Seven Oaks is great! You can float/paddle/hike/bike/camp/paintball in the summer. They also hold special events like weddings, and 5k fun runs. Their are only port-o-potties up at the camp grounds but you can drive down to the lodge for a shower is need be. Campsites are primitive (picnic table and fire pit- no electricity sites), but never too crowded. The... More

I had heard co workers talk about tubing near Boone and thought I would NEVER do that. We had a last minute trip out of town get cancelled so we decided not to let our friends weekend be wasted. We had planned on being in the area the night before so decided to give the river tubing a try. I... More

We were cancelled on Thursday due to high water (not their fault). We rescheduled for Friday. Emailed again that the trip was cancelled due to high water (again not their fault). Even though we had indicated that Friday was the last day that we were available to go they indicated that if we could make it work we could reschedule... More

I am sorry that we could not make it work for you. With the high waters mid week, our phone was ringing non stop with people re-booking their floats with us. Our most popular time slots were filling up quickly. Thank you for your input. More

Great service... River is pretty lackluster. I don't regret the trip.. Just won't do it again. If you're in the area go for it.

I had the best time ever this past Friday night with my daughter (5 year-old). I loved the tubing experience. The workers were so friendly, helpful, and happy to be there. After 2 hours of tubing, we went inside the lodge to order some hot chocolate and snacks and went outside to sit by the fire. A great place to... More

We have been here only once but we had an amazing time. The staff was very helpful. Clean place and they have all the equipment to rent. It was a bit expensive for the day (skiing) but we would go back. Great place to take the kids!!

We took our kids 8 and 6 skiing on a Saturday afternoon. They haven't been skiing before so we spent a lot of time on the bunny slope. They have instructors all over that hill that help any and everyone to ski for FREE! Their patience is excellent and they really do want you to excel and do it correctly.... More

I've been here for 2 events in the last two years. Very much enjoyed both. This area had other services which I didn't have an opportunity to sample but they did put on an excellent obstacle course mud race two years in a row.
