I have rafted this river over 12 times. It is always the best with Alpine. Jim and the whole gang made it and amazing day. Actual rafts and gear are top notch, guide do a good job. Lunch is great.

Hey Oliver. Actually, Wild Water Adventures start at the same place as Alpine does, so they are not, in fact, the "only" company to start there. Wild Water was there before Alpine, actually...just so as you know the truth. Thanks!

We have booked a rafting tour with you for 8 June, I noticed that on one of the reviews they mentioned free camping. We will be travelling in a motorhome, will the camping facilities on your site be suitable or should we arrange to stay somewhere else?
