Sierra was the best! We took four kiddos ages 9-7 in 47 degree weather. Sierra was outstanding at guiding the trip and knew stories about the route to keep the kiddos engaged. Thank you for the great experience!

My husband and I booked this rafting trip and it was the best. Connor was our guide and he was excellent he was fun and informative. He gave us the experience we were hoping for. We arrived at the business around 8:15 and everyone was friendly and helpful. They offered wetsuits and splash jackets because of the water temperature it was about 55 degrees and this was in June. We opted for just the splash jacket. Everyone was friendly and professional and seemed to really enjoy the job. The weather was good a little overcast but no rain. You really didn’t have time for pictures so having a photographer there was appreciated. Even though I thought they might be little expensive we bought them because we won’t be back this way again. I also really enjoyed the people on the raft with us. I think we all had a great time. After we arrived back at the business there is a bar and grill there so we dried off changed clothes and had lunch. We enjoyed everything about this place. I highly recommend booking any of the activities they have at the Royal Gorge Rafting company. Thanks again to CONNOR for making the day so memorable.

Fantastic. This company is the little guy you want to support.

First off, let’s talk safety. Ask my wife and she’ll tell you I’m the first one to throw that crap out the window and just go for it. Not lost paddle. Helmets & life jackets were first priority and they took the time to make sure everything fit the way it should. We saw another rafting company out that stopped to take a swim. One of their guests got a little panicked and they had to pull him out of the water. His life jacket slipped right off so I got to see first hand WHY the Lost Paddle team take it seriously. I was thankful for that unplanned demonstration by the other company for both me and my two kids.

Our guide Will was awesome and knowledgeable about the river. He shared info and stories that were interesting and useful and was good at taking charge when it was time for all of us to maneuver the boat.

Worth the money and they’ll be getting our business next time we’re though Canyon City.

Exhilarating! Our family of 6 enjoyed this time together tremendously. The kids ages range from 9-19 and we ALL had the best time. A lot of laughter and splashing, giggles and jokes, family bantering tomfoolery. Adam our guide was knowledgeable about the river and made us feel safe maximizing our enjoyment of this total experience. We even saw a family of Bighorn Sheep! He shared information about the flora and fauna of the area and let us all jump in the river at one point. So much fun! So worth it! Kelly who took my reservation and welcomed our party is top notch, so friendly and made us feel at ease. Jim, Jimmy and Adam are so chill and obvious experts at what they do. Perfect comfortable level of interaction with our party. We'll remember this experience and speak of these memories for many, many, many years!

Highly Recommend LOST PADDLE RAFTING - Create memories of your own!

Beautiful scenery, but not much excitement with the low river conditions around 400 fps. Heavier groups frequently got hung up on rocks, while lighter groups like our seemed to manage better. Glad I was able to save a bit with Lost Paddle's rates vs some of the other local outfitters closer to the launch point. Be sure to check water flow conditions yourself, and set your expectations accordingly. Low water will be more like a float and not so much a thrilling whitewater experience. It seems like a flow rate closer to 1000 fps or more would be a lot more fun... Check USGS 07094500 gauge reports.

We took a half day trip with Lost Paddle Rafting for Bighorn Sheep Canyon...we were not disappointed! The owner was very helpful in reserving our spot on short notice. When we arrived, the staff was very friendly and helped us get ourselves organized for the trip. They answered questions and seemed as if they really like what they do.
The bus ride there took a short time and our driver was very attentive to the road. Our raft guide was Andrew...he was great! He made us feel safe the whole time and was a very nice person. We were all so surprised to hear that this was his first year as a guide because he knew his stuff! (Thank you, Andrew!)
Our family highly recommends Lost Paddle Rafting. The prices were right and the experience was great. :)

Had a great time with Andrew our guide. It was the family's first time rafting and Andrew gave great instructions and was very friendly and fun. The half day trip was easy even for a 10 year old and everyone wanted to do it again but with bigger rapids. I highly recommend Lost Paddle Rafting, even though Andrew was our guide we had the chance to meet a few others and they were all very friendly as well. I don't think there is a bad guide there!

This was such a fun experience! My kids and I had a great time. The staff was all super friendly and very knowledgeable about the river. Their concern about everyones safety was very comforting to my kids, who were both a little nervous. Our guide tyler was amazing! We had an excellent time! Recommend this place for sure!!!

Our family of 6 (ages: 6,9,15,19,45,47) had a great time! It was the perfect mix of excitement for all ages. Our guide, Sierra, was funny, skilled, and delightful. It was great to be with a small group (4 rafts), so we could keep an eye on each other which proved beneficial when our 19 year old fell out on a rapid. The training received was sufficient to get her safely back in the boat and added just the right amount of drama to our pictures, lol! Lost Paddle is a small operation with a true sense of family among the employees. They were all knowledgeable and fun! They came recommended and we will now be happy to recommend Lost Paddle too! What they may lack in fancy new digs they make up for in substance and genuine enjoyment of the experience.

So much fun!
We’ve rafted in the past in California, but this was our first class three rapids! Andrew (the one with curly blonde hair) was our guide and he was so funny but also very knowledgeable about the rapids. I loved this company versus the others in town because it felt smaller and more local. We were not crowded on the bus there and we had a raft to our own party of family members.
Definitely recommend and we hope to visit again in the future!
