Booking our trip was easy and a pleasure, Nikki in marketing was able to give me all the information I needed, she booked our trip, we arrived and hadn't had any problems getting our tickets. The guides were fun, very entertaining. We went on a Dam Release Day and had lots of fun. I think it was rated a 3-4,... More

My family which includes 4 adults and 2 kids ages 9 and 12 had the Dam Release Whitewater Rafting. After we were dropped off by the bus we walked quite far to get to the river. So it's not easy to bring the bucket full of food. We're quite disappointed with the water because we were expecting big rapids. But... More

We did the Whitewater (Dam Release) trip last weekend with our 12 year old and had a blast. The trip was well organized and a ton of fun. The guides were awesome, funny, and fun - especially AJ and Sandy (even though one of them dunked me in the river!). The rapids were good and well spaced throughout the 4.5... More

We went Labor Day weekend 2016 and it was packed. My three friends and I had a raft all to ourselves. There were probably about 20 rafts in our session filled with people of all different experience levels. At times it did feel like we were trying to avoid boats more so than rocks. The 3 staff with our session... More

Expect to get wet and hit Rapids. We did the dam release and the water was warm even though it was seemingly cold in the morning. Our guides were so friendly and nice (Austin and Caroline) and they gave us a lot of freedom to explore the river at our own pace. I would definitely go again! Also as we... More

First, let me preface my three star rating with the fact that this was the first rafting trip I ever went on so it's hard to know for sure how it compares. My 21 year old daughter and I took the "upper gorge" trip in late July. The check-in process was pretty smooth. Then we got our life jackets (no... More

I have to start by saying that I rate this as 5 Stars because of the staff. The staff was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, funny and professional. There was not a single occasion where we felt unsafe. The experience was fun and only mildly challenging. I was expecting a bit more from the river. For first time rafters this would be... More

The trip itself was good. It was the double release of the damn and the water was warm. The main area was ok. The bus ride was short, a little scary on the steep roads leading to the rapids. You then need to walk about 10 minutes down a rocky roadway and hills. Once in the raft the trip was... More
