Dead River Expeditions & Down River Expeditions

Dead River Expeditions and Down River Expeditions, or DRE, is now two locations, for twice the fun!

Dead River Expeditions, 2502 US Route 201 in The Forks, is our location for White Water Rafting. We run every day from May through September. Visit our website for special high-water days on both the Kennebec River and the Dead River. Each rafting trip includes a hardy BBQ lunch. We also have a beautiful secluded campsite, or we can recommend one of the cozy nearby lodges! This is the place to go for family fun! Call us at 1-877-301-2040.

Down River Expeditions, 189 North Avenue in Skowhegan, is our second location. We feature kayak, stand up paddle board and mountain bike rentals. Skowhegan offers many beautiful biking trails, access to the lower Kennebec River for kayaking or paddle boarding, and a beautiful beach and boat launch at Lake George Regional Park. Our in-town location also has a cool retail store with souvenirs or last-minute equipment for your adventures. Call us at 207-858-4040.

Both locations also offer guided fishing trips. Want a multi-day adventure? Call us and we can help you plan a trip that includes a little bit of everything.
