Augusta and Kennebec are heaven for rafting, camping, fishing, and hunting

This central section of Maine is for people who love the outdoors and are eager to get their hands and boots wet or dirty enjoying it. White water rafting and canoeing are popular in the famous The Forks, where the Dead and Kennebec rivers join. Snowmobiling is very popular in the long winters. Lodging is at campgrounds or copy waterfront and lakefront resorts. Augusta, the state capital and gateway to the region, has a great children’s museum for visiting and local families, and the entertainment is enthusiastic at Johnson Hall Performing Arts Center in the town of Gardiner.

Family Owned and Operated Whitewater Rafting Business

Crab Apple has whitewater action on the dam controlled Kennebec and Dead Rivers in scenic Maine. Daily rafting trips for family fun and adventure start on the Kennebec with Class 3 and 4 waves and exciting rapids. Rafting on the Dead River includes water that runs at two levels - intermediate Class 3 and extra thrilling Class 3, 4 and sometimes 5. Younger kids will love the rides in a raft and will be instructed to "hold on" while guides row the rafts through the biggest waves. Base camp offers lodging, a pub and restaurant, and the outdoor and heated pool. Still need to burn off some energy? Step onto the four Rapid Shot Paintball fields day after rafting!
