River was little rocky in spots- some spots were very shallow could walk across. Was relaxing and nice. We were on the river Friday 9/1/17- morning- Not too many people. But we heard weekend was booked all three days. People coming up to cooler weather.

Sorry for very late reply...usually we are open all of August. Low water will shut us down. Watch our website for updates for 2016!
