Love going to the river and having a picnic or just getting away from the world and relaxing. There are several places along the river to pull off and enjoy the view and sounds of nature. Some places can get rough and others are calm enough to float. A great place to throw in a line and waste the day... More

An absolutely picturesque mountain river. Something to do for everyone. My family played on the sand bar and rock garden while others fished and rafted. A must see.

No nonsense services for AT hikers, including lodging, transportation, gear. Highly recommend! Johnny is spot on with his recommendations around town. He serves as a much needed go-between for hikers and what Erwin has to offer.

With the river flowing less than 500cfm rafting was difficult and less challenging than we would have liked. Every raft in our group got stuck at least once and... More

We stayed at the facility as well as rafted with them. It was a lot of fun. If you have time go on the cave trip they offer tooo. It not just a walk through cave but an actual caving experience.
