  • Great family float. We have been every year since my son was 1yo. This year we asked our neighbors to go. We will all be back.  more »
  • The river was a very nice float and full of fish but it took an hour and a half waiting for the bus to leave to get on the river.  more »
  • We recently had to change our reservation and the person that changed it, accidentally rebooked it on to the wrong day. They immediately fixed it, as we checked in for our float. We've always had...  more »
  • These guys were great. We had reservations for what turned out to be a rainy day. They let us hang out and use the camping facilities even tho we weren't sure if we would float. But we did and the driver that took us to our drop off was very nice, funny and engaging. We had good equipment from the outfitters and that section of river was VERY easy to navigate. The store had great last minute amenities to buy and in whole we were very pleased with the experience. It's also a full campground with showers.
  • Waited for an hour to drop in but only had one guy working who was very friendly and helpful. Normally float elk and this was pleasantly different. There were not a lot of houses along the float or a bunch of people partying. A beautiful run. Very much worth the money for under 40 spent over 3 hours floating peacefully. We did go on a Wednesday which may have helped but overall very good experience.
  • We stayed in an "open space" camp site because when we called to make reservations they were booked. The open space is basically an undeveloped site, but very large and can fit two tents and hammocks easily. There is a rudimentary place for a fire. Our biggest problems with the campground were the trash that was located on the ground around the camp site, and the bathrooms were not very clean. It's a beautiful location , located right on the river, and they made booking canoes easy.
  • Fun day. The staff did a great job. Restroom facilities were less than desirable and the grounds could use some upkeep. I can’t complain much because the pricing was more than fair and the rental Equipment was in great shape. We look forward to next season. 3 hour trip for my family was perfect.
  • I have lived in Springfield all my life and we drive 3 hours out too find rivers too float. Little did I know this wonderful place is rite where we live. Amazing. Beautiful. Bluffs water is clear and the people that run it will absolutely take the time for you. Bring your dog's kayaks' canoes. They will shuttle. Fishing is great. My husband caught 15 small and large mouth. Will definately revisit.
