We Will Use Sands Again When We ReturnAnnie S
“Absolutely fabulous experience. We did the sixteen mile scenic float plus whitewater and lunch combo. Everything about the trip was outstanding. There were 7 in my party and the whitewater was a little scary for the 9 year old, but the rest of us wish we had this job so we could do this everyday. Our guide was Ben and he was superb.”

Scenic and Whitewater Combo TripDonNHeidi
“We did the morning scenic trip with Justin who was knowledgeable, fun and helpful. We stopped for breakfast and the camp cook was terrific. The scenery was beautiful. We enjoyed it very much. Then we had Troy for the white water trip and he was a riot! He was very competent and made everyone feel at ease with the trip but even more he was very entertaining . Troy had a great rapport with everyone on the raft and kept us laughing . It was a thrilling experience that we would love to do again.”
River TripTripAdvisor Comment
“We called last minute with a group of 11 people ranging in age from 7 - 73. They booked us immediately. Everyone at Sands was overly friendly and kind. The bus driver gave us a guided tour of the area on our way to the river (completely unexpected). Ben, our guide was over the top fun and friendly. Engaging our children, finding the best spots on the river for a safe but thrilling ride. My kids, wife and I will never forget this trip.”
