“Party river”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2009

We floated on a saturday. If you hear a boat running you better get out the way. This is a beautiful river. It was very populated and crowded, along with heavy drinking and even a fight as we loaded our gear. You will see lots of police, heavy drinkers, more tubes than kayaks or canoes, be aware of the motor boats. This is not a river I would take my family to at the end of summer. I might be open for an early fall float to check out the scenery when all the drunken tubers are gone.
