Fantastic full day rafting trip! Our guide Clark was amazing; hilarious and well traveled, his area knowledge, rafting skill and personality were extraordinary. He also took the time to spend some quality time with us at the 8 Mile Bar and Grill (excellent food) and gave us directions to an incredible local hiking trail. We are planning to do it... More

We went on a Thursday before a weekend of camping. There couldn't have been a better way to start off that trip. It was my first time rafting, and we had the best guide ever, Pat. He was super funny, had tons of awesome facts, and was more than willing to take our group through the harder sections of the... More

This was my first experience with white water rafting and while I was nervous, my nerves quickly faded as I was immediately impressed with the professionalism of the staff and the cleanliness of super-nice facility. Our guide, MacGyver, was fantastic. He was funny and full of great stories that made for great entertainment as we enjoyed the beauty around us.... More

The first place that came to mind was white water rafting. I had previously experienced it with Echo Canyon and had an amazing... More

Our rafting could not of been more enjoyable, well maybe if I had a beer or two. Saw big horn sheep, some nice #3 rated rapids, learned about lots of vegetation and local history from our outstanding guide Clark !

Thanks so much for joining Echo for your raft trip, and for posting a review! While we do see lower water flows in September, there are certainly some distinct advantages - fewer other rafters on the river, quieter trip, gentle rapids, and more wildlife. I'm happy to hear Clark did a great job for your crew. Please come back and... More
