All guests of ODR and KRE are responsible for taking a hand in setting up base camp, paddling the raft, navigating the river, and will work as a team for a safe and memorable experience!

Hear what customers are saying about past ODR and KRE guided rafting trips:
"What I appreciate most about the trip was that all of the planning, organizing, communications, maps, directions etc were done for us. It makes a trip like this very 'do-able' in a regular weekend. It’s especially nice to not have to worry about driving... This trip was very well organized, the gear from ODR was in good condition, the food provided was plentiful and it was a very pleasant way to spend the weekend. KRE is a class act company with friendly, experienced staff." - NPS spouse/ dependent

"This was my first time rafting and it was a blast! The price seemed a little high before I went but the trip exceeded my expectations and was well worth the money... [The] guide service was great, the camping gear was great, and the rafting was ridiculously fun. Also, a shout-out to Matt for the great program and putting up with the lot of us." - Spc, A-Co, POM

 

Full Trip Details:

We will be departing Saturday, July 2, at 0900 from ODR bldg, 228. We will make a food stop en-route to give everyone the opportunity to have a quick bite about 1100.

There are no tracks, no seat belts, and the raft is entirely under the guidance of a certified KRE raft guide and participants (you). All participants and guide will be outfitted with PFD (personal flotation device). ODR and KRE will accept no liability for lost or broken/ submersed personal possessions.

A hot dinner will be served, and guests are welcome to bring any special food/ beverages and dietary needs they might wish to have with them.
