Easy to pay, sign up, restrooms were nasty, changing room lights were burned out. I should have run. They state anyone 3 and above will be fine. I am not a strong swimmer and when I asked about a life jacket, they were fairly non-commital....More

I can't find fault with the company for the river--it is a river--there are rocks, they are sharp! I would never tube THIS river with small kids (hit the French Broad up in Asheville for that), but the management is so poor. They were 8...More
