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

Lots of fun... We were very pleased with the staff, our guide was Chris.. He was an awesome guide we give him 5 stars.. 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... We loved hearing all... 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

Wife and I went rafting recently after travelzoo announced a sweet deal- only $39 per person and it included lunch! Sweet deal for sure. Before we made it there, we were charged an additional $10 for a 'reschedule fee'- I am not a fan of fake charges- and I see this as being one. So that was a downside. The... More

Good Times Rafters-Are you sure it was a reschedule fee and not the State of Maine access fee which is paid to the Dept. of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife and Brookfield Energy for the use of their roads and dam controlled water? That fee is $5 per person and listed in the "fine print" on the Travel Zoo promotion. Thanks... More

Me and some of my closest friends rode the Kennebec and the Dead with Magic Falls some 6/7 years ago and we got hooked! For the next two years we continued to ride with Magic Falls, not because of the lavish accommodations, (they don't have hot tubs or restaurants or bars attached to their facilities like other companies), but because...
