Go Your Own Way

Maine’s Kennebec Valley offers easy access to popular outdoor summer activities like camping, whitewater rafting, hiking, paddling, and world-class fishing. While the region's cities and towns offer locally created foods, brews, arts, events, and history.

The region, which includes both Kennebec and Somerset counties, takes its name from the mighty Kennebec River—the true heart of this spectacular area.
