  If you're coming from Augusta-Waterville it's not a long drive at all to the put-in location, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you wonít get lost. The wonderful Maine scenery and the cool fresh water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. Getting your paddling muscles activated and a chance to spend some time outdoors are great attractions for lots of people. This is one of a small number
    of paddling sections in this river system, there are a few others too. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. The average Maine whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be easier to run than those in other states,
so if you're visiting here do keep in mind that rivers in this state are not as hard as elsewhere. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have to drive a bit to get to one, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. This section is long enough for an overnight trip if you take your time, so pack your sleeping bag. Since you're on this site you are probably into whitewater rafting or kayaking, either way around  
here you'll find a large number of good rivers.
