Family vacation in Maine

When it comes to family vacations in Maine, few experiences can match the excitement and adventure of white water rafting with Adventure Bound. Nestled in the scenic heart of Caratunk, Maine just south of The Forks, Adventure Bound offers a unique blend of thrilling activities, beautiful landscapes, and family-friendly amenities that make for an unforgettable vacation.

Rafting the Kennebec River

The centerpiece of your Adventure Bound experience is the white water rafting trip on the Kennebec River. Known for its exhilarating Class III and IV rapids, the Kennebec River offers just the right mix of excitement and safety for families. Our experienced, Registered Maine Guides will ensure that everyone, from kids to adults, has a fantastic time navigating the rapids and enjoying the stunning scenery. This one-day adventure includes a riverside BBQ lunch and the option to paddle inflatable kayaks on the lower, flat-water section of the river. It’s a perfect way to spend a day bonding with family and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Overnight 2-Day Rafting Trip

For those looking for a remote camping adventure, our overnight 2-day rafting trip is the perfect option. Spend two days on the rivers, experiencing both the thrill of the rapids and the tranquility of the calmer sections. At night, camp under the stars at our remote site on Indian Pond, where our guides will set up tents, prepare meals, and even heat up a wilderness sauna for a relaxing end to an action-packed day.

Hiking to Moxie Falls

Beyond rafting, Adventure Bound offers plenty of other activities to keep the whole family entertained. One highlight is a self-guided hike to Moxie Falls. This stunning waterfall, one of the highest in New England, is just a short drive from our base camp. The hike is manageable for all ages and offers breathtaking views of the falls and surrounding forest, making it a perfect family outing.

Dining Options in the Area

After a day of adventure, treat your family to some delicious local cuisine. The Kennebec River Brewery, located nearby, serves up craft beers and hearty meals in a relaxed atmosphere. Another great option is The Hawks Nest Lodge, where you can enjoy a variety of dishes while taking in the beautiful views of the Dead River. These dining spots offer the perfect way to unwind and refuel after a day of outdoor fun.

Exploring Moosehead Lake

If you’re looking to explore even more of Maine’s natural beauty, consider a scenic drive to Moosehead Lake in Greenville.
