We had a great time on the Deerfield River Kayak Run. Rental equipment was awesome with a huge selection of boats and sizes. The river is beautiful and the daily reservoir release makes it fun no matter the rainfall. A really great adventure. Highly recommended.

So glad you got to enjoy this twice-a-season rafting trip! The West River is a great way to enjoy rafting and to experience Vermont from a very different perspective. I hope we'll see you back again on a rafting or zip line adventure.

It was fun but not terribly exciting, except for a few moments out of the day. Because of the volume of people taken in each group, a LOT of time was spent waiting around, both on land and on the river. I'd say this is...More

Yes, there are showers available for after the trip. They are coin operated (a quarter is about 4 minutes) in order to conserve water. Hope to see you soon!
