“Classic locals favorite for a celebratory dinner. In an historic log home, this quaint restaurant churns out consistently delicious fare. Order the rack of lamb or elk tenderloin and thank me later. The ice cream pie is the best ice cream pie ever! ”

Sporting Goods Shop
“For first timers and those coming back annually this is a must. Mad River has several types of trips. I'm a local and have been around different guides for years. I would not go anywhere else. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about local history, flora and fauna. In the scenic trip you will see so much and you can take any age range (very, very safe). I can't remember a trip where I did not see eagles, moose and deer. But try the white water as well, it's a blast and if you purchase the photos you have will have a great memory for years to come.”
