We had a great time kyayking down the river. The staff was helpful and friendly. They take care of all your canoe/kayak/tubing needs. Nice little store/gift shop. They even allow you to launch your own kayaks and help with logistics for a small fee.

We did the kayaks. The river was clear and beautiful. We went on a Monday and it wasn't busy. Go early to avoid the crowds. No problem with the check in system. Went smoothly. I read reviews and watched their video beforehand, so I knew...More
