  • We took the 1/2 day river tour and it was excellent!! Erin and Devo did a fantastic job! They were very knowledgeable about the area and were excellent river guides! We are planning our next trip which will include a full day on the river and will be back to Far Flung!!
  • Very good stay! Clean and unique. It is outside the park but as close as you can get. Very reasonably priced too.
  • Everything you need to have a great outside adventure is here. Cabin's were a nice size. You can cook or go out to a local restaurant. Fire pit, stars are out and so beautiful. Lot's of parking. The staff is. Helpful. Please indicate if this was helpful, thanks.
  • Water levels didn't permit the Santa Elena full day float trip so we chose the full day Colorado Canyon float trip. On our trip were just my husband and I and our guide, Dan. It was a wonderful trip of peacefully floating down the river. Dan was a great guide who provided just the right amount of interpretation of what we were seeing and allowing for long moments of contemplation. Nothing dramatic happened, we didn't see any javalinas or other large wild life and it was still worth the price. Lunch was a decent picnic of sandwiches and fruit and a delicious secret recipe salsa. Everything was done efficiently and without rushing. Highly recommend!
  • The single day boating tours are not as impressive as they sound. We expected a lot and they took us to some parts of the river in the Big Bend State Park, whereas the Canyons in the National Park had much better views. I would give 2.5 stars for the trip itself. Lovely staff and boat guides, though. 5 stars for them!
