We had an amazing time on the river with the very nice folks from Big Creek. Their equipment, instruction, gift shop, restrooms and guides are all top notch. The Pigeon River is mostly class 2-3, with a few good rips. Other parts are fairly serene with beautiful views. Our guide, Erica, was fantastic - very knowledgeable about the area (she's a local gal!), easy to follow guidance and great rapport with all ages. We had my mother in law at 75 years along with my son who is 11 and both loved it. You get a free key ring when you get your keys back and the action photos come on a thumb drive for about $30. Highly recommended!

We took our kids (11 and 7) whitewater rafting and it was such an amazing experience! The folks at Big Creek don't play with safety and the ride was amazing. Don't be scared of the "upper" river ride with kids, as the guides are very experienced.

There's a portion during the ride when you can jump in the river and swim. Do it!!!! The folks at Big Creek don't rush the ride, like some other places, so your time and money spent are very well worth it.

Don't forget to tip your guide at the end!

Big Creek Expeditions what a blast. My wife the wild women had this on her bucket list. 1st class experience with this company. Our guide Greg (Chubbs - you will have to ask) made the trip even more worth it. He was very safe, knowledgeable and his 22 years of experience showed. Ready to go again!

Oh my gosh! Where do I begin! Greg P, our Rafting Guide was totally AWESOME!!!! We had pre-booked our trip for 7 with no problems, Big Creek Expeditions is easy to find! Simple explanation of safety procedures prior to trip, they help secure everyone in their life vests, helmets and paddle prior to boarding bus, made us all feel confident in "our" and "the guides" abilities! Absolutely and Incredible experience as 1st time white water rafters! Hot Tip, bring a gopro and film your excursion! Also, ask for Greg P. as your guide! You will not be disappointed!!! LOVED IT!
