You need to bring your own bedding, towels and toiletries. You can bring your own firewood or there is some available for purchase.

If you don’t feel like bringing a lot of food with you, there is an IGA grocery store located very close to Morgan’s. There is also an amazing Mexican Restaurant, El Reparo, down the road.

When you stay overnight, you have access to restrooms and a shower house that are a short walking distance away. We enjoyed the horse shoe pit before making a bonfire that night.

The river is steps away from the lodge where you turn in the keys to your vehicle as a safety precaution and sign your waivers.

We opted for the raft.

My dad was joining us for this adventure and this was a lot more comfortable for the four of us.

Our raft trip lasted about 3 hours which was a good amount of time. We still had a few times when the kids jumped out to play in the water along the way too.
