We had an amazing time and all staff are very helpful and friendly! Kayaks are in good condition and they are always there waiting at the end of your trip to pick you up to drive you back. The river and scenery are also beautiful!

Everyone at Trapper John's was friendly and helpful. This was our first outing on Darby Creek and certainly won't be our last. We chose the Upper portion of the river which was a very secluded and peaceful trip. Looking forward to our next trip.

Trapper John's does a great job getting you onto the river and letting you set your own pace for a trip down the river. There are a couple to choose from varying in a couple of hours to all day ... so do your research....More
