Absolute blast. Went on a trip before I went out on the AT and had a great time on the river. Guides were great, the trip was awesome, and the burgers we had after the trip were even better! 10/10 would go back.

My daughter and I arrived for a late summer float down the river. The water was a little chilly but not unlike a river that is spring fed. Great time, beautiful area.

There were 3 children in our raft about the same ages. The 4 "rapids" were very tame. They sat in front and helped with the paddling when needed. Should be fine
