The river is pristine and natural. The float is not interrupted by signs of civilization. The river is also known for fine fishing.

Fun little section with the put in and take out less than a mile apart. Great section for quick trips when you just need to get in the water and mess around

Just stopped by to see it, nice enough. People please, please follow Leave No Trace, there are sections littered with trash. It takes away from the experience for everyone.

I'll update my review once we get on the river.

Big River is a great river to float with the family and enjoy some fishing. Very pristine. Highly reccomended.
