The three mile float trip from Curry Village is open. Book in advance.

The website includes info about using your own raft.

Remember that the water is cold! Be water safe.

Cold might be an understatement for many people.

The water temperature in the afternoon the last week has been only a high of about 55 or 56 degrees F at the Happy Isles Bridge.

This is great news! Thanks for posting.

Do you have any idea if they usually accept reservations over phone/website at some point? I have the feeling that if I have to wait until I am physically there to reserve, all the spots will be gone. Especially in July.

Thanks again

I hope that the Merced River has enough water in July.

Unless I am missing something the link just said "at this time we only take reservations at the kiosks". Trying to figure out if that will change or if I have to wait until I get there to reserve a spot.

Has anyone reserved over phone/website in the past?

According to the homepage, the rafting season seems to be over. Can anyone confirm this?
