Challenge the Tieton with River Recreation
Catch excitement within a limited time! The Tieton River is at its swiftest during the month of September when the floodgates of Rimrock Lake open. As a result, the generally calm river transforms into a fast and furious course. During this month, the Tieton River boasts Class 3 and 4 rapids. Water movement that is rated in these tiers is widely known for high speeds and bumpy rides. In other words, Mother Nature has set up a mean coaster for rafters to challenge.
Are you and your friends brave enough to conquer what the mighty Tieton has to offer? Test your skills and let our experienced river guides show you the way. Whether you’re a first-timer or a regular thrill-seeker, we let you experience the river to the fullest.
Every raft group is provided the proper equipment–including safety gear. On top of that, a seasoned guide will be with your group throughout the trip. Each of our guides is thoroughly trained and experienced in whitewater rafting, and we also make a point to teach vital techniques and calls that make your experience safe and enjoyable.
All rafting trips include a wetsuit, booties, a PFD for everyone, as well as a guide in each boat, all safety gear, and round-trip shuttle service to your car.
Expect to get wet! River Recreation rafts rain or shine. River Recreation is happy to offer you our comfortable and spacious picnic area with plenty of umbrella-covered tables to enjoy your self-packed picnic-style lunch either before or after the rafting excursion. Please do not bring keys, phones, or anything you cannot lose with you on the river. We will have a secure place to leave your car keys.
Bring suntan lotion, a swimsuit, a bottle of water to drink, some cash, an extra fleece top if it is cold, a change of clothes, and you can leave a towel in your car for after the trip.
