We took the 2 hour canoe trip. Took our sweet time. Enjoyed it very much. They take you to your drop off spot, finish at Jack’s. I would recommend. You can tube also.

At 3.5 hours from start to finish, this is definitely one of the longer tubing trips I've taken. The pace of the river was actually fairly brisk. The water was clean and the scenery was lovely. Though it was a warm 84 degrees outside on...More
