Perfect Weekend Getaway: Go Whitewater Rafting on the Kennebec River in Maine

If you thought that whitewater rafting on the Kennebec River was a one-day event, you should forget everything you thought you knew about whitewater rafting. Well, maybe not everything, but with Crab Apple, you are getting a full vacation. We have luxurious lodging options, delicious food and drinks, and even a pool and hot tub—all in addition to the some of the best whitewater rafting in Maine. If you have a free weekend, we can provide everything you need to make it your most memorable getaway yet.


Lodging to Write Home About

Whether you are looking for a romantic Jacuzzi suite for an anniversary or a spacious cabin for a family reunion, we have exactly what you need at our Kennebec River base camp in Maine. No matter which type of accommodations you choose, you will be treated to a free hot breakfast buffet to give you plenty of energy for your whitewater rafting trip. You will also get free internet access if you must work, but we suggest keeping your laptop and phone turned off so you can fully enjoy everything that the Kennebec River has to offer.

Whitewater Rafting to Remember for a Lifetime

When you want to experience a full weekend on the Kennebec River, our multi-day whitewater rafting trips in Maine will keep you active and entertained. We have several weekend options, but these two seem to be the most popular:
  • High Adventure Package – This whitewater rafting excursion will give you two full days of heart-pounding rapids, rolling waves, and gasp-inducing drops. On day one you will raft the Kennebec River, and on day two we will head to the Dead River. Overall, you will experience 28 intense miles of the best whitewater rafting in Maine.
  • Two Day Upper Gorge – Not everyone is able to stay a full two days due to other commitments, which is why we created this one-and-a-half-day whitewater rafting trip on the Kennebec River. The first day is a complete whitewater rafting experience through the exhilarating rapids of the Kennebec River (which includes lunch!), and the second day will provide a quick jaunt on the Upper Gorge, so you can still get home before bedtime.

Activities to Complete Your Kennebec River Vacation

Just because the whitewater rafting is over, that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. If you still want some more action, you can grab your loved ones and head to one of our four themed paintball fields. Dressed in camo, with your paintball guns in tow, you will battle it out old-school style.  Once the victor has emerged, your day can begin winding down.

Enjoy a soak in our hot tub, take a calming swim in our outdoor pool, or enjoy some delicious food and refreshing beverages at our full restaurant and pub. And if you are feeling up for a late-afternoon stroll, a spectacular view of the highest waterfall in Maine just happens to be a hop, skip, and a jump away from our base camp.

Incredible, adrenaline-inducing whitewater rafting, cozy lodging, delectable food, activities to entertain kids of all ages, and stunning views of the Kennebec River—what more could you want in a weekend getaway? We can’t think of anything. Plan your adventure today before we are filled to capacity, because it’s bound to happen soon.
