One of the best river and whitewater adventures of your life!

River rafting season starts early May.

For an experience you’ll never forget, take the full day trip on the Elk or Bull River. Professional guides will steer you through thrilling whitewater, stunning canyons and scenic wilderness. Relax with a delicious riverside lunch and marvel at scenery and wildlife as bald eagles circle overhead. Try cliff jumping, inflatable kayaks or ‘ride the dragon’ if you’re inclined towards more adrenaline.

For a more laid-back, gentle approach enjoy a half-day of guided Stand Up Paddle Boarding or a guided scenic river float. Cameras and binoculars recommended!
