Travel Directions to Magic Falls

Maine White Water Rafting Location in West Forks

DO NOT USE YOUR MOBILE GPS TO LOCATE MAGIC FALLS!!!

Too many guests have programmed 38 Dead River Road, West Forks, Maine into their systems and have ended their journey in the middle of no-where on the back side of Bigelow Mountain.  Don't become a statistic or brunt of a classic GPS joke.  Follow the driving instructions on your confirmation or call for directions.

"I have been rafting with Dave & Donna for 27 years. I have continued to stay with these folks because the are the BEST IN THE INDUSTRY! A well-run outfit with personable, knowledgeable guides who understand what it takes to make each and every run a run to remember! And if you really want to have some fun, go run Double Trouble on the Kennebec in the summertime. What is even better is watching the people you have rafted with for so long bringing their kids along for the trips now. My 4 teenage kids are TOTALLY HOOKED! They look forward to heading to Magic Falls Rafting every year now. The tradition has started. Congrats on 29 years Dave & Donna."

"Our guide was very knowledgeable, rafting Kennebec was a blast. Magic Falls runs a great operation, equipment was more decent than other companies we’ve tried in the past and our experience was very memorable."
Fivos, Boston, MA

"Magic Falls made our rafting experience absolutely perfect. Some rafting guides take you along for “their” ride where the guides at Magic Falls make the experience about their guests. Haley was extremely enthusiastic, accommodating and a pleasure to spend time with. 10/10 recommend this company!"
Kelsey

"Thank you all so much for taking care of us again this year. Zero complaints yet again and everyone had a wonderful time, including the new people. You all are the best and hope you have a strong closing to the season.
