What Other Are Saying

We took the Penobscot River Tour in August of 2014 and would absolutely recommend it for those who want a nice day of adventure.

The NEOC guides took very good care of our group.

Booked a weekend at New England Outdoor Center with a cabin at Twin Pines and a day of river rafting. An excellent experience from start to finish. Our cabin on picturesque Millinocket Lake was very clean, spacious and well appointed. The restaurant at the lodge is very good with an emphasis on locally sourced produce and there are canoes and kayaks for use by the guests and small runabouts for rent which we used to take advantage of the rather good fishing in the lake.
