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"

Great staff, facilities and guides. We went for an end of season family outing and had a great trip. Although a bit chilly, air temperature was only in the low 40's with water temps in high 60's, the dam release was extra high at 8250 cfm. Very fast, wet trip down the river, nice steak and seafood lunch back at... More

The water flow was at 8000cfs. We had a group of 10 people that we came with and had C.J as our guide! My wife, along... More

Molly was our guide and she was fantastic -- knowledgeable, extremely competent and lots of fun. Lunch was waiting for us after the rafting and it was a super afternoon. This was our first experience and... More

Becca did an awesome job giving both veteran and first time rafters a great ride! Day two we had "Chris St. Laurent" guiding our raft on the Dead River. Now that we were... More

We were not disappointed on our first white water rafting experience with Magic Falls Rafting Company. Everyone is very friendly and the company as a whole is safety conscious without being over the top. Beau, our guide, was a seasoned professional and made sure the entire boat, which included a family with 4 young girls, had a good time. The... More
