We did a half-day on the river with USA Raft in October and it was a phenomenal experience. Our guides, Loren and Wes were incredible - super friendly, very knowledgeable about the local area and especially familiar with the river and how to navigate safely. The water level wasn't very high when we were there and it was still very thrilling and fun. Lots of class 3 and 4 sections and also some nice sections of calm river where you can relax a bit and enjoy the river. The scenery is absolutely incredible. There's a shower and sauna back at basecamp to help warm up if you're there in the Fall, and the little bar is an awesome place to hang out and have a few beers after a very exciting afternoon. I absolutely recommend USA Raft.

We had a great rafting experience with Loren as our guide! He scared us with is pre-rafting talk on the ride to the river, but he made us feel safe on the water and made us laugh the whole trip. It was the end of September so the air and water were really cold, but totally worth it! Can't wait to do it again!

A group of 4 friends had an amazing time with Guide Lela and the rest of the staff. From booking, arrival, and setting out the staff was attentive to our needs and concerns. The river was so much fun, and our guide was steadfast with jokes and making sure we stayed safe. I will visit again.

We were extremely fortunate to have John Davis as our guide, instructing us not only about the cave’s history and geology, but also how to transverse it safely. This was a demanding hike, and truly tested our physical limitations, which was exhilarating. John showed us what is was like to be a Civil War era saltpeter miner, toiling with only a candle or oil lamp for illumination. John showed us how our other senses are amplified when the darkness removes sight. We thoroughly enjoyed learning about the geological formation of the cave; what an amazing teacher! We finished our exploration muddy, spent, but so satisfied. I booked this trip for my birthday, and it was one of the best days ever! Thank you USA Rafting Adventure! Everyone on your staff is fantastic and goes out of their way to make sure you have a marvelous visit. This is our second experience with them, and it won’t be our last.
