This is truly an excellent deal. We spent the whole afternoon speeding through class 2 and class 3 rapids. I chose this tour initially because my wife is afraid of the water and not much of a swimmer, and so I expected a lazy float,...More

Do not use this company. They rented me very dangerous bikes. Staff have no experience or knowledge. Plus the boss is a nasty greedy little man with no idea how to treat customers. Beware!

Went river rafting on the Kern River level 3 this year. Beautiful RV park right on the river. KSR RV Resort/Camp James. Have stayed there twice. Nice but they only take checks or cash.
