This was the perfect day out on the river! Enough room for me, my boyfriend and the cooler, we set out for an easy float on the sturdy raft. You have to pay attention and... continued

It was so much fun! The rafts were very sturdy even when our dogs walked up and down the sides. The river was beautiful and peaceful. At the end, it was very convenient to just jump in our car and drive home. We'll be back!
