We took the longer tubing trip and enjoyed it once I learned that my husband had an extra paddle in the canoe he rented. I needed the paddle to fend myself off the numerous snags in the water. I suggest that the owners supply each...More

Our LOVE2KAYAK group of 18 chose this river as part of our fall trip because of the beautiful scenery, and the challenge of paddling it. The 4 hour trip is listed as "intermediate" due to the maneuvering around deadfall. They have good rental equipment &...More

Twelve of us took tandems and singles on the three hour trip down the White River. Lots of twists and turns along the way, but nothing too dangerous. Very relaxing.

The livery seemed like a decent business (albeit staffed with somewhat apathetic teens) but because they don't allow personal tubes on their bus (even when absolutely dead), we were unable to use their services and instead tubed down Sischou Bayou and walked back. The staff...More
