We chose Mountain Man Rafting because it was close to our campsite and we couldn't be happier with our experience! Kelley, our guide, was great! Our children had an amazing time and will never forget our day rafting with Mountain Man!

Actually pretty peaceful experience but this is because the guide was so skillful. He makes it look so easy. They were kind and very concerned about the experience for us.

We took our 3 children, ages 13-6, who had never been rafting before. They loved it. The rapids were quiet this time of year, but the guide was a local and was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area.
