The timing was unfortunate. It rained steadily and was pretty chilly for a June 16th float. Also, the water level was really low and there was only one or two Class 3 rapids. But I have no regrets. My daughter (18), son (25), and I...More

Several friends got together with a day of river rafting! We chose to go without a guide since I’ve been down several times and could stear with no worties. If the water is “right” I recommend you go! If you’re not experienced in river rafting...More

Everyone at Mountain Man is friendly, they all clearly love what they do and work to make their "adventurers" comfortable and safe. Row if you want, or just ride; jump off the big boulder in the middle of the river or just watch others do...More

Been rafting with MM since the 80's. Guides were knowledgeable and entertaining, as allways. Just fast enough water to keep the kids busy, but not too rough. Good time, we WILL be back.

We rafted with Mountain Man last week. The water is cold but we didn't really get wet. Splashed a little but it wasn't bad at all. They do have splash gear if you need to use it. They also provide water shoes for you as... More
