Overview

Maine's fun, safety-conscious, value-priced whitewater outfitter on the Kennebec and Dead Rivers, offering trips May 1 to Columbus Day. Magic Falls base facility offers a campground with tent sites and cabin tents, a lodge with king, queen and bunk rooms (ADA room) and a restored farmhouse sleeping 16 for family groups who wish to have all the comforts of home. The base has the area's only outdoor climbing wall along with changing rooms and showers, half court basketball, volleyball, recreation pavilion and complimentary float tubes. Magic Falls is famed for its overnight "outback adventure" that include rafting, a hike to Moxie Falls, wildlife safari, tent camping and campfire meals. Magic Falls was the first to offer a double run of the upper Kennebec Gorge for action-packed adventurers and an upper gorge 1/2 day morning trip called "Cheap Thrills"

Hi. I just read your review about Magic Falls--thank you for writing it. We just booked for this August and it sounds like a blast. I had a question about the "cabin tents". Are they ok? I think the kids will be fine--but I don't like to camp so I'm wondering if I should consider staying in the lodge. Do you know is it close to the cabin tents? I'd love your opinion. THANK YOU!
