Great family fun trip. Went in July and according to the guides the water level was slightly above normal. Not too much whitewater on the family trip - enough to have fun though. They have separate dam release whitewater trips for the more adventurous of the group. Guides were great, lunch halfway through the trip, price was reasonable and easy... More

Excellent family-friendly trip, 3-4 hours down the gorgeous Lehigh river, around 10 rapids in high season, break for lunch with hot dogs & restrooms available

I was on the river sunday with pocono whitewater and it was great. they are very thorough in preparing you for navigating the rapids. There were a lot of rafts in the group, and I think it was too many. i felt like we were in a bumper boats ride. A lot of rafters are pretty clueless and get stuck... More

Night rafting trip was great. Guides are fun, we were soaked! Rapids were mild. My first time rafting and I would do it again! The bonfire afterwards was nice. The bathrooms and changing facilities were clean. We did not use a wet suit and were the only ones that didn't but the river was warm and it was hot out.... More

We enjoyed the family rafting trip. The guides were very friendly and helpful. The only negative aspect of the trip was waiting for so long after we checked in. We were advised to check in at 1:15pm and got there at 1pm. We then sat for over an hour waiting for our briefing and didn't get into the water until... More

This was our first time whitewater rafting and the Family Style trip was perfect for us! The rapids were never too much to handle (we never fell out), the hotdog lunch was timed great and we all want to do it again. The guides were very helpful, fun and engaging. We would definitely recommend Pocono Whitewater!

We had alot of fun but it was exhausting, the full day includes biking, hiking and rafting. The biking portion is the most exhausting, not because it's 25 miles but because the bike seats are not comfortable, after the first 10 miles the seat started to become extremely painful to sit on. I would highly recommend a seat cushion. Besides... More

Excellent guides- on/off the river. Limited/small rapids but it was expected in the 'family style' rafting;for folks wanting more action, go with the 'dam' release tour. The lunch break was good as well. There's a bit of driving(20 min school bus ride each way) down to Jim Thorpe and back up to the main office but all are described in... More

I went with my 12 yo son about 2 weeks ago for a dam release. whole experience form start to finish was fantastic. guides were great. felt safe and supported by staff the whole time. The water level was a little low but certainly not their fault. I definitely recommend renting or bringing water guns to supplement the buckets in... More

We rode the dam release trip which took about 4.5 hours on the water. Plenty of rapids to keep it exciting throughout the entire trip. Would recommend even without much experience.
