We had Toni as a guide and she hit a rock and dumped me in the river. I hit many rocks suffered a lot of bumps and bruises. She struggled to get me back in the boat and needed another boats assistance. Good time just don't get female guide.

We took our two nephews from Indiana on the upper rafting trip today. We all had a wonderful and exciting white water rafting trip. Our guides name was Bundy and he was exceptional and made our trip so enjoyable. He had about 20 years of experience and you could tell he knew exactly how to make the rafting trip fun... More

Had a great rafting experience with this company! Our group of 9 had to split up, which we expected. Luckily both groups had great guides. Our teens had Jason with the pink helmet & loved him!! He made their trip very fun. My group had Luther, he was also a great guide. We did the family float trip since we... More

Just had a great rafting trip today with our awesome guide, Heather! She made sure our entire group had the best time, and was very knowledgeable about the area. This is the third time we've gone rafting here, and this was our best experience yet! Thanks, Heather!! We had so much fun!

We also took advantage of the ropes course and zip lining. Facilities were in very good condition and all staff was friendly. Great value for the $. If we visit the area again,... More

Do the upper river trip - it is great for teenagers but there were much smaller children there as well. The scenery is magnificent!

Our raft guide was very knowledgeable and friendly! We very much enjoyed our rafting trip, although it was less challenging than we had hoped. Great for first time rafters, but the class IIIs and IVs were usually only a couple of waves, and were spaced out between long stretches of floating. If you're experienced and/or looking for a challenge, I... More
