My husband booked this trip for me as it was on my bucket list, and I'm so glad he did. We had a great time. I was nervous, but the guides were very knowledgeable and quick to react if someone fell out of the boat (only 1 person on our boat fell out, and they were in the front)...Lunch was... More

Went up with a bunch of guys to celebrate my future brother in laws freedom for a few months longer. We stayed in the cabin tents which weren't bad for the price, how little we were in them, and the fact that they're cabin tents. The main lodge was great, with delicousfood, beer brewed in house, and amazing service. The... More

This was our third trip to Northern Outdoors for rafting and kayaking, our group has grown to 26 family and friends. Everyone loved the rafting, kayaking, the brewery, and hanging out at the campfire with no phones or wifi. Our group ranged in age from 75 to 16 and all voted we had a great four days. Accommodations are rustic... More

We just had 25 people here for 3 nights spread among 4 cabins. We rafted, kayaked and had a family dinner at the lodge. Great, friendly staff, there when we needed them out of the way when we didn't. Brewery on site was a nice touch. Good quality lunch on the raft trip. Good spot for groups and kids.

Rated with my 12 year old daughter & her friend. Ashley was our guide, she was awesome! The girls said she was the greatest! Thank you to Ashley for a terrific raft down the Kennebec, and making a unforgettable memory for me and my daughter.

We had an amazing stay. We didn't go rafting but have been previously. We went to visit our friends who work with Northern Outdoors. Love the new location. We took kids to watch our friend raft the river. All guides and bus driver are friendly! We look forward to visiting again!!

The rafting trip was a marvel of organization and fun. Breathtaking wilderness while enjoying the comfort of a cozy cabin and the main lodge. I never write reviews (of anything) due to basic laziness and apathy. I chose to write one here for the first time because the Northern Outdoors folks deserve to be recognized for a job well done.

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.
