Spend a Day Floating Down This River in Maine for Only $30
The temperatures are heating up, and that means we'll all be looking for different ways to cool off without breaking a sweat. One of the great ways to do that in Maine is by river tubing. Everyone and their mother knows about tubing down the Saco River. In fact, everyone and their mother are probably planning their Saco trip right now. But, there are other rivers in Maine to float on that are far less busy and still offer the same peaceful relaxation as the Saco.
That's where Bethel Outdoor Adventure and Campground comes in. The company offers a hassle-free chance to float down a portion of the Androscoggin River for just $30. The price includes free parking on-site, a life jacket for your trip, and a shuttle ride to the put-in location. If price isn't a concern, there's a variety of upgrades that can be added to your trip.
This upgrades include a cooler float to place all of your refreshments in so they're readily available and chilled during your three-hour float. There's also premium floats that feature a back rest, as well as double floats so you can ride side-by-side with the person of your choice.
Additionally, if floating sounds a little too tame for you, you can do the same river trip in a kayak or stand up paddle board at differing rates. And if all of that sounds totally exhausting to you, Bethel Outdoor Adventure and Campground offers several different camping options including RV and tent sites to complete your outdoor excursion with a peaceful rest under the stars. Their 2023 season is already in full swing.
