  The wonderful Maine scenery and the beautiful way the water current moves down the stream will make you feel great. If you're coming from Bangor it's not a long drive at all to the starting location, as you can see on the road map further down. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in this state tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so better not forget that quite a few of the sections in this state are pretty easy. There
    are campgrounds quite near the river where you can camp. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way there are lots of good rivers for that around here. This river system is
full of great paddling sections, the Denbow Peat Mine to Sprague Falls 1 section is just one of them. The Denbow Peat Mine to Sprague Falls 1 section of Narraguagus River - West Branch is 14 miles long and it is classified as a class II-III section by American Whitewater. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but you'd better reserve in advance because these hotels fill up quick. If you  
have the time you can make this a two day trip, so go ahead and pack your sleeping bag.

Briefly about the general area:
Enjoy a lazy day on the beach at Black Beach, and nearby you hit upon the Lead Mountain Trail which is a good hiking trail. You're sure to bump into some friendly folks from Cherryfield here, and nothing beats kicking back at Schoodic Beach. This river is so wonderful.
