We had a fun afternoon paddling three canoes on the shortest trip (about 2 hours). The quality and age of the equipment and transport vans leave a little to be desired, the reason for just 3 stars. Eagle Nest has been run by the same...More

Kayaking and camping the Trough area is a 5! This outfitter, though... All this outfitter has going for it is that there few other options in the area. They were not straightforward about pricing on the phone when we were preparing. $89/pp to rent a...More

Great people to book canoe or kayak rentals. Customer care is first rate. Fishing in the area is excellent and beautiful river view compliment your adventure.

Eagles Nest may service a great stretch of river, but they take advantage of their monopoly as the only outfitter. Don't be surprised by poor service and misleading advice. After using them for 10 years, and normally very pleased with them, and enjoying their company,...More

Very nice company. We originally wanted kayaks but ended up with canoes due to the water level. They took us to the drop off point and then picked us up at the rendevous on time. Detailed maps explaining trouble areas to avoid. Great trip!

August is not the best month for canoeing, however my family had so much fun. There were some areas with rocks and trees because water level was low so we had to get off and pull the canoe. We definitely would go back when the...More
