    Birthday trip for my wife. Beautiful area and accommodations. The river and rapids were amazing. Morning walks along the boardwalk were very peaceful. It was very early in the season and we missed seeing the tipis but hopefully next time. Definitely going to be back.

    They had one some time ago. It was by the lower part of the river. It was damaged a few times, quite severely. Has not been there for some time, unless they replaced since we were there the end of August, 2015.
