We had been thinking of doing this for a while and are glad we took the plunge with RIverRun Rafting. Our guide on our Big Boat was Gywn and he made sure everyone on board had the opportunity to experience the excitement of the rapids. We were told the water levels are higher in the spring and can't wait to... More

Lodging: There were lots of accommodation options from lodges to camping. We took over the entire camping cabin area. Cabins are simple and rustic ..bunk... More

We went as a family of 4, 2 young teens and two adults. Because our teens are not 16 we did the 12 man Adventure raft. It was great. Our guide made us feel like the best rafters out there, we had a lot of fun and it was a full day outing. We would do it all again. Great... More

We were there for a 2 night getaway. The grounds are cute and pretty well set up. There are basketball courts, volley ball net, pool, air hockey, table tennis, and a beach. There is also a small pub on site but booze is cheaper at the brewery down the road and also has a restaurant. RiverRun has one giant fire... More

Hello First sorry to hear that you did not go rafting and enjoy the adventure experience you paid for. It's important to point out that the accommodations in question are never misrepresented to be more than what they are - a dry lockable space and the most basic of a wide range of accommodation types we have here at RiverRun....

My husband and I visited River Run last weekend to celebrate our 33rd anniversary. We stayed 2 nights in the River Inn on site, rafted all day Saturday and left after breakfast on Sunday. The entire experience was top notch! Our accommodation in the "Yellow Room" at the inn was spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable. The room had a lovely... More

We booked a 6 man raft months ago and as the time got close I was getting very nervous and was seriously thinking of backing out completely or switching from a 6 man to a 12 man as it well known that the 6 man will flip. Our group age average is 50 so we are no spring chickens....but we... More

Bar none the best. The 165 acre resort is clean. Several choices of camping, accommodations and a very friendly staff. Lots of activities included. People gravitate to be social in the resort environment. The rafting is awesome with a very high level of safety. I would go back without question. I want to thank our river guide Graham for making... More
