Had a blast, relaxing in the cool water floating in peace. Great prices, easy check in, and helpful staff made my experience even better! The river is natural and contains big, jagged rocks on some parts so water shoes are a must. I will be returning in the near and far future.

I went there this past weekend (the 20th) and had a blast! I will admit that I was super apprehensive when I saw the amount of cars in the parking lot for the park-shuttle-float offering - because the Ronas and all, but the buses were adequately filled (about 30-40% occupancy but definitely 6' between parties) and at least all of the employees were masked and kept their distance (not true of customers though). The amount of folks on the river itself was kinda crowded at times, but at no time was I not able to paddle away from large groups to secluded pockets of river. If you can stomach crowds during a pandemic and keep adequately separated - AND WEAR YOUR MASKS, you will be fine and have a BLAST!

Absolutely the best way to relax in central Texas. First time floating this past weekend, the weather was a perfect 92 degrees with scattered clouds. Everyone of the employees were pleasant and helpful, and the vibe on the river with the floaters was peaceful. Stunning views, while sipping on some liquid courage was a perfect start to the summer.
