Easy, just drive up, get your stuff together, bring waterproof bag for phones etc.. cooler. Walk to the counter, pay 17 dollars each including tube rental and transportation, you're all set. It takes about 2 to 2.5 hours to the first stop if you want...More

The kayaking was amazing on this river. The wild horses were plentiful and unconcerned about human "intruders." We enjoyed swimming and the scenery cannot be topped. It was a little crowded though.

This year the river was higher so it was a very enjoyable day trip. Tubes can be rented on site. No glass containers are allowed. Wear sun screen no matter the color of your skin because you'll burn! Bring lots of bottled water to drink!
