The trip was great, wish I had paid more attention to the dates - unfortunately I thought the groupon was good until the end of the summer, it was actually only good until the end of June so we ended up paying the full rate.

It's a LONG drive, so likely never would have gone to this business. But after having the tour there, the course they had planned, and the energy and experience of the guides, this is definitely a great place to go white water rafting. Likely to get a larger group next time and go again. thx!

I had a great time white water rafting with New England Outdoor Center! The staff was friendly and knowledgable! Would definitely go back for another visit!

About New England Outdoor Center

The northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail lies at the foot of Mount Katahdin. Beneath the mountain's silhouette, moose graze along the shorelines, and eagles roam the skies above Baxter State Park's chromatic woods. Nearby, outdoorsmen and environmental enthusiast Matt Polstein has unveiled the area's natural beauty and abundant adventure opportunities for more than 30 years through the New England Outdoor Center.

During the early summer through fall, Polstein’s team leads whitewater-rafting adventures on the Penobscot River. The raucous waterway possesses a stretch that drops 70 feet per mile through a narrow, granite-walled canyon into Class V rapids with monikers such as Exterminator and Cribworks. Further excursions include trips on the Family Float trips appropriate for kids as young as age 4. Come winter, Polstein rents snowmobiles so guests can zoom across the area's powdery expanses, perhaps to catch a view of the Northern Lights.

In addition to the plentiful year-round activities, New England Outdoor Center encompasses dining and lodging facilities, including cabins, green-built guesthouses, and campgrounds.
