Brown's Canyon Bonus Half-Day Rafting Trip

On our Brown’s Canyon Bonus Half-Day Rafting Trip, we do two more rapids than other rafting companies on the Arkansas River. Other rafting companies raft 10 miles and only do six of the major rapids in Brown’s Canyon on their half-day trips. They miss the last two big rapids, Seidel’s Suckhole and Twin Falls, because they use the public takeout at Hecla Junction. We lease a private takeout so we raft 12 miles and do all eight of the major rapids in Brown’s Canyon plus all of the intermediate rapids and all of the smaller rapids. We include ALL of the rapids in Brown's Canyon and give you the most rapids possible on a half-day trip! No other company gives you more rapids!

 

 

 

 

Brown's Canyon One-Day Rafting Trip

On our Brown’s Canyon One-Day Trip, we put on the river at our office in Johnson Village so we do not have to shuttle our customers to a public put-in. This is not only more convenient for our customers but it is also more economical for us. We come off the river on private property two miles below Hecla Junction so we raft ALL of the rapids in Brown's Canyon without adding slow water to the end of your trip. Other companies use the public takeout at Stone Bridge so they add two miles of slow water to the end of their trips. Since we put on the river at our office and we come off the river at a private takeout, we give you a higher quality one-day rafting trip at a lower price.

Two-Day Trips

On our two-day trips, we raft Brown’s Canyon on the first day of your trip and give you a choice of rafting the Narrows only or rafting both the Numbers and the Narrows on your second day of rafting.  For most adults, families, or youth groups, we recommend rafting Brown’s Canyon on the first day and the Narrows on the second day.  For physically active adults who want the challenge of rafting Class V whitewater, we recommend rafting Brown’s Canyon on the first day and both the Numbers and Narrows on the second day.

 

            Our deluxe two-day trips are a total package. We raft all of the rapids in Brown’s Canyon on the first day of your trip and come off the river at our private campsite, which is in a beautiful, secluded spot just below Brown's Canyon. We set up the tents and cook the meals.  You bring your own sleeping bag, warm clothes to wear around camp, and personal gear.  (If you prefer, you can rent a sleeping bag from us for $12.00/night.)  When you come off the river, you pick the tent you want to stay in and change into your dry clothes.  While we are preparing you a delicious dinner (with your choice of steak or salmon), you can relax by the river, play volleyball, or pitch horseshoes.  After a hearty breakfast the next morning, we shuttle you to the next section of river you have chosen to raft.  Our deluxe two-day adventures include two great days of rafting, lunch on the river each day, dinner the first evening, and breakfast the second morning.  We offer you a better camping experience for less money than companies that carry their camping gear on their rafts and camp on public land in Brown’s Canyon.

            Our basic two-day trips are for people who want to camp on their own on public land or stay in a motel.  On our basic two-day trip, you meet us at our office each day and we provide the rafting and the lunch on the river each day.

            Our basic plus camp two-day trips are for groups who want to raft with us and camp at our campsite but prefer to provide and cook their own meals and provide and set up their own tents.  We furnish the campsite, a large cook tent, a campfire area with firewood, a propane grill, and a camp host.
