I just returned home from a quick tubing trip in the mountains with my family. We had a great experience with Loafers Glory. Friendly staff and very accommodating......even on a holiday. The trip down the river took about an hour and a half, but we didn’t stop for very long

Response from Anthony W, Owner at Loafers Glory Rafting and Tubing
Responded Jul 4, 2018
Dear Danielle, It has been understood by us, and all other boaters that use this access, that this is a public access put in. We dealt with the previous owners, the McElfreshes, and had a fantastic working relationship with them. After you or your family took ownership, we had not had the opportunity to meet you until yesterday, July 2, 2018. We saw your No Trespassing signs but they are posted in the trees above the river access and we never crossed the planes of those signs. There are no signs posted at the riverbank. Please be advised that we are not the only commercial outfitter that has been using this access since you took ownership, in addition to universities that use the river and study geology in the area, as well as private boaters. Be assured that we will not be back on your property. We apologize for upsetting you but you never communicated to us that this was an issue. Again, we will not return. We are respectful of your property and your wishes. Regards, Anthony Wilson
