We stayed at the Outpost. It was a very nice décor, very clean and affordable. They have a no-shoes policy in the house. The kitchen was fully stocked with anything you need to cook, along with an outside grill. We had such a great time we wanted to stay another night and they made it happen for us. The rafting...
