Run of River

The Run of River project will position Skowhegan as a tourist destination and attract visitors from near and far. A recreation area situated within the downtown Kennebec River Gorge and its environs, Run of River will feature an array of water and land-based facilities, including a whitewater play park with enhanced rapids and waves for kayakers, canoeists, tubers, and stand-up paddle boarders; a comprehensive four-season trail system for hiking, biking, cross-country skiing, and more; pristine fishing waters with improved fish habitat, and an array of parks for nature-based tourism.

A strategic project designed to benefit the community, diversify the economy, and spur business development and tourism, Run of River will benefit locals and visitors alike. The project will also create opportunities for regional partnerships and packages, and bring paddlers, recreation enthusiasts, and spectators to Skowhegan and the Kennebec Valley.
