I have wanted to do this for years, but had no one to go with until my nephew came to visit from MN. Neal was our guide and he was so nice. Our group was only four and we all picked it up pretty quick. Going out early is the key because there was hardly anyone on the lake. Paddleboarding... More

We had an amazing 2 day kayak trip on 7-8 June. Our guide Geno was really knowledgable about the area and history and made amazing meals. The hot springs and scenery were gorgeous. We would definitely recommend taking this trip.

They didn't charge us for the change. Turned... More
