The river trip

Jul 19, 2015 Krishna CA, United States

What a way to start the weekend, a rope course challenge and white water rafting. Our white water guide "Lora" was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Next is the Middle Fork along with Mother Lode River Center and hopefully Lora as our guide.

The staff are attentive and available. Lunch and dinner was was so much more than we were expecting in a river camp setting. Our "glam" tent cabin was located in a private area with a river view. The bed was super comfortable. The highlite for us was the 1/2 day rafting trip. Our guide gave great instructions and we experienced calm water that lead to some class II's and the most exciting class III's. We were in the very front so had the best view and the biggest dunks in the rapids.

I want to return and raft the Middle and North Forks!

They were very accommodating. Service was great and their attractions were very fun.

The Staff was pleasant, encouraging, and very accomodating. This was a gift for my grandson for his 13th birthday. He enjoyed the morning activities on the rock wall, walking on the log like a balance beam and the leap of faith. The river rafting adventure in the afternoon was awesome. He had a great time.

Everyone was very helpful answering any questions about the current activities as well as possible future booking adventures. The day's actiivities were very organized.
