My husband and I canoed the 7 mile trip with our sons, ages 15 and 11. It cost $108 with tax. Cave Country has a clean bathroom building across the street. You can bring coolers & food to take with you. Alcohol is allowed. Cave Country provides life jackets, canoes, oars and a mesh trash bag. They also have free parking and a gift shop. It was a beautiful day and the trip had lots of places to beach your canoes for a rest, snack or lunch. The river was crowded at times but not for very long. There were 2 rope swing stops along the route. The map that the outfit provides is a little hard to figure out. The trip took us 3 1/2 hours and we stopped 4 times for a total of about an hour. The river is wide and easy to canoe. We went thru approx 7 small rapids. Canoeing thru the rapids is very cool. This is the second time we have canoed with Cave Country. The first time, my husband and I canoed the 14 mile trip. It took us 5 1/2 hours and we stopped a lot due to rain. It was just as much fun even though we got rained on. I would not recommend the 12 or 14 mile trips if you are beginners or bringing kids. There are a lot more rapids on the 14 mile trip; some small, some intricate. Cave Country Canoes and the Blue River is a great way to spend a sunny, summer Saturday!
Thank you so much for your kind review! We are glad that you had a memorable experience on your trip. The river does make for a very interesting trip and both the half day and full day have some unique features to offer! We would note that Indiana state law does prohibit drinking on public waterways. Thank you for taking to the time to provide such a wonderful review and we hope to see you again!
