Saco Canoe Rental is about a 2 ½ hour drive from Boston but this is time well spent. From speedy rapids to slow glides along the river with one one of these floating next to you(yes, they rent them on site), these guys have different tubing options to accommodate any mood/group. No need to bring extra cars, your own tubes or anything really, they’ve got it all covered, even the rope swings along the river!
Unless you are the kind of person who loves 2 ½ hour drives after spending the entire day relaxing on the river, plan to stay overnight. Camping along the Saco is actually free so if you are that kind of group, go for it.
If you prefer to have a few amenities, Fiddlehead Campground is the choice for you. The campsites are located along the river and it’s quite a bit less rowdy than some of the other whitewater rafting campgrounds in the area, which tend to be more bender-oriented on summer weekends.
