The Most Whitewater in the East

Long before Europeans came to this area, a long, flat river from the Northwest met The Kennebec at The Forks: twisting and turning through what is today called Maine. Winding through the majestic mountains from Canada, it was used by Native Americans for navigation because it was calm except for one 16-mile stretch just above The Forks. That section has the most continuous whitewater in the Northeast, that today makes for some amazing whitewater rafting!

Dead River Rafting releases are always considered a special event here at Three Rivers Whitewater and are only run at certain times throughout the season. This 16-mile stretch of rapids get bigger and better as the day goes on and provides the most continuous whitewater the northeast has to offer. Our staff of Registered Maine Guides pride themselves on their knowledge of the many rapids and play spots on the river.
