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"

We have reserved our Outback Adventure Trip here for the past 5 years. We usually stay in the cabin tents (camping made easy) but this year we are staying in the main house or the Rivers Inn on the property. We raft for two fun filled days and in the evening we are treated to a Lobster Dinner and a... More

In June 2014 my family (8 of us) stayed at Magic Fall River's Inn. It was late when we got there due to our long ride, as soon as we walked in it was like walking in our own home, it was very welcoming and it had everything we needed and more. The next day we did Kennebec River rafting... More

We reserved a cabin tent for the 4 of us quite a while in advance, paid the fees online, etc. When we arrived, around 6pm on the appointed day (a Sunday in late August), the office was closed, but there was a whiteboard posted showing a map of the campground and indicating which tent was ours, so we moved right...

On August 6th I walked into the confusing office in the back of a house without many signs. After stopping at 3 other places and being told that they were all sold out of cabin tents I was very thankful I found a place with "many" openings. I made a reservation for 2 people for 2 nights at the end... More

I have rafted with a number of company's and I liked Magic Falls the best for a number of reasons. 1. Well versed and focused on safety (we had four kids with us) 2. Understood their customer in each raft - experience and desires. 3. Fun and happy at all times 4. We all made it home alive!!! Fun day.... More

Our guide, Jimmy, was fantastic. Our rafting was amazing. I highly recommend the Double Gorge trip... double the excitement without the lazy float! The food was good, even for vegetarians. My only complaint is that I really wanted a picture and some of the pictures from our trip were great, but they showed the pictures in the hottest room on... More

We had a small boat for the three of us so the ride was spectacular. And the best guide I have had, named senior, he really made the trip down fun.

We have rafted with MagicFalls twice now. We camped the first trip with the kids but today we made the 4 hour trip up for the multi gorge trip. It was so worth the drive. After the fantastic double trip down the river we had a great Bbq. The staff is great at making you feel welcome. They show you... More

We had such a great day on the fun yak trip down the lower Kennebec. Its is not at all what I expected but blew any idea of what I thought it would be out of the water. It was such a fun trip and more rapids than I thought we would hit, which was awesome since I have been... More
