Another great family activity that’s offered almost every afternoon of your stay is rafting and kayaking.

Rafting is suitable for the whole family and is a great chance to relax and enjoy first-hand, the sights and sounds of the Wild and Scenic Klamath River.

Every morning the shooting range is available for guests as part of a family summer package. You and your family can try out the sporting clays trap course, learn basic firearm safety, or even go for your NRA basic pistol certification.

Additionally, other authentic frontier sports are offered including black powder shooting, archery and hawk tossing.
Younger children who aren’t old enough to participate in some of the family adventures are provided with their own program designed just for them.
