  • 10 days notice is required for any changes or cancellations made on any type of floating rental equipment.  Deposits will be lost, no refunds or rain checks will be given for any unclaimed equipment.
  • A 30 day notice is needed for cancellations or changes to reservations of vacation homes or rental cabins.  If all cancellation requirements are met and a cancellation is approved a 10% service fee is assessed.
  • Any reservation made within the last 10 days (30 days on vacation home, rental cabin) prior to your arrival date is final. No money will be returned or rain checks offered if cancelled.


Rain and Flood Policy

Trips are made rain or shine. If extreme conditions prevent starting your float by 1:00pm or your float is called off you will be issued a rain check for the date of your choice, based on availability for up to 1 calendar year. If the storm has passed by 1:00, no rain checks will be issued. No credit for returning early from your trip. No rain checks for tenting, cabins, rv’s or vacation homes. In the event a flood forces an evacuation of your site, you will be offered a new site if space permits, or a rain check for a date of your choice, based on availability. If the water level is too low and there is too much dragging for canoes and rafts, the upper float will be switched to the lower float. At that time, spend more time on beaches and swimming to ensure a full day of fun. NO CASH REFUNDS
