I stayed in the Wagon Wheel cabin with friends this weekend. We enjoyed the cabin a lot. The cabin was clean with fresh towels and sheets on the beds when we arrived. The first night we were there it rained hard so I was grateful to be in that dry, cozy cabin! The wagon wheel is the last cabin in... More

We had a lovely time staying in a cabin down at the Gorge. The cabin kept us warm and dry from a storm that rolled in but other than that day it was beautiful outside and the hikes were rewarding. Would recommend to friends and family.

This was our 5th guided day or 1/2 day with RRO- their guides are safe, experienced, and will customize your session to your specific needs whether it be beginning rock climbing or high end lead instruction on steep rock. This paticular trip, we need a guide to help put up 5.11's and advise on lead. With the gudes help, we... More

Endless routes for all levels of experience, but I would highly recommend RRO to anyone with little-to-no outdoor climbing experience looking to get started outdoors. Very knowledgeable, patient, and friendly staff!

My colleagues and I were at Red River Adventure to “test the waters.” The workers here were very polite and very helpful. The river makes for a good ride. I had a great time as I watched my team partake of a kayaking race.

My boyfriend and I did a Gym to Outdoor class with RRO. It was great-- everything we could've asked for. The guides with us, Chris and Dan, taught us everything we needed to know, and then some. I always felt very safe, and they were extremely helpful if I had any questions (which, of course, I did). It was also... More

We just spent 6 nights in the Whip-Poor-Will A-frame cabin at RRO. What a cool cabin - we all loved it and it worked out perfectly for our family of 4. The kids stayed in the bedroom downstairs and my husband and I stayed in the loft. The property also had some nice trails and good exploring - the kids... More

My husband, daughter (11 y/o) and myself have rock climbed indoors for a few years but wanted to experience real rock. We only had a half a day to climb and now wish... More
