3. 1 hour 50 minutes – Vermillion River Rafting

4 out of 5 stars!

Maybe you are looking for a watery adventure even closer to home. Vermillion River Rafting offers just that! For only 30 dollars a person, a group of four or six friends could enjoy a fun and relaxing day rafting down the river. They also rent “funyaks” which are inflatable one-man kayaks. Although their rapids are rated only 1’s and 2’s on a 5-point scale, some of the drops look to be intense. This nearly mile stretch of the river has multiple species of wildlife to see, some natural waterfalls to explore and plenty of places to get off your raft for lunch.
