Another excellent, well guided trip. Brent was a terrific leader and had us all working together instantly. Highly recommended even for youngsters. More challenging rivers are in our near future. Lunch was only so so.

Myself and 11 others stayed 3 nights at the Forks campground for a bachelorette party and had a BLAST! The 2-person cabin tents were clean, dry, and right on the river's edge with plenty of picnic tables, fire pits, and trash cans/recycling bins. Everyone loved the whitewater rafting trip - even with the clouds and rain! The gluten-free and vegetarian... More

I have been rafting with NO for about 10 years. We look forward to our trip every year. The rafting is always amazing and the staff at Northern is the best. The food, the beer, the fun at the lodge...ALWAYS a great time! I've taken my kids and gone with just my friends, either way it is the perfect trip.... More

This rafting trip is so much fun and run by expert guides and staff. Our guide was Emily. She was knowledgable, fun and made the rafting experience absolutely wonderful. A great way to spend a memorable day with friends or family.

I took my out of state relatives down the Kennebec and had a great time. Guide was experienced and low key. The food was good. We used the blow up kayaks when things slow down. It was a great day. Don't over pack . We just needed some good water shoes that strap and a water camera. You can get... More

I would recommend staying here for it is local to all things in The Forks and had all the amenities for anyone who like to "camp in style". We stayed in a Cozy Cabin with our dog and it was fantastic. Hot Shower, Fridge, Stove top cooking and a fire pit. The outside was as well kept as the inside.... More

We visited from England for our honeymoon. First time rafting, and although I was so nervous on morning as had booked one of the extreme days, as soon as I got on the raft I absolutely loved it! Our guide was very reassuring and we even ended up sitting at front of raft and went for a swim. So much... More

So glad that you enjoyed your honeymoon trip, and sorry that we're not located closer so that you could visit more often. I grew up in the UK and enjoyed many trips to Bude and my favorite beach at Crackington Haven, so it's nice to be able to share our part of the world with someone from "the old country" More

We just ran our corporate offsite meeting at Northern Outdoors - with focus on team building and trust - with excellent results. Our "coach", BRENT, guided us through great team building activities with a focus on the team building trust and overcoming great fears. Following the ropes course, we went to the lake and discussed team strengths followed by an... More
