Maine whitewater, Marsh Stream

Waldo county, Monroe Center to West Winterport section whitewater kayaking, rafting, and paddling information.


CLASS I-II     9.5 miles
  The wonderful Waldo County scenery and the playfulness of the water are in themselves reasons enough to come here to paddle. The put-in location is a short drive from Rockland, there's a road map further down the page with more info on that. If you've been whitewater rafting and kayaking outside this state you might find the rivers here a bit more forgiving, so you'd better keep in mind that lots of rivers in this state are good for beginners.
    The Monroe Center to West Winterport section of Marsh Stream in Maine is 9.5 miles long and is a class I-II section of whitewater according to American Whitewater. Whether you're whitewater rafting or kayaking this is an
area with plenty of spots for that. You might have to settle for a hotel a bit away from the river if you want to stay the night, but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. There are a few other sections in this river system that can be paddled as well. And of course, there are campgrounds nearby. Great exercise and a chance to spend some time outdoors will make you glad you came.

Briefly about the
general area:
Swan Lake State Park is a glorious site to stretch your legs a bit, and everyone close by loves skiing at New Hermon Mountain.
