A friend and I camped two nights at NRO and did the 14-mile river trip in a canoe that we rented from NRO. Check-in was easy. I will say that finding a spot to camp was a bit of a trick, and it had rained...More

We had the liability waiver filled out before we arrived, so check-in was fast and easy. The river was up two feet and flowing quite nicely, so there wasn't too much paddling involved for the 7 mile trip. I want to mention the take out...More

Great fun but cops are all over watching for anything they can write you up on. Even hiding on the banks of the river. Have fun but be on the lookout.

I was invited to do a float trip with a large group of people at NRO. You check in at the building and get a tag for your car so it doesn't get towed. Then you go and pick your campsite. It's really a free...More

Pros: Prices were competitive, friendly staff and hours, longest float trip available in the area (14 miles), good equipment and great location. They even picked us up and dropped us off at our cabin off-resort. Would highly recommend NRO

They have canoes, kayaks, and rafts. Three levels of camping; cabins, rv, and primitive. The bus drivers that drop you at the put-in and take-out sites are very friendly and helpful.

It depends on the size of the raft. They have a 4 or 6 person raft ($90/$135). You also get two free nights of camping when you float with them. Just google NRO camping and you can find their complete rates. There are also... More
