Meeting Location

This trip meets in Superior, MT. Our address is 62 Lynch Ranch Lane, Superior, Montana 59872. 

From I-90 you’ll exit at Superior (Exit #47).  Turn south at the bottom of the off-ramp (that’s “right” if coming from Spokane, “left” if from Missoula).  You’ll come to a frontage road called “Diamond Road.”  Turn left (east) on Diamond and you’ll pass a “Town Pump” gas station on your left.  Proceed one (1) mile to Cedar Creek road.  You’ll see five or so large white propane tanks at this intersection.  If you go over a bridge over Cedar Creek you went too far. Turn RIGHT on Cedar Creek Road and proceed 1.5 miles south.  Look for a driveway on the left by a blue house with white trim and a ROW sign.

ROW is a fantastic company! Our group has taken this rafting trip as a memorial ride for a family member who loved rafting. Everyone at the company not only helps us make this trip every year (we've been doing it since 2015) but they go above and beyond in making it special as a memorial celebration. It was hard not going in 2020 due to the pandemic and we can't wait to be back on the water with this team again soon. Our group always has a mix of skill levels - we all always feel safe and able to do everything we need to on the water to have a fantastic time. Can't recommend them enough!

We had such a great day. This was my 2nd trip with ROW and my girlfriend's first. Our guide was fun and had lots of interesting things to share with us about the geology and wildlife. We had our own guide with no other paddlers in our raft due to COVID. The staff takes care to keep groups distanced from each other and takes the COVID guidelines seriously, yet not get in the way of having fun. I recommend this trip to anyone going on their first rafting trip. It's fun and scenic with some big rapids, but nothing scary.

My husband and I have done many river trips in the past and my sister asked us to join her as she had never done one. The guides made the trip fun and we all had a blast!! We would definitely like to do another trip :-)

Too much fun. We didn't know river rafting even existed on the Clark Fork.
It was beautiful and we were treated to first class fun. Our guide made us feel special as he wouldn't let the other rafts ALL from the air force base, splash us oldies. But they sure tried to take our guide out, to no avail 😊. We laughed so hard it hurt. We also learned about the river and its history.
We would love to find out more about the other trips available.
I'm rating this as 100% perfect in every way.
Respectfully,
John and Caroline Griffin

What a great raft trip. It is especially perfect for first timers or for a trip with kids. My 12 year old son and his friend had a blast. It's an easy day trip from North Idaho. Our guide was extremely personable and helpful. The scenery was magnificent. There were plenty of opportunities to jump in the river, float in the water, and jump off cliffs. There were also exciting rapids to make it a well rounded day.

The Clark Fork was the perfect day trip! There was just enough excitement to keep all ages enthralled and completely engaged. The guides were excellent! They all are a fantastic mix of professional and personable, always keeping our safety in the forefront yet ensuring everyone was having a great time. I highly recommend this river trip.

My families fist rafting experience in Aug 2020 was a pleasure. Clark Fork river was just the right exposure for my families first time out. We are hooked. The guides did an excellent job, were super fun and friendly. We hope to return soon.

We booked the last day of the 2020 season and got the first day of rain of the season- go figure! The employees at ROW were amazing to get us outfitted with extra gear last minute. We stayed warm the whole trip!
The lunch was wonderful and the EXPERIENCE was beyond what I had hoped for. Our family LOVED rafting and we hope to do it every year now and bump up in difficulty. We are a large family and had to split up into two rafts. BOTH guides did an awesome job! What a great family vacation. Thanks for making it worth while ROW.👍👍
