Sunday River is uniquely located within a natural recreational playground.
The Western Maine region offers plenty of activities throughout the year. Winter options include cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice skating and snow shoeing. Within just a short drive, hikers will find endless possibilities in local state parks as well as the nearby White Mountain National Forest, including the Appalachian Trail. The Androscoggin River and the Sunday River both offer great fly fishing, canoeing, kayaking, tubing and a variety of local swimming holes. The access to outdoor recreation is unrivaled – loved by guests who explore it and appreciated by the locals who call Western Maine home.
Just a few miles from the resort base is the town of Bethel, a charming New England village alive with dining, shopping and antiquing options. The Book "101 Best Outdoor Towns: Unspoiled Places to Visit, Live and Play," published in 2007 by veteran outdoor writers Sarah Tuff and Greg Melville, ranked Bethel, Maine as the only New England town in its overall top ten of nationwide locales.
