We always have an awesome experience here every time we come and this time was no different. USA rafting is the best place to go for a fun trip with family and friends. The staff is great, and all of the raft guides are awesome. This year our guide was Ewok, and he made this year's trip better than any... More

I have taken different family and friends rafting with USA Raft for the past five years. Each year I bring a few new guests. The staff is always wonderful. I have never had a bad experience with them nor have I witnessed others having any issues. This year . There were four of us, all who had previously rated the... More

This was the first time that my daughter and I had been rafting. Had a great time, even though I was a little nervous b/c I had had some motion sickness in the past. Ewok (Chris) was great telling us what to do, telling us history about the area and just making the trip fun and enjoyable. My daughter was... More

Our white water experience was completely awesome. Not only did some of our group do it for the very first time and have a great experience, but the veterans that have gone before had an even better experience than with other companies that they've gone with. Our guide, Ewok, was completely amazing! Very knowledgeable, and confident, which really relaxed our... More

First time rafting for our family of adults. USA rafting was a pleasure to deal with, very helpful and reasonably priced. Had a very experienced guide in Big Mike. He was a lot of fun and even got us "surfing" on one wave. He asked USA how much fun we wanted to have and did not disappoint! Turns out his... More

We had a group of eight and We chose the upper Pigeon River trip. I really didn't know what to expect because this was my first time. But, no experience needed was correct. Ewok was our guide and he was awesome fun! He told us what to do and when, and we all worked as a team. I Really enjoyed... More

My husband and I went on an upper river rafting trip a week ago.My hubby had been rafting before, but it was my first time, so I was a little nervous, but I love the water and was prepared. Our guide did a great job going over safety rules before our trip and made me feel at ease. Throughout our... More

My wife and I were on vacation with my son, his wife and our grandkids. Have used USA rafting on other rivers and were very impressed with the way they stress safety. We went on the Lower Pigeon River because my 3 year old grandson could go. He had a blast sitting in the front of the raft and getting... More

LOVED every minute of the trip! Kenny was a wonderful guide for first timers! Booked the day trip. First trip down the river was very exciting. Got soaked, but stayed very safe! Came back to the building and had a great lunch with all the fixings. We were going to go down the second half of the river on kayaks,... More
