What do you wear for clothes and shoes while rafting? Is there a place to store dry clothes to change into?
basically you can wear anything that you don't mind getting wet. Some people wear bathing suits, but most people wear shorts and tank or t-shirt. You have to store dry clothes in the car. No lockers. But there are changing rooms where you can shower and change. I would definitely recommend to do this. I forgot a change of clothes and was wet and cold the whole way back to the cabin. And make sure to wear shoes that are secure on the foot with ankle closure. So sandals with a band around the ankles are OK, but no flip-flops or crocs. I would recommend water shoes if you have them.
Wear any clothes that will dry easily and shoes as well but make sure they are closed toe. No place to store clothes but they will hold keys.
I wore my swimsuit when I went. We took a wet bag when we went which had our dry clothes in them and kept that in the car. When we were done (and we were soaked from the float trip) we got the wet bag out and used the changing rooms to swap out clothes.
I wore lake shoes. They do sell them in their store (runs about $10/pair) including child sizes. They will not let you in the raft if your footwear can pose a danger. You need your feet to get a good grip in the raft (you put a foot under the seat/edge of the raft to anchor yourself).
Bathing suit and shorts. They have a dangling Room with shower but you have to lock up your stuff in your car!
We got soaked but that was the best part. It was 90+ sovwe were dry by the time we ate and left.
