  Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in Maine tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so better not forget that a lot of the rivers in this state are suitable for beginners. The put-in location is a short drive from Bangor, if you're not familiar with the area there's a road map further down the page. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an area with plenty of rivers for that. Getting a good workout and just
    hanging out with mother nature will have you coming back for more. There are so many stretches to paddle in this river system, the Kenduskeag to Route 15 stretch is just one of many. You might have to settle for a hotel
a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, and if you make reservations in advance you're all set. If you're a camper you can camp at one of the great campgrounds nearby. The beautiful scenery of Maine and the cool fresh water will make you feel great. This is a pretty decent length section, it's perfect for a one day trip.
