The Town of Jim Thorpe is a fascinating blend of high-end works of art, Huge church steeples, historic mansions, delicious food, a fascinating history, and incredible views. The town was named for Jim Thorpe, a super athlete of his day. It is also a horrifying look at a shameful part of our history: the virtual enslavement of those who worked... More

We took the shortest raft trip with two inexperienced 11-year-olds and we all had a Lot of fun. First off: All the staff were friendly, energetic, and helpful. The facilities were clean and Not overcrowded (on Labor Day Weekend, no less). Even the transport buses were clean and didn’t have that funky river stink. More importantly, the buses were waiting...

Jim Thorpe River Adventures provided a fun day of whitewater rafting while we were camping in the area. They really focus on safety here so it's suitable for beginners and families with young kids. Before you begin, life jackets are handed out and wearing them is mandatory when you're on the water. A safety orientation is also given to emphasize... More

This was our group's first and last rafting trip to JT Rafts in the Poconos. We were celebrating my 29th birthday and were looking to have an enjoyable and stress free day. Instead, we were treated like 3rd graders being told stop every 20 minutes, paddle in single file and listen to endless instructions. Things didn't start smoothly as the... More

Jerry and his guides were professional, efficient and completely organized. They were relaxed and funny, but with safety first. They made this experience just wonderful. We'll be back!!

What a wonderful outing we had. The 12 of us ( 8 adults, 1 teen, 2 preteens and one 8 yr. old ) couldn't have had a better time. After donning our life jackets and photo op-ing, we gathered around our head guide AJ for safety instructions, gathered our bail buckets and headed to the bus. During our 20 minute... More

We just did the intro to white water on June 14th we had wanted to do the Class 3 but the river wasn't up enough. I have no complaints as they fit us in on the schedule when we stopped on Friday after we knew the weather forecast. If you are expecting a tour guide in your raft there isn't... More
