“Family Rafting Fun!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 October 2014

We just returned from a fun few days at RiverRun Rafting. Four of us (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed comfortably in the Little Trickle Cabin. Accommodations are basic but the cabin had a fan, heater and small fridge. Bathrooms were a short 2 or 3 minute walk away and the shower house was just a bit farther. Food was also basic but was flavorful and kept us full. We also brought plenty of snacks and stuff to make sandwiches so we were never hungry.

Our rafting trip was lead by Cara who is very nice. She made a point to get to know everyone in our raft and asked basic personal questions which was very nice. She ensured that we know how to manage the raft and to follow her instructions. She kept the trip fun, safe and informative while pointing out local wildlife features and other landmarks. It was a very fun memorable day on the river.

I recommend this trip to anyone who is thinking about trying white water rafting. My 8 year old son summed it up best by saying "So the big question is, same time next year?".

Thanks RiverRun Rafting for a fun family vacation!
