The Allagash was our Nation’s first river to receive the “Wild and Scenic Rivers” designation. Understandably Maine’s most famous canoe trip, the Allagash is in many ways the most representative of its canoe country. It is rich in wildlife such as moose, otter, eagle and osprey and historic artifacts from the river logging era.
The rapids are beginner level, and the only portage is around the spectacular 50 ft. Allagash Falls. We choose to paddle the Allagash at times of the year that avoid the crowds and the bugs. We travel 4-5 hours by canoe each day, but there is usually ample time at camp for swimming, fishing, reading or just plain relaxing. Campsites are comfortable with outhouses, picnic tables and a stone fire pit.
Our standard Allagash trip is 6 days and we put in below Chase Rapids (class II) and we take out in Moosetown, otherwise known as Allagash Village.
