    About Kennebec Valley Region
    Visiting the Valley

    The Kennebec Valley is the widest north-south region of Maine, covering more than 5,000 square miles.

    The valley's Kennebec River is 170 miles long and starts in Moosehead Lake and rolls into the Atlantic Ocean.

    The world-class rapids of the Dead River feature the longest stretch of Class III to V whitewater in the East. The sixteen-mile masterpiece reaches its crescendo at Big Poplar Falls and the confluence with the Kennebec River.

    The many lakes of the area offer exceptional outdoor recreation opportunities. There's an activity for everyone to enjoy, including boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, biking, camping, hunting, bird watching, and incredible sightseeing.

    Other outdoor options to explore are traversing ancient peaks on the Appalachian Trail, taking in the sights of Moxie Falls, and experiencing an exhilarating run on the highest groomed snowmobile trail in the state.

    If a city trip sounds better, the state capital of Augusta is the perfect spot for a daycation. The city has attractions, activities, and amenities to make life easy and exciting. From a relaxing historic adventure to a night out on the town, there's something to interest all visitors.

    Finding a lake home property in this region will give you the best of both worlds: a secluded lake paradise with the convenience of big cities when needed!
