Amazing experience. Beautiful facility with hot tub and a bar for relaxing after. Healthy and delicious food. Best white water rafting guides in the State of Maine. I can't say enough good things about my experience with New England Outdoor Center. Will definitely be going back next season!!!

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 enthusiasts Matt and Wendy Polstein have unveiled the area's natural beauty and abundant adventure opportunities for more than 20 years through New England Outdoor Center.

During the early summer through fall, the Polsteins'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 Teething Puppy. Further excursions include trips on the Dead River and Kennebec River, as well as Family Float trips appropriate for kids as young as age 4. Come winter, the Polsteins rent 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.
