We had a great time, one boat for all 6 of us and we planned ahead this year and brought our super soakers. That was a good call as many people floating planned ahead as well and even if we didn't have lots of water running there was plenty being shot around! Only recommendation is to wear shoes that don't... More

The water was low, but we still had fun! The employees were nice and seemed to be enjoying themselves. The most exciting part was the very end, where the water runs faster than anywhere else on the river. Most of the trip was relaxing and refreshing.the is a restaurant at the end of the trip. so, bring money if you... More

This was a lot of fun and very well run. Everyone was extremely helpful and nice. Not much water this year, so we're happy we were able to raft during the 3 weeks they were open.

We had a great river ride on a beautiful day. The staff is nice and helpful. The river was slow moving and there were quite a few rocks but that made the adventure fun. Nothing like working hard to get off the rocks so that you can enjoy the rest of your ride. The rafts were in good condition. The... More

This was a great adventure. Everything was so well organized from parking, checking in and getting back up river. Staff was very friendly. We took this trip with 3 adults and 2 six year olds and everything was fine!! My kids had a blast!!

First thing to note that because of the California drought, the water level is currently very low. There may only be a short amount of time left to raft this year. We had a great time on the river with Truckee River Rafting Company. We visited on July 4th weekend and I was dreading the crowds, but it wasn't that... More

I was looking forward to a leisurely float trip. Unfortunately, due to the drought, it is closed-most likely for the summer. There was only a few puddles where a few years ago when we visited, there was several feet of water.

My dog loves swimming. So we try to take him go rafting very summer. No doubt Truckee river rafting company is always my first choice. Water here is clear and shallow. It's a great place for family rafting. Staffs here are so nice. We all love this place.

This is one activity you can personalize any way you want. You can float down the river as fast or as slow as you want. You can pull over and have a picnic and a swim. You can even take a nap. Spend all day or just an afternoon - your choice.

This trip would have been better if we left our dogs in our camper. We have two hunting dogs that would not stay in the raft with all the ducks and geese. Awesome scenery and super clear water, lots of fish to see with Polaroid glasses. We would go again without our pets and take our time to enjoy it... More
