Whitewater Rafting in Maine Makes an Affordable Maine Vacation
Whitewater rafting with Crab Apple is one of the most affordable mini vacations you can take in Maine, and with the price of gas dropping below two dollars it is now more affordable than ever before. Crab Apple is excited that people’s vacation dollars may stretch further. We all know four dollar gas put a serious crimp in everyone’s budget. The 500 mile round trip to Maine burned up a lot of hard earned money in fuel. Driving on vacation is cheaper than ever.
Driving to Crab Apple in The Forks, Maine
The reasons to drive to Crab Apple Whitewater in Maine are many. The drive along RT 201 is a federally listed scenic highway, and The Forks area offers some of the most exciting and beautiful rivers and scenery in the North East. The Kennebec river contains some of the biggest whitewater around, as well as a pristine untouched wilderness gorge. Daily hydroelectric releases create large waves and provide opportunities for swimming all season.
In the Spring and Fall (enjoy the foliage), The Dead River runs at its highest releases. Continuous class 3-5 whitewater for 16 miles can’t be beat. Big continuous waves and jolting holes make for the ultimate whitewater adventure.
In addition to whitewater rafting, Crab Apple offers a lodge and restaurant on our spacious grounds. Lodging options range from basic hotel type accommodations to cabins with multiple units. There is also a full scale restaurant, pub, outdoor heated pool and Jacuzzi. Paintball and Moose Safaris are available in the evenings, and if you feel like driving further, there is also a scenic overlook and 90 foot waterfall to visit within 15 miles. Take the time and spend the money to drive to Maine and raft The Kennebec or Dead River. The drive is worth it, the gas costs less, and you won’t be disappointed.
