Saftey Rules:

1. Children must be 12 years of age for the Stony Canyon Rafting Run, 8 years of age for the Family Rafting Run, and 14 years of age to inflatable kayak. There are no exceptions. Ensure that your children will feel comfortable rafting, you will be dropped off by a shuttle and runs are long and secluded. There is no turning back!

2. You must listen to your raft guide. He knows what he is doing! Even if you have been whitewater rafting before, your guide knows the river best!

3. Do not take anything you don’t want to lose on the river with you! Including valuables, car keys, cell phones, jewelry or anything else that will sink!

4. Pay attention! Your Guide will brief you before your run. Listen to what he says and have a great time!


Stonycreek rafting, river tubing, swimming and river activities have both inherent and unknown risks and dangers. These include but are not limited to injury or loss of life. The Stonycreek river has NO LIFE GUARDS so try to stay in your raft. If you do fall out there will be a guide with you to assist you in getting back into the raft. You will be asked to sign a waiver and release of liability for yourself and anyone else in your group before rafting down the river. Children MUST be 12 (twelve) years old to go rafting with Coal Tubin’ for the Stony Canyon run, and 8 (eight) years old for the Family Run – Parents & Guardians – you are 100% responsible for yourselves, your children and others in your party at all times.
