We had so much fun rafting with our 2 year old. It was really relaxing and beautiful. We went in the morning and had no trouble finding parking, but when we returned it looked pretty packed.
This a great place To have fun with the whole family and cool off on a hot day. My family and I had a great time. The staff with very helpful and they all had a great attitude. Can't wait to go back next year.
