“Great trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 10 August 2014

Had a BLAST. Great day out on the water. Weather was incredible. Guides were top notch - I was really impressed. They were super fun, friendly, relaxed, experienced and qualified. I was also impressed by how seriously they took the safety of the guests. I never felt uncomfortable during our trip down the river or unsure of their expertise. The venue itself was also good. To all you whiners, if you're expecting a 5 star resort, you've come to the wrong place. This is an outdoor adventure company, not a spa! The campground was great - clean with nice soft grass for pitching your tent, trees for shade and close to the amenities. Although cafeteria style, the food was pretty good. I really had no complaints(and I'm super picky). Was it gourmet? No. But again, if that's what you're there for, you're in the wrong place. There was a rocking bon fire the night we were there with live entertainment. I believe his name was Up River (stream?) Dave, and he was fan-freakin-tastic. Knew just about every song on the planet and really got the crowd involved. At one point, I'm pretty sure the the entire campground was dancing around the bon fire, staff and all. Speaking of staff, they were great too. Friendly and helpful and always available. Overall I had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this company. Cant wait to visit again next year! Thanks River Run!!!!
