Went with 16 guys for a bachelor party and did the raft and camping package. The guides are talkative, interactive, and professional. The full day rafting started out slow on the upper kicking horse River but it gives you time to prepare for what's ahead...More

Had a great time, all of the staff was very friendly and personable. Facilities could use some improving, like better washrooms for changing and cleaning up after rafting.
