Glad I trusted the Google reviews and went with Franklin Floats :) Franklin is such a friendly dude, as is everyone working there. This was our first time ever doing a float. We did the raft with two adults and 3 young children (4, 6 and 9), and they provided life jackets for our kids. We did the short float, and someone was waiting at the landing are to help spot us, but that won't always be the case so look carefully for the sign after the bridge! It did take us about 3 hours, which was perfect for our family. The Black River is gorgeous. The trip had the perfect amount of calm spots and teeny rapids - just enough to make it fun and exciting.

My friend and I camped and floated last minute. When I called, Franklin was so helpful. I really wished we new about them before. It was ones of the best floats I've ever had on the Black River. Franklin, his wife and Bob were very down to earth, welcoming and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay there. I will definitely be back. My son, his wife and her family will really enjoy it as much as I did. I'm really looking forward to my trip. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸš£β€β™€οΈπŸŠβ€β™€οΈπŸ•οΈ

We showed up last minute (2pm) and lucky for us we were still able to float! The guy was super nice and even locked up our keys. When we returned I noticed their garden and asked about it. His wife showed us around and gave us tips/ideas for our garden. Super nice people. The bus drivers were great too.
