We booked them to shuttle us to the bicycle trail head just south of town so we could leave our cars and ride 20 miles south to Fort Cooper and bicycle camp overnight. Perfect trip and they did a great job so we did not have to worry about our cars left on the road side or an unattended park... More

Super nice ladies and so very helpful with area information. They have a shuttle service for those of us who have our own equipment. River is easy to navigate and beautiful. So easy to paddle right back to their property and load up and leave.

I often forget how people make a difference. Although the weather was overcast and we were a few days before Christmas, the staff were very friendly and helpful. They truly enjoyed their jobs and it showed!

Had a kayak each and paddled up to the spring and down to the canoe and kayak landing; think that was 8 or 9 miles in all. The water is crystal clear. We saw an otter on the bank - that was a really big animal! Also shoals of big and small fish, lots of birds and turtles. HIghly recommended.

Everyone is so friendly and helpful! We had a tandem kayak, the price was fair. it must have been their slow season because there were not many people on the water, it was perfect. I can't wait to go back!

Carrie told us we'd want to swim but at 72 degrees, I thought "nah"-well she was right! The water was just so inviting! We went upriver first and we had no issues with the strenuousness level. Going downstream was so easy and fun! We had 6 teens with 6 adults and everyone enjoyed it as much as the next person.... More

I have been with Rainbow River Canoe and Kayak before with scout groups and they have always been terrific. This week, I met up with friends we have not seen in many years who were down from TN. We all loved the service and friendliness of this company. Everyone was super. I can't imagine using any other outfitter on this... More

All the guys that work with RRC&K rental are absolutely the best. We had the best time floating the river from where we let out onto the river. We went up to the spring head and floated back down the river, stopping at several of the points of interest that Kerri pointed out. Be sure to see the different springs... More
