The campground was clean, quiet and peaceful. The rental canoe trip was fun and easy. The wire bridge across the river to the island was really cool, too! Can't forget the bucket of tailings we brought home to "mine" at a later date! Great place, great people great fun! Thank you for a great time. We will be back! Dottie... More

I've been going here for more than 10 years with a great group of friends. This place is wonderful, they give us a great rate for the group camp site. Always lots of fun. Can wait until our trip this year.

They also can get you on a great section of... More

We visited without a reservation to go kayaking. There were not four slots of the ride in the van to go up-river and paddle down but the great staff offered another option. We were able to take two kayaks and launch them from the site and take a trip downriver. The staff provided a map and gave us options to... More

This was the first place I ever kayaked, and it was a blast. You can stop on one of the many islands along the way, take a break and have lunch. Excellent views of surrounding mountains. Great for beginners!

We caught up on our lives real quick and they proceeded to tell us about the adventures we can go on. At... More

4 years ago we kayaked with our kids, then aged 7 and 9. River was easy to negotiate and scenery beautiful! This time around went tubing with them (now 11 and 14) and took the grandparents in their 70s. Stopped off twice on little islands. Had floating cooler too for drinks. Really pleasant afternoon. Staff are very friendly and accommodating.... More

I went with my family; two of us are in our 20s and my parents are in their 50s. It's been pouring for the past few days, so the river was faster than usual and we barely had to paddle. Our 2 hr tour finished early but we were on our own so you can stop and swim or land... More
