For this, our 10th anniversary of running the Cheat with Cheat River Outfitters our group consisted of 12 rafters. I had the pleasure of being in Dan's boat, a senior guide with literally hundreds of trips down the Cheat. The other raft was piloted by Haze, an equally qualified (and funny) guide that I have ridden with in previous years.... More

We had a group of 4 for afternoon rafting on the Cheat Narrows, which is a class 3 rafting trip. The driveway to Cheat River Outfitters is interesting to say the least...very steep. If you're a local, you'll be just fine, but if you're from out of town, you'll think your car will never make it up or down safely...Just... More

Once we were ready to go the staff once again went out of there way to help all customers involved. We made it to the river in... More

For my trip I went on the Cheat Narrows afternoon. It was my first whitewater trip ever so I didn't know what to expect. The guides made me feel very comfortable. The Cheat river is absolutely gorgeous. I loved just watching the beauty of the mountains and boulders go by. The best part was that we could swim and float... More

The equipment for the river, very professional guides and service were all first rate. Unfortunately, the van returning us to the outfitter blew a tire and there was no jack, so our return to Albright was delayed, but I suppose it added to the adventure, and we got to see how imaginative Travis and his assistants were in fashioning a...

WOW what an experience, my wife bought a 2 for 2 gift certificate at Christmas and we finally had the opportunity to use it over the weekend (weekend after memorial day.) There was some confusion as to exactly what the gift certificate included and what we were signing up to do but it was no big deal. We originally thought... More

The Cheat is a rafting river, but WV has several other options. Guess if it is convenient, it is worth an afternoon. Grandma can do it!

Have been down the Cheat River every Memorial Day weekend for the last 6 years... safe to say we wouldn't go anywhere else besides Cheat River Outfitters. They have been more than accommodating to our group which as been as high as 29 people. All of the guides are awesome so it doesn't matter who you get (don't tell Dan... More
