News & Current Events

For Fri 7/21-Sun 7/23 

We may have some unpredictable summer weather this weekend so we are relaxing our policies a bit.  Although it will not rain all weekend, we may have some intermittent rain/storms to contend with.  We do plan to run river trips as long as lightening and storms are not eminent.  We will determine this by watching several weather radar systems.

CAMPING:  You may reschedule your camping if you choose to do so, and will be given a full credit for a future stay during the 2017 season.  Camping continues 7 days/week thru early Dec.  You must contact us by noon of your day of arrival to be eligible for a credit.

RIVER TRIPS:  You may postpone or reschedule your river trip if you contact us anytime up to 2 hours before your trip, and you will receive a full credit for a future trip.  We will make OUR decisions for this Saturday's trips around 7:30am and will monitor the weather throughout the day.  If WE cancel trips due to weather, you will automatically be given a same-season credit for a future trip.      

RIVER LEVEL:  This weekend's predicted rainfall totals will NOT likely affect the river to the point of where we have high water conditions.  Currently the river is at an average level, so it would take much more rain than predicted to make the water level too high.  

Thanks for your patience and understanding!
