"Had an awesome day on the river with Chinook Rafting. Took my 15 and 19 year old kids and wife on the Horseshoe Canyon option. It was just as advertised! Challenging, exciting, fast paced with 3 awesome stretches and enough time in between to laugh and celebrate. The optional cliff jumps are a must and you are only cold for a quick second." - Bob Hatlestad (Google Review)
