We came up to Northern Outdoors for a buddy's bachelor party, and we were not disappointed! The cabin and lodge were in great condition, the beer and food in the lodge was delicious, and the price was great. We got a little rowdy, but that didn't seem to bother any neighbors since we felt like it was just us in... More

I have attended with the guys twice in the past (all 40-45YO) and loved the rafting experience and also the accomodations and resort. This time a group of 8 (four couples) attended and, despite considerable anxiety about the rafting initially from several of the girls, an amazing time was has by all. Each couple said enthusiastically that they will return,... More

This was my 5th trip with Northern Outdoors. I always return to them and it is always nice to see familiar faces amongst the staff from year to year. This trip was for 8000cfs on the Kennebec river. Our guide for the day was Ryan. This was the best trip ever. Not only did we have a great guide but... More

We were passing by during a roadie and stopped in for an overnight stay. Debbie met us and checked us in. While having a few "sundowners" in the cosy comforts of the lodge area in front of a cosy warm fire place we just had to stay longer. We approached Debbie and it was no problems at all. All the...

Our guides Ryan and Mark really helped make the experience better than we had ever imagined! Our cabin was fabulous and fit all 14 of us comfortably. I will never forget this great trip and... More

This was my first time in the West Forks area and my first time rafting. I was with a handful of other first-time rafters and we had nothing but the most amazing experience. We stayed in a cabin that comfortably held all of us and was equally clean and spacious. The kitchen was well-stocked which was great for cooking and... More

First white water rafting experience and it was way better than I imagined! The resort was so cozy and inviting, and our cabin was spacious and perfect! Ryan and Mark were our guides for rafting and they could not have been a better fit for our group. They made us feel as ease with the rafting, yet making sure we... More
