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"

I went here as a bucket list item with a group of 10 women. The Kennebec river was perfectly challenging and our guides, Justin and Gina were exceptional! Chris did a great job singing songs on the way up to the river and Eric did a great job coordinating. Perfect day on the river! As a group of 10 or... More

I lead an abnormally busy life. I work a full time job, own and manage a busy memorial ceramics business, belong to local development boards, coach sports and have raised 4 children... Free time isn't something that I have a lot of. This past Father's Day weekend, I cleared the weekend and took my 19 year old son with me... More

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

After the exciting part of the trips, meaning falling and jumping into the river and laughing so hard because of the good time we had, Chris was very knowledgeable of the area...

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.
