We did the Beginner trip as it was our first, and we are already hooked. Can't wait to go back and try the next level. We had a fantastic guide named Kelly, and he know the river like the back of his hand. Staff was very friendly and the whole process was smooth... It was the 2nd to the last... More

Had rafted the Arkansas as a child, was as much fun as I remembered. Plus lovely scenery, and interesting area history. I've rafted a few other rivers to date and River Rafters was a very competent outfitters. Raft was new, guide really knew his stuff and made it a fun experience, lunch was excellent as river lunches go.

Kids had never been rafting before; this trip was perfect - level 2 and 3, enough action to deliver a few momentary 'oh shoot!' episodes - just enough to get them to push their comfort level a bit -...

This was the first opportunity we had to take our three boys rafting and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. We felt like River Runners and our guide, Justin, did everything to make our trip the best it could be!

We brought a group of 12 with an age range from 9 years old to 45 years old. We did the full day rafting with beginner/intermediate level rapids. Our guides Justin & Eric were very experienced guides and took good care to make sure everyone was safe and had a fun time. My son was sick with a stomach bug... More

Justin did a fantastic job of setting us at ease. with 3 children, we were a little nervous. The trip was fantastic! We definitely recommend River Runners and will... More

The bus that took us to the launch site was not an ancient deathtrap as some are but was a rear engine diesel bus. Our... More
