Our family spent six days and five nights at REO. My wife glamped, I rafted four days, rested one and the boys rafted all five days. We were offered other adventures, but even our seventeen year old couldn’t accept anything more.
Brian and Karen are too accommodating. They upgraded our tent where my wife loved the chest of drawers and shaded porch overlooking the river. Brian took us on an extra special adventure to a remote river and Karen invited my wife to eat with her family and visiting friends because we were getting back late.
On the river every day was different. We had different guides who attacked and played in the river with their unique style. The boys went on an extra guide training one afternoon. We watched Brian bump his daughter into the water to the delight and screams of her fifteen friends and sister. And the last day Brian took us through Rose Garden and Meat Grinder which had been out of bounds due to high water and timber. He then took one son and the training guides down to the pull-out at the camp to end their training and our rafting adventures.
The professional cooks made tasty, hearty meals shared by all the staff and guests alike. I was concerned when the cooks were off but the staff and their friends kept the quality, quantity, and taste to a high standard. Besides a birthday cake with a gaggle of girls, on our last night we shared a roast beef dinner putting me over-the-top.
Our family can’t say enough about the people, the place, and the trip. I recommend making your visit more than a day trip. The longer you stay, the more you will get back.
