My Uncle & Aunt have been going there about 4-winters now and love staying right on the trails. For my husband's birthday he wanted to experience the snowmobiling for himself. It was suggested for beautiful day trip we head to Great Falls and then over to Lake Parlin Lodge for lunch. The trails were pretty well marked but we did... More

Stayed in the spray stucko Hell over the bar. Dirty accommodations, noisy and the staff were just plain rude. I will sleep in a snow cave or under my car before I stay there again. It sucked out loud to the point of being ridiculous.

Where do I begin with this. My wife and I found this place randomly online and we felt that we needed to take a look. We are originally from Maine and live in Massachusetts. We looked at places in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and throughout Maine. She really wanted a place where we'd be able to take nice pictures and this... More

Everything and everyone at Northern Outdoors was outstanding. It was our second trip to the lodge and it was every bit enjoyable as our first trip. That is why we chose to come back . The staff made you feel like family and the accommodations were like being home. And all around pleasure to spend time with you. And we... More

We started planning our wedding at Northern Outdoors about 1 year ago. Sonja was our coordinator from the very beginning, and what a help she was! She always responded quickly when I wrote to her and made the planning very smooth. She even helped us find a great DJ. I was very happy to have had her help and support... More

My friends and I have gone rafting with this company a few times, and each time it is incredible!!! The day spent on the river is so much fun, especially when the waters are high and the weather is beautiful. We usually go in August and thus far, have had great weather every time. The Forks site has more to... More

Super fun resort complete with cabins and the lodge has their own brewers. We go every year when we white water raft the Dead and Kennebeck rivers. There's also 90' Moxie Falls nearby which is only a one mile easy hike.

We had a blast! It was more of an adventure than we expected. Our guide Tony was awesome. He kept us safe, was always in control, and non-stop entertained us. Very accommodating with our kids. The way the rafting co. comes together as a team to prepare a large group lunch is amazing. The scenery is spectacular. It's so much... More

It was great fun rafting with Northern Outdoors, they are and first rate operation. We had a great guide who despite her small size could really communicate loudly even with the river roaring...that's important. They served us a first rate lunch on the banks of the river with lots of hot coffee...we needed it! Afterwards a great video presentation of... More

Stayed here for a ATV trip with several buddies. The place is well equiped, it has a nice restaurant and bar. The rooms in the lodge were average, but have no TV. The place has a Hot Tub and heated pool, but you have to go through the bar to get to them, strange. There were several nights were it... More
