Grant's Kennebago Camps Family Activities

Canoe Wildlife Adventure Trips/Moose Run

After a hearty breakfast you’ll be transported to the Upper Kennebago River. where you’ll canoe our famous “Moose Run”. You can paddle back to camp for lunch or we will be happy to pack a picnic for you. Bring your camera! Our six new, stable, family size (four 16 -footers and two 18 – footers) ABS canoes are ideal for moose watching and leisurely river and lake exploring.

Hiking & Biking

We provide the trails; you provide the get up and go! We maintain 5 miles of trails along the river for both hikers and fishermen. There are other hikes such as West Mt. or the Loop around Flat Iron and John’s Pond. Mountain Biking has fast become one of the favorite summer activities here at Grant’s. We can help you plan a one mile tour within our gate or up to a 62 mile route around the region.

Fun on the ball field

Enjoy a family game of volleyball and other games or take a picnic lunch to cook on the grills while the kids play in the grass. It’s a great place for kids and dogs to play and it’s just a stones throw away from our cabins.


Swimming is right off the dock in front of your camp, take a boat ride across the lake to picnic and swim at sandy Norton Brook Beach or boat/drive/walk to the mouth of the lake and swim on the sandy causeway beach.

Sailboating, canoes and kayaks

Sailboating, canoes and kayaks are for those who want to get real close to the water! Give it a try! If you have not tried these now is your chance to get a different view of the lake. With miles of water and no high speed power boats to contend with, it makes for an exciting afternoon in the sun. The sailboat, canoes and kayaks are FREE for our guests from July 1st through September 14th.

Take a Historical Lake Tour

Enjoy a boat ride around the perimeter of Kennebago Lake with a self guided map of historical special events, people and land marks to learn more about the uniqueness of the lake.


Wildlife is abundant in this unspoiled wilderness. Moose, deer, loon, ducks and blue heron are common sights along the river. There are spectacular sunrises and sunsets over the lake, and the best shots of all…your family and new-found friends – all Kennebago memories that will be treasured for years to come.
