My family of teens had a wonderful time at Thorntons. They went whitewater rafting on Saturday and paintball on Sunday and had a ball! Our cabin was clean and everything was in cabin that we needed (linens, etc.)

We had a group of 16 that camped for 3 nights, rafted the Menominee, and did paintballing. We had an awesome time and would definitely go back again. Kathy was great to work with!

I have to say I was a bit hesitant when we arrived at Thornton's Rafting and found out the river was "full" and there would be only 6 in the raft. We had an AWESOME guide named Randy, so soon we began a wondrous time...More

We stay at Thorntons in a two bedroom cabin and had a fantastic time. The workers are great and we had a blast whitewater rafting. We've already recommended Thorntons to friends and will definitely be back!
