Rent one of our platform cabin-style tents and enjoy the riverfront view while sitting on your own private veranda. Or, rent a 2-person roomy dome tent which comes with 2 thick foam pads. Enjoy some peaceful moments, take a walk on our Sierra Nature Trail or find a private bench or rock near the river that invites leisure activities.

Want some more excitement after rafting? Play a fun game of volleyball, ping pong, or horseshoes.
