"Magic Falls made our rafting experience absolutely perfect. Some rafting guides take you along for “their” ride where the guides at Magic Falls make the experience about their guests. Haley was extremely enthusiastic, accommodating and a pleasure to spend time with. 10/10 recommend this company!"

I have been rafting twice with Magic Falls. The owner Dave has been our guide both trips! He's left a great impression on my friends and me. This company is exceptional. They make you feel right at home and the guides have great senses of humor. The staff are well trained and the meal you get at the end of the trip is great! We are 100% loyal to Magic Dave's White Water Rafting Company!

"Your staff is always professional, knowledgeable and courteous. We love to see the returning guides each summer and meet the new guides to hear their stories of why they chose West Forks. Our sincerest thanks to all of you at Magic Falls for all that is done to make each trip so much fun. We feel like family every year. This is our favorite summer weekend We cannot wait to book our next adventure.
