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.

We signed up for the two day rafting package that included two rafting excursions down the Kennebec. Both days we had families with children aboard. The rafting guides really keep you safe. Our guide on the first day JJ trained us well. Clearly a seasoned guide, first time rafters can enjoy the rapids knowing Julian is in control. On the... More

This time we did the multi gorge and it was the best. My wife gets motion sickness so she only did the second run which was great because there was no stopping waiting for other boats. The staff was awesome and the food at the end of the trip was great. If you haven't been rafting you have to go... More

We have been before, but went rafting with the Magic Falls Rafting Company for the first time, and couldn't have asked for a better experience! The day was perfect, and our guide Becca was so fun and very knowledgable. Some of the folks in our raft had never gone rafting before, but Becca took great care of us all and... More

Just got back from "the best day of the summer" (kid's words not mine, but I agree) - rafting the Kennebec with Magic Falls Rafting Co. It was a fantastic experience and a top-notch organization from top to bottom. The prices are great ... we actually had a Groupon offer for a different company, but MFRC's package cost much less...

Went on a raft trip last July '14 with several friends and Molly. Only minutes into the adventure her confidence and command of the river was clear to me. She read the river like the back of her hand. She could (and did) put the raft right where she wanted it. (Right, Kate?!) The river was no threat to Molly;... More

We booked a rafting trip for our family of 4 (including 2 kids, age 10 and 12) through The Birches Resort in Rockwood Maine. We had a spectacular time with our guide Becca. All the guides were young and energetic and seemed to love their jobs. Becca was very knowledgable about the river and we all felt very safe under... More

We had a fun and exciting day! Waves, water, food and fun! Great hits, perfectly timed, the best white water rafting ever! This was trip number 20 for me and it won't be the last. Thanks to our superb guide's skills, thank you Becca!
