Been rafting with MM since the 80's. Guides were knowledgeable and entertaining, as allways. Just fast enough water to keep the kids busy, but not too rough. Good time, we WILL be back.

We chose Mountain Man Rafting because it was close to our campsite and we couldn't be happier with our experience! Kelley, our guide, was great! Our children had an amazing time and will never forget our day rafting with Mountain Man!
