It snowed in October, and it never left. It was an awesome winter, to say the least. But, now that the days are getting longer and the snow is melting, we are ready to shift gears to think SUMMER, SUMMER, SUMMER!

We are getting geared up to reopen May 3rd at 2pm for our first Kennebec River trip on Saturday May 4th (more important spring dates below).  Whether you raft, ATV, hike, bike, or just like to relax, The Forks area is truly a hidden gem of Maine. 

 

Bachelor(ette) Parties!
Whitewater rafting, lazy river float, on-site brewery, glamping, ATVing, hiking, or simply relaxing...there are SO many things to do here. Need more convincing?  Here are 6 reasons you should throw your bachelorette party with us. Read reviews from others, explore our website, or call us at (207) 663-4466.
