We are also close to a variety of designated wilderness areas. Baxter State Park offers hundreds of miles of hiking trails. The Debsconeag Lakes Wilderness Region is just minutes from our doorstep.

Summer guests enjoy the use of our kayaks and canoes as part of their stay. Millinocket Lake offers wonderful swimming and paddling – all with a spectacular view of Mount Katahdin.

Sometimes getting out of the office is the best way to generate new ideas and celebrate accomplishments. Let our hard-working staff assist you in preparing an event that will exceed your expectations. Have your next corporate outing at the New England Outdoor Center in Maine.
You'd be surprised how quickly a rafting trip down the rushing waters of a Maine river can bond coworkers and develop team building skills. Let one of our experienced whitewater guides take your office staff down some of the most thrilling water in the state. They'll learn how to paddle together, when to hold on and how to navigate in a strong current. Who knows, maybe this teamwork thing will catch on back at the office.
And team building can happen in winter also - one of our most popular corporate experiences are our snowmobile trips and getaway packages for groups. This is an essential part of team building for the year for some of our biggest customers, who come back year after year with their co-workers to experience the Maine woods on our snowmobiles.
