KAYAKING & CANOEING
The gentle current of the Saco River provides the perfect setting to try the popular sport of kayaking. It is easy to do and is fun for the whole family or group. If on a canoe camping trip, we highly recommend also bringing a kayak along. A kayak paddles smoothly and cuts through the water with ease, both downstream and upstream. Take turns in the kayak, and you’ll see why this is such an exciting and popular sport. Fun for children and adults alike, you’ll be glad that you have a kayak as you glide through the water!
“…Gentle thy Saco’s tides that creep and croon,
Lapsing and lingering through hushed forest realms
Which love the song bird’s boon.” Fryeburg by Rev. Henry Bernard Carpenter (1840-1890)
