"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.

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!

"What an amazing time! This was our first time! It was high water and the rapids tremendous- needless to say we were nervous. Chris was the best guide. He made us feel safe and comfortable, was friendly, knowledgeable and super helpful! The BBQ was perfect and all the staff friendly, patient and helpful. We stayed at the Inn - conveniently located right next to starting point, comfortable and a great view.
