The Dead River has the longest most continuous stretch of whitewater in New England. Big whitewater is released only 10 times a year and making this 16-mile stretch of Maine river extremely exhilarating and perfect for thrill-seekers. The Dead River comes alive when spring run-off causes flooding and also in the fall when the lakes are drawn down to get ready for winter. During the fall, guests can also enjoy the spectacular fall foliage. However, we believe that anytime you’re on the Dead River it’s guaranteed fun.
