We had a group of 8 and did an overnight canoe trip through River & Trail Outfitters. They made the trip easy for us, providing the canoes, paddles, life jackets, maps, and suggestions of where to camp. We were dropped off at the put in point and had a fantastic 2 day trip down the river. When we arrived at... More

LOVED this place! We discovered it when we got a CertifiKid voucher and purchased two vouchers for ours sons (4 years and 6 years old.) They did the Kids' Zip Lining and had a blast! They did about 20 total runs. We then headed off to the bounce pillow where they bounced around while my husband and I kicked back... More

It was my wife's birthday. She started a tradition some time ago to go rafting on each 5 year milestone. This was her 40th and also the first time she was able to bring the kids on an actual river. Some of her more recent "rafting" trips have been attractions at amusement parks. The youngest is only 80lbs, so it... More

These guys have it all from canoeing, rafting, tubing, touring… just to name a few. Not only that - but the staff all have such incredible dispositions in personality, helpfulness and knowledge. It must have something to do with that great outdoors and the beautiful country they’re smack dab in the middle of! The overall experience was fantastic. As long... More

The river was gorgeous in the fall. But what made the trip wasn't the scenery or even the experience of the guides. What made the trip was the hospitality of our guides! I'd say with this group of guys that went above and beyond to help our team feel encouraged, educated and accomplished, that is what made it possible to... More
