The New England Outdoor Center's Mission Is:
To rekindle your spirit of adventure, to help you explore the outdoors with a level of service and amenities that exceed your expectations, to foster understanding and respect for the responsible shared use of the Maine woodlands, one of our greatest natural resources, and to provide a New England vacation experience that you won't soon forget. If you have a trip that you are planning or a Maine Woods Experience that you are interested in planning, contact us and we will help put you trip in action. Every year thousands of NEOC guests experience The Maine Woods right here with us. Many people experience "firsts' with us - first time in a canoe or Kayak, first time on an overnight camping trip, first time to raft the Penobscot River, first time back country skiing or snowmobiling. Whether it is your first experience or your hundredth, we are here to help.
