General Information

Reservation Necessity

Saturdays and holiday weekends are our busiest times. It is typical for full capacity to be reached, with rafts and kayaks being the first vessels to fill up. Therefore, early reservations for these days are essential.

Weekdays and Sundays do not require reservations and walk-ins for Jack’s Fork trips are welcome!

Note: Reservations for all Current River trips are required at least a day in advance.

Online Booking Notes: 

  • Alley to Eminence is our most accommodating trip that allows for floating with any vessel and flexible start times.
  • If the online booking does not allow you to select a quantity of vessels for a trip, particularly on Saturdays, it means we are sold out. Give us a call to double check or get on a waitlist.
  • If you do not see your desired trip, please give us a call to make inquiries and reservations.
  • Online booking shuts off at 5pm on the day prior. Walk-ins or calls the morning-of with at least an hour notice are welcome.
  • Private vessels cannot be reserved online. If you plan on bringing them along with your rentals, please let us know on a phone call prior to your trip or at check-in.
  • Rafts and tubes are not recommended for every route and will not be displayed for such unrecommended routes.

Group Reservations
If you are floating with a group of people, but are all paying separately, you have the ability to make your own reservation, but still be kept together with your group. Just come up with a common group name and let us know on the phone or fill it in on the “Group Name” section when booking online.

Examples of group names include a last name like “Williams” or an event name like “William’s Family Reunion.”

Water Levels

To evaluate floating conditions, we refer to USGS (guage height feet) for each access point. We uphold to NPS river closures at flood stage. 

Jack’s Fork River: Above Alley Spring (known as the upper Jack’s Fork), is highly dependent on rainfall. This means that water levels are usually too low for floating after May or early June. Please call to inquire on water levels prior to setting up your trip on the upper Jack’s Fork. Below Alley Spring is spring-fed, meaning that it is floatable all year round. USGS Water Levels

  • 17 Bridge

Deposit & Cancellation Policy

A 35% deposit will be taken at the time of reservation and will be deducted from your total rental price on the day of your float. All major credit cards accepted.

If it is still raining at 11am on the day of your trip or we deem the river unsafe to float, your deposit will be returned in full.
