“Great Camping”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013

Beautiful and quiet. There weren't many people around and the grandkids loved it. It felt really safe. Bathrooms were outhouses....you have to have some pain with all that beauty. Roads are well maintained.

“Beautiful River & area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

White Water Rafting on the White Salmon River in Wash. is a must do! After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, I selected Wet Planet. So glad I did. We had a wonderful rafting trip, felt very safe(instructions before, we even got off & walked around a dangerous waterfall w/a sharp log sticking up in the middle) Professional from the time I booked on line, then called to change day. I asked the best time of day to raft & was told morning. Afternoon is fine, but colder b/c the sun goes behind the hills. They had All of the gear needed to stay warm & safe all inclusive of the price. Loved the whole experience! Next time we would go later in the summer b/c you put in 2 miles farther up the river. It looks like the waterfalls are maybe more extreme, but that would be okay too.

“Great Rafting Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Went rafting with River Drifters in Husum. I have been rafting a number of times before but this was the best location for the combination of good scenery, nice weather (in the summer warm weather and cold water), and quality rafting. It has a good number of different good rapids with many challenging 3 - 4 rapids but nothing too intense. The Husum Falls was an awesome experience and was definitely worth it. The falls are only open when the water flow is low enough which is near mid summer. The rest of the year the rafts have to pull out before the falls and go back in downstream.
