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.

"While these last few months have been trying times of adjustment for all of us, we are anxiously awaiting word that rafting season is a go for this year. It looks as though we will be able to put a group together for our annual trip down the Kennebec. We look forward to seeing all of you and spending what has become our favorite weekend of the year at Magic Falls. Every time we bring someone who is new to rafting they leave absolutely impressed with the professionalism and knowledge of all your staff and the family like courtesy that is extended to our group year after year. We look forward to a return to normal everyday activities and seeing all of you. Thank you for all you do for us year in and year out.

"Bravo to Magic Falls Rafting! We took my 19/16 year old kids. The whole place was so impressive, great lunch, awesome guides, great pictures."

"We had a blast! Our guide kept us safe and happy! We were able to get in and ride the rapids a couple times. We had cool challenges and it was very exciting! Afterwards we returned to base camp for lunch, the steak was very tender and blueberry crumb cake was delicious. We would do this trip over and over again!"

"We feel like we’re visiting family when we’re there.
I’ve come back every year since 2000 (17 years) and have never rafted with anyone else. Guests I’ve brought over the years have only had good things to say about the service and experience we get from Magic Falls Rafting Co.
Some of those guests had previously rafted with other outfits and have said they’d only raft with Magic Falls again.
