Had dinner and breakfast at Patrick's, the only place in Bingham with a liquor license. The food was great. We rafted the Dead river with another group of 4. Our guide Mike was amazing.

My husband and I went white water rafting with North Country Rivers in August. I was very nervous as it was my first rafting experience. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and made me feel comfortable. The rafting was level 3 and 4 level rapids and we went at a good pace and got pretty wet. My only complaint... More

My friends and I have not stopped talking about this weekend. The trip exceeded every expectation/hope I had for a much needed summer day. Our guide was amazing, as all the guides appeared to be. I wish I could be there every weekend and the trip energized me in ways I didn't expect. Thank you North Country!

12 miles white water rafting trip down Kennebec river. From the moment to leave the gathering spot and get your gear, you are in for a great day on the water. Class 2,3,and 4 rapids. Great guides on the river, very well trained to assist all. Highly recommended.
