Went on one of their $99 specials. Nice lunch, followed by 10 mile raft trip. Our guide George was excellent. Will be doing it again soon.

This was the first stop on a week-long adventure with 25 high school students. We decided to camp at their campground the night before our rafting trip. When we arrived, we were warmly welcomed, and got right to setting up our tents. The staff even asked if we needed help with our tents. They went out of their way to... More

Oh how the anxiety grew up the mountain. But after the first rapid it was nothing but joy and excitement. We had just had some snow and it melted conditions were perfect levels according to management. It was such fun and good food afterwards. Next time I will have to get an upgraded package.

My wife and I took a day trip to see the area and raft the river. We drove in from the airport and loved the beautiful area, the ride to the drop off spot was a bit rough but with the wide dirt roads it was ok. The map and instructions were good, allow yourself extra travel time, boats and... More

Caring management, staff, and guides - excellent instruction and preparation. Fun meals. Super oversight. I'm told I was the only casualty in 33 years, and I'm still here! My family did the trip May 28-29, 2006, when snowmelt was really bringing the water down - second day our raft flipped and I drowned. Long story (Fresno Bee, 9/3/06, "Rescue on... More

The ride up the mountain wasn't much fun but from the moment we reached the camp til the end of the experience it was a blast. The guides were very friendly and it was a lot of fun. Highly reccommended!

Our guide was lazy & dodged most of the rapids. As avid whitewater enthusiasts with our own equipment, this was our first commercial trip. We decided to go this route because it was a new river for us & we're not quite as young as we used to be. We were looking for an exciting adventure, but instead received a... More
