    We stayed here with another family in one of the Chalets. Had an amazing time with the babies. Right on the river with a convenient board walk and gorgeous Rapids. Everything we needed was provided in the cabin for cooking.

    Go here! Don't question it. Absolutely epic location. Lodging choices include, a private chalet, a pretty nice condo, a bunk room in a cabin, Tepees or pitch your own tent. The entire property has been carefully and sensitively developed with as little impact as possible....More

    They had one some time ago. It was by the lower part of the river. It was damaged a few times, quite severely. Has not been there for some time, unless they replaced since we were there the end of August, 2015.
