The operation here is first-rate. There are plenty of staff to help you check-in and they guide you through it step-by-step. We (four adults and two kids) went on a Sunday and it was crowded, but you didn't feel overwhelmed. They kit you out with...More

Went family rafting around the 4th of July. We checked in exactly at our designated time. Check-in process was very smooth as was the paperwork and life-jacket distribution. Then we waited. And waited. The place was crowded. Nowhere to sit. About 45 minutes later they...More
