  • I want to start by saying that the guides were excellent. But the overall experience was disappointing and scary. We had to take a 15 minute bus ride from the check in area to and from the white...  more »

  • We went on a dam release Saturday. It was the family rafting experience. The guides were the best. Jim and I forget the names of the others were great. We didn't expect lunch, but here was lunch...  more »
  • This is allot of fun especially in the Summer. It's best to go after allot of rain or after a damn release. It's a great time for the whole family, it's very organized and the instructors stay with you the entire trip. The scenery is beautiful, bring your camera, they sell water proof cases for your camera. You must wear sneakers. Prices are very reasonable. Allot of fun, should experience it at least once, they also sell pictures of your experience
  • Aside from the river having only 2 and 3 currents it was a nice and relaxing trip. Halfway down the river you stop for lunch that is provided by the staff. All you can eat. The whole trip took about 4-5 hours. Great staff.
  • We went on the family style rafting with our 9 year old son and we all had an amazing time! We were afraid it would be long and boring but it definitely wasn’t! We all enjoyed paddling and navigating through the rapids, swimming in the calm spots, and everyone had a blast using water guns and throwing buckets of water at other rafters. The scenery was breathtaking and even the lunch was good! The guides were great and we felt safe. It was an unbelievable experience that definitely made awesome memories for our family! I also love that they took a professional picture. It was a fair price and definitely worth it to buy it. If you are looking for an “outdoorsy” type of adventure, this one definitely won’t let you down. This will undoubtedly be an annual trip for us. We will also be back for the dam release too! Well worth the money and the 2 hour drive! I can’t wait to go again!!
  • My friends and i have been coming here every summer for at least the last 6 years for the dam release whitewater trip. The staff is professional and fun and most of all, safe. The routes, both upper and lower gorge, are very scenic. We'll definitely be coming here for many more years. Next year we're thinking of doing the moonlight rafting trip. Highly recommend this place.
  • Looking for something different to do with our 14 year old son. We picked whitewater rafting. I was a little nervous since this was MY first time and the first time for our son. We had a blast. The staff was the best. The lunch was a nice break. Very relaxing. If i would have known it was so much fun, we would have started earlier in the season and would have been back many more time this summer. Will DEFINITELY be back many more times next year.
