Great experience using Sparrowhawk for a 6 mile float (raft) for 2 people on a warm day in mid-March. First, they were open and willing to work with us on a late day start! John, his wife, and his son were all super accommodating and friendly. Smooth experience with this hard working group. Grateful they were open this early in the season. Definitely recommend working with Sparrowhawk!

Sparrowhawk is very near and dear to my heart. Many a variety of travelers pass through, so each visit may be different than the last, but the owners are genuinely good people that do their utmost to maintain a beautiful environment with plenty of recreational activities and therapeutic atmosphere. I love this place for life!

We absolutely have had a great time here. Its so pretty. Quiet during the week with lots of river access. On the weekends it fills up pretty quickly and haven't had any bad issues.
