Maine Whitewater Rafting on the Dead River


One-Day Dead River White Water Adventures – Rafting Trips Have it All

From just below Grand Falls to the confluence with the Kennebec River in The Forks, the Dead River offers more continuous white water rafting than any other river in the east. You will be challenged for 15 miles by turbulent waves and exciting Class III and IV whitewater rapids with names like Mine Field, Mile Long, Elephant Rock, and Poplar Hill Falls. After your white water rafting adventure enjoy a hearty cookout of steak,  chicken, fish, or veggie burger accompanied by stir-fried rice, homemade salad and cookies, hot chocolate, water or lemonade back at the Adventure Center. After your meal, relax in the comforts of our Main Lodge and relive the day’s white water rafting adventure with a photo and video presentation.
