Getting some good exercise and just being out on the river for a while have a lot of people coming here. No shortage of good hotels, but
    if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. The starting location is a short drive from Richmond. The campgrounds here at Rivercity Rafting are pretty good.
