Located in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina just minutes from Dillsboro and Cherokee.

You may choose to have a river guide to help tame the rapids or have your own adventure!

We reacted with our 4 yr old granddaughter. Great fun! Highlight: jumping from a 10 ft rock into the cool water. Staff really friendly, capable, well run. Facilities great. We would go again. 😃

Cannot say enough good about this outfitter! This is a family oriented business that encourages children to experience the river. The owners and staff are incredibly personable and most welcoming. They only want you to have the most fun you possibly can.
