You will drive to our beautiful location  that is conveniently only 1/4 mile from I-40 and located on the Pigeon River. Once your group arrives and parks you will check-in. During check-in you will pay for your raft trip if you haven’t prepaid and everyone will have to have a waiver form signed and completed. (To speed up the process you can print and complete your WAIVER FORM and have it ready when you arrive.)

You will have an opportunity to change into your rafting clothes at our facility if you didn’t wear them. Be sure to bring proper footwear and a change of dry clothes. We sell river shoes if you need to purchase at that time.

Preparing for your rafting trip we will issue you your proper equipment. A PFD, a helmet, and a paddle. We’re getting ready!! (We are very proud of our high quality equipment and ask that you help us take care of it.)

You will all then listen and participate in our trip talk that covers all the “how-to’s” while you’re on the water. We make the talk entertaining, but it covers serious material that you will be required to know for your whitewater rafting experience.


Those of you rafting on the Upper section of the Pigeon River, we load in the bus and enjoy our nothing less than entertaining 6-mile bus ride that ends at the put-in point on the river! You watch your guides unload the boats and then you’re ready to go. Your guide will get you situated in your boats, and once you get in the water, it’s time for a WET, FUN RIDE!!

Your trip ends at our outpost where your vehicle is waiting for you with your nice dry clothes. Change and then don’t forget to come in and see YOUR PHOTOS that were taken on the rafting trip! You can purchase it on a custom CD or USB. You will have the digital images with rights to reproduce. We also have great t-shirts, hats, and other souvenirs available for purchase. If you had a great time, please let us know and leave a testimonial!

We love hearing and sharing your exciting stories after the trip, so hang out and enjoy a picnic, play some outside games, or just sit back and laugh for a while.

Enjoy the rest of your day and share with your friends and family more great memories!
