Great "dare devilish" experience!

First, for out of towners this may be a great trip.. if they have enough water for a release upstream from he lake. If they do, there are a couple of great curves that will get you wet and pump some Adrenalin thru your body. If the water is low, well not so much so. A few friends of ours... More

My wife and I plus my brother and his wife thought a rafting trip would be a nice way to end the summer. We were wrong. In defense of the folks who run this operation, there were a few incidents, like the idiot who tried to sneak his dog onto his raft, three rafts full of loud, obnoxious New Yorkers... More

This was my first time rafting and I have to say the guides on our trip were great! Right away Rebecca made my kids feel comfortable and happy, they will always remember their "mama duck". They gave great direction and were very helpful if you got stuck. They even had someone to take a picture of you rafting down the... More

While well organized, equipped and instructed, if you are lucky you don't fall out among the rocks seen and unseen and discover why the guides in the kayaks are wearing helmets. Hopefully they have added helmets for all passengers by now, otherwise, go elsewhere.

What a great experience, all the way around! We did the Intro to Whitewater, with 4 adults and 3 kids. Everyone had a wonderful time, Becca, our group leader was great showing us how to navigate the river, even with low water levels. The trip was long, but even the kids stayed engaged. There were some exciting moments, lots of... More

We rafted on a Thursday which was only the "easy rafting" tour but definitely worth it. Our guides were super helpful and friendly. We were beginners but that didn't matter. The river wasn't too rough so we didn't need much experience. Next time we want to try the class 3/longer trip!

This is actually the first time I am writing a review. I feel compelled to write this because the company, Jim Thorpe river Adventures, that we took our trip through, deserves an A+ recognition. Our trip was August 21 at 9:40 AM. My husband and teenage boys had been water rafting before and wanted to take a more challenging course,... More

Our adventurous group of 4 life long friends was celebrating a birthday with our whitewater rafting trip. We went on a Monday, and did the easy trip. It was not crowded, the trip was approximately 10 miles/ took about 3 hours. We had a fantastic time and would love to do it again but do the next level of rapids.... More
