Thanks. We appreciate the comments, and enjoyed having you with us. And yes, a paddle in the colors of fall is . . . well, simply stunning if you choose your day right.

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
