Good food after a family rafting trip while sitting alongside the Arkansas River. A great way to end a fun raft trip.

Cool place to hang with some river guides. Friendly staff! Ask for Sarah and don't forget to tip. Elk brats and local beer. Great place to meet some guides and you can camp onsite as well.
