We had a great time, one boat for all 6 of us and we planned ahead this year and brought our super soakers. That was a good call as many people floating planned ahead as well and even if we didn't have lots of water...More

The water was low, but we still had fun! The employees were nice and seemed to be enjoying themselves. The most exciting part was the very end, where the water runs faster than anywhere else on the river. Most of the trip was relaxing and...More

This was a lot of fun and very well run. Everyone was extremely helpful and nice. Not much water this year, so we're happy we were able to raft during the 3 weeks they were open.

This was a great adventure. Everything was so well organized from parking, checking in and getting back up river. Staff was very friendly. We took this trip with 3 adults and 2 six year olds and everything was fine!! My kids had a blast!!

I was looking forward to a leisurely float trip. Unfortunately, due to the drought, it is closed-most likely for the summer. There was only a few puddles where a few years ago when we visited, there was several feet of water.

This is one activity you can personalize any way you want. You can float down the river as fast or as slow as you want. You can pull over and have a picnic and a swim. You can even take a nap. Spend all day...More

This trip would have been better if we left our dogs in our camper. We have two hunting dogs that would not stay in the raft with all the ducks and geese. Awesome scenery and super clear water, lots of fish to see with Polaroid...More
