We had a fantastic time. The staff was friendly and helpful. The facility was very clean. The river was great with several rapids. We used a coupon and only paid $8 compared to $15 at other area companies. We will be back.

Had a great time with cowboy tubing. My family and I spent most of the day on the river. They have a small picnic area with tables. Changing rooms also.

We are all enjoying the fast and slow of this treasured summer activity. Just enough exercise and relaxation to make a summer memory.
