During our Two Day Family Rafting Package you spend your first day on a fun family whitewater rafting trip suitable for guests who weigh a minimum of 50lb (23kg). You don’t need to paddle as your guide uses oars to take your raft down a more conservative route on the river. Throughout the trip your family is having fun in the water, body surfing the waves, swimming and cliff jumping*. Your second day is spent at the OWL lakeside Resort playing and relaxing.

On your second day you get full access to the OWL Resort, choose your own activity or relax for the day on the beach. Play a round of frisbee golf, a game of beach volleyball, or try your luck at horseshoes. The resort is not a licensed establishment so our guests are welcome to bring their own alcoholic beverages. Ice cream, snacks, cold drinks and ice are available for sale on site. We also boast a large floating swim dock with slide, a disc golf course, volleyball courts and a hot sauna.

*Cliff Jumping is not available at certain water levels. Some rapids along the river can be too big for family rafting and there is the possibility you may have to walk around one or more rapids during your family rafting trip.

Most weekday Family Rafting has a morning start, while all weekend family rafting has an afternoon departure.


Arrival & Check In

Check in at the Office. Everyone in your group must come into the office upon arrival to sign a waiver. Please note that dinner is not included on the night of arrival: you can bring meals with you, book an additional meal before arrival, or eat on the road. Check in begins at 5:00 PM; please NO arrivals before this time.

First Night's Overnight Stay

Find a spot in one of our campgrounds and set up your tent. Venture down to our sandy beach before dark for a paddle or swim. Relax fireside in the main pavilion with board games or a film in the lounge. Pop into our office to borrow frisbees, horseshoes, volleyballs and more, available to help you make the most of our facility.


Start the day off right with a hot buffet style breakfast served at 8:00 AM. Each day OWL’s Kitchen Crew serves a fresh hearty meal to prepare you for a full day to come. You may find bacon or breakfast sausages, hash browns or home fries, scrambled or fried eggs, or another home-style breakfast option: menus vary from day to day, so we cannot guarantee availability of all listed options at each meal. All breakfasts will have fresh fruit, cereal, toast & toppings, and juice, coffee & tea.

Family Rafting Briefing

Your day of Family Rafting starts at the OWL Resort with an orientation that gives you an overview of the day. Collect your helmet and lifejacket and get ready to go.

Shuttle to Put-In

The bus will depart promptly at 10:00 AM. Please ensure you have dropped your car keys at the office and put your dry clothes in the duffel bags before jumping on the bus.

Get Wet

After a short shuttle to the starting point, you meet your guide. You climb into your raft and your guide will take you through some on-water instructions. Once everyone has received a safety briefing, we descend down our first rapid. Smile for the camera: our photographer will meet you on the water to capture you on out on the rapids.


There is always time for some surfing, which is where we take our rafts back up into the whitewater. This leaves us totally wet and anticipating more rapids! Whitewater alternates with flat water: you’ll have the chance to swim and float in between the adrenaline rush of the rapids.

Juice Break

We pull up to some of the big cliffs or float along the flat water and have a juice break along the way. You may get to cliff jump during this break, depending on water levels.

More Rapids

Water features and the channel we raft depend on the water levels, but you’ll have a great time no matter what the level is.


At the bottom of the rapids, meet OWL Rafting’s signature Pontoon Boats. Once you hop aboard the pontoon boats, you will find your dry clothes or towels and a hot BBQ lunch waiting for you. Enjoy your hearty meal as you cruise back to the OWL Resort.

Back at the Resort

Once back at the OWL Resort, please return your life jackets and helmets to the gear loft before joining us at the beach for your last workout of the day, the “Beach Party”, as we put away your rafts.

Rafter Wrap Up

Once the Beach Party is over, get changed before meeting back in the pavilion for the video replay of your day. Our guides will meet you to watch the fun all over again.


Dinner will be ready at the ring of the bell at 6:30 PM. Head down to the pavilion for an open-air grilled steak dinner, with dinner rolls, baked potatoes, corn on the cob, garden salad, and hot apple crumble and ice cream for dessert. Stuffed peppers are available for registered vegetarians.

Relax for the night

Head back to your campsite or hang out in the pavilion by the fire. Recount the day and get ready for a day of resort fun tomorrow.


Wake up for a day or resort fun and start it off right with a hearty breakfast. Most Days OWL’s breakfast is served at 8:00 am and we suggest you get it while it’s hot!

Stay and Relax

The OWL Resort has a variety of activities to try your hand at. Pop into our office for some Frisbees and play a round on the Frisbee Golf course. Borrow the horseshoes and compete for first place at the horseshoe pits. Put your bathing suit on and head to the beach. OWL’s sandy beach has kayaks, canoes, stand up paddle boards and more for you to use. Make your way to the swim dock or sunbath on the beach chairs. Your resort day is yours to fill with all that the OWL Resort has to offer.

Lunch at the Resort

Don’t stray too far… the lunch bell will ring to call you back to the pavilion for a BBQ lunch. Lunch includes 3 salads, a hot BBQ item and toppings, fruit, drinks, and cookies for dessert.

More to do

Bring your own bikes and try out OWL’s pump track or head up the road to check out Beachburg’s extensive trail system. Round up some friends and start a volleyball game on one of the many beach volleyball courts. Looking for a slower pace? Check out the movies in the lounge or the board games in the pavilion. The pigs and chickens love a visit, pop up after lunch time and you may see them at their lunch time chowing down. If the weather is cooler bring some marshmellows and make s’mores on the fire or head to the sauna and showers to relax in the heat.
