time.

This was my first time rafting, and I had a fantastic experience! Ben was our guide and he was calm, confident, and strong. He knew his stuff! He also knew a lot about the river and dam which made the ride interesting as well as fun. The Magic Falls cabin we stayed in was clean, dry, and in good shape.... More

Wonderful experience. Our guide, Becca, was perfect for our group. We had three adults in our group, two of whom were somewhat apprehensive, and three children ages 15, 12 and 9. She is a special ed teacher and she said she has taken blind and hearing impaired people down the Kennebec with great success. She is a great guide if... More

The owner was not truthful about certain things that had to do with the safety of one of our party. She was very rude and not accountable for what she quoted us over the phone. Then when she was confronted, she lied and was not willing to compensate for her mistake. Very dissatisfied. She is not very business wise...... The... More

This was our fifth rafting trip and our first with Magic Falls Rafting. Our guides, Becca and Mike, made the rafting experience very good for all of our group. The accommodations, our "tent cabins" were very good and I would recommend this if you don't want the hassle of bringing your own tents. The only downside to our trip was... More

This summer was my second time visiting Magic Falls Rafting. We drove up the day before our rafting trip, stayed overnight in the Dead River Lodge and then rafted the next morning. Very friendly and excellent staff, wonderful rafting instructions on the river and a fun BBQ afterwards! Our guide even stopped our raft along the river to show us... More

We had an amazing guide for our trip (Becca)! She made it very fun for our girls aged 9,11 and 13, who were much more brave than I. They were great about reviewing safety features and were very friendly to talk to. Also the food at the end was delicious and my daughter says the cookies were the best. So... More

It was so much fun. I will admit at first I was nervous, but Becca (my guide) made me feel at ease. They make the best food I've ever tasted! It was such a good trip I had to write a review the moment I got home!
