Patty and Jeff are great. Wonderful resource. Good boats and lots of help planning and conducting a trip on the river. Also a comfortable place to camp, particularly if you have an RV.

All around excellent experience. Remodeled bathhouse made a real difference. Access to canoes and kayaks provided a fun day on the Androscoggin River.

Very roomy, lots to do, wish we had time to stay longer. The young lady that checked me was so nice. Right on the river, they offer kayaking, canoeing, sluicing, river tours, tubing, fishing. Clean facilities.

I love nature--when I have control. I have never gone tubing, and I am not all that adventurous. However, the Bethel Outdoor Adventure was precise in their instructions about which directions we should tube and the three little "boops" of rocks in the water. I...More

Thank you for taking the time to do a review. And particularly glad to hear that our 'briefing' was 'precise' and helpful. We constantly struggle with how much information to give, and how much will be retained. So this feedback helps us train our staff....More

Thanks for doing this review. Helpful. And agreed that there is no time limit. We want you to 'go with the flow' of the river, and savor it all.

You can camp here in their well maintained grounds (tenting and pull throughs) and also rent kayaks or canoes for an adventure on the river. We did the short kayak trip and wish we had chosen the longer one - it was easy and beautiful...More

Took the 10-mile trip with my college age daughter. What a great time! The water was quite high, so fast-moving and interesting. The 10-mile trip took us just over two hours. Lots of interesting islands with many choices of route. Enough fast water to be...More
