North Country Rivers Adventure

It's all about the location...and North Country Rivers has it all. We were looking for a place to go white water rafting in Maine but did not want the hastle of renting a car and driving a couple hours to get there and back. We landed on the grass strip at North Country - rock solid strip 2000' x 200' and well maintained. The strip is just along the river and there are camp sites and log cabins available for rent right there in view of your plane. Although there were only 2 of us, they rented us a cabin that sleeps 24! The cabins are well appointed and clean - we lacked nothing.

The white water rafting office was right there in the main pavillion in the same location as Patricks Pub and the cabin check-in. They collected us right there and transported us to the dam where the river rafting adventure began for 1/2 day on the Kennebac River; only to drop us right back where we started. We finished our evening with lobster soup; burgers and sweet potato fried. The soup was amazing. I could hardly get the spoon in as the chunks of lobster were overflowing from the bowl.

If you are looking for a nice get-away spot; a fly-in location and a great meeting spot, I highly recommend North Country Rivers. Come with your friends and stay for the adventure - you will not be disappointed.
