Maine whitewater, Crooked River

Oxford Cumberland county, Scribners Mill to US 302 section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS II-III     15 miles
My sister and I put in just below eddes falls this summer and kayaked all the way to sebago lake. Nice trip. Says Lynda

My friend Dan and I ran part of this section last summer. Instead of putting in at Scribner's Mill, we launched from Edes Falls, just above the Rapids. It was a good inroduction to whitewater. Dan flipped within the first five minutes, but being that the water is relatively shallow, he did little more than get wet
    on a hot summers day. The Route 302 bridge is a logical pull out spot. There is a large mass of debris blocking passage of the river there. The only tricky part is that the walls of the riverband are steep and slippery,
so it helps to have someone with you for the portage. Says Corey

The natural beauty of Oxford Cumberland County and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water have people coming here. This stretch of Crooked River in Maine is 15 miles long and is a class II-III section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. This is not the only paddling section in this river system, there are others too. If you've been whitewater rafting
and kayaking outside Maine you might find the rivers here a bit more manageable, so you'd better keep in mind that many of the rivers in this state are not very demanding. Some people prefer whitewater rafting and some kayaking, either way around here you'll find a large number of good places. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. The put-in location is a short drive from Portland-South Portland, please print out a copy of the road map further down the page so you won’t get lost. You can enjoy this section more if you take your time, so go ahead and pack your camp stove.
