Very friendly staff set us up with 2 canoes for 6 people. Parked at pull out point and we were shuttled to the drop in point. Did fine even with very little previous canoe experience. I would highly recommend this company.

First canoe trip with the kids. Think they had fun .... Well maybe not after the canoe tipped over. 😀 Great staff and location for those first time. Must do again.

It was a beautiful ride down the Green River. Be prepared for zero civilization for about 4 hours. No issues on the river! You do have to paddle. The river won't take you. It was longer than I anticipated. There wasn't much wildlife to see...More

Can I get a list of camping sites available?

Response from Paul H | Reviewed this property |
There aren't any designated camping sites. You just find a gravel bar and set up camp. Outside the park it is private land but the landowners don't seem to mind as long as you don't make a mess. Inside the park you need a... More
Are these guided trips or do we just go on our own? Do they have canoes big enough for 4 ( 2adults, 2 child) ? Do you just show up at any point during the day or are there set times their shuttle runs? Sorry, Their website is not very informative! Thank you!
