Maine White Water Rafting Location in West Forks

"A great trip. Everybody in our two-family group, ages from 10-50, said it was the best day of the summer. We already have blood oaths and pinkie swears committing to doing it again next year."
Greg, Topsham, Maine

"We had a family outing on the Kennebec, with our Guides JJ and Molly. A true experience of a lifetime, but one that will be repeated soon! From checking in and being assigned our rafting guides and a quick but thorough instruction of our "responsibilities" on the river, off to the buses and onto the Dam. Once on the river, it was a thrill of a lifetime, one made even better by our Guides, JJ and Molly (we had two rafts...) At the end of an exciting trip a wonderful barbecue awaited some hungry rafters! All the Staff of Magic Falls were exceptional and professional but most of all lots of fun which is what we went for."
David M, Maine

"Just wanted to drop a quick note to say what a great trip we had. The double run was awesome and Chris gave us an amazing ride. Can I request him for next year now? Thanks again and see you all next year if not sooner."
Chuck, Haverhill, Mass.

"Thank you once again Magic Falls for creating this opportunity for at risk youth from Long Creek Youth Development Center! Because of your generosity, our youth had the chance to experience 2 incredible days on the river, an opportunity many would never of had otherwise. Your staff have superior knowledge and professionalism, always making our group feel welcomed, valued and safe. Truly an experience of unbelievable value. "Thank you for the memorable rafting trip. The joy on the faces of the kids was unforgettable. All of the guides did a wonderful job with the kids. Your generosity is part of the kids believing kindness is a good thing." - a quote from staff.
