Due to upstream dam releases the river is back to its normal family float.  Please remember if you do not pass Horseshoe Park boat ramp (about mile 6) by 3:30 your trip will end there.  We recommend the 9am start on weekends.  

Our weekends sell out one to two weeks in advance so please check our calendar page for availability and book it online today!
