When making inquiries about tubing our family encountered Andrew. You really got the impression he didn't care if we used this business or not. Since we really needed answers to questions we did not appreciate his snotty answers. All we saw were black truck tubes...More

Our trip using this river outfitter was mostly positive. I would like to point out that this stretch of the river is very serene and for the most part you don't see a lot of river traffic. The rapids are easily navigated for beginner canoers...More

Went kayaking for 1/2 day while my wife was shopping. Owner was friendly and informative. Not sure some of the others have negative reviews. Pretty simple - show up, pay, get equipment, go paddling. They have awesome equipment (Jackson Riviera Kayaks). Will be back!

First I want to point out that this is the most beautiful and relaxing place to float the river. The waters were mostly deep and not overly crowded with chaos. The ugly part of the trip was that it took 3 hours to get our...More

Went tubing here today. The good: beautiful river. The bad: No changing facilities. No warning signs about parking restrictions - many people had to repark after being told they were parked in a restricted spot. The ugly: Chaotic and disorganized check in process. Way too...More

I checked their website and called before we left and was told their shuttle service was $10.00 a kayak from Nichols Landing to US281, Upon arriving however the price had increased to $20.00 a kayak. I want to support local businesses but don't want to...More

I wish I knew about this place before! A neighbor told us about this nearby gem, so we took advantage of taking our teenage kids kayaking and canoeing on a Sunday morning the day before school started. The kids opted for a kayak each and...More
