we come every august and rent the bunk houses. the best rafting is actually when the water is deeper. if there isn't a lot of rain that its harder to navigate the rocks.

Agreed, when the water levels are higher and faster it is easier to navigate down the river. This is what makes dam release weekends so much fun. We will see you on the river in August! More

My daughter's Girl Scout troop did a 7 mile trip with all the girls and the dads on the Lehigh river. The trip was great and the girls and dads had a great time. The guides did a great job with safety and instructions and made sure we all stayed together. The river was perfect for the 4th grade girls... More

From check-in to check-out, everything worked like a well-oiled machine! There were crew members everywhere - helping with everything. Last time we went on a white water rafting trip in Delaware, we were on our own. It was very different this time. Crew kept us company, giving instructions at every turn. They were there to help if someone fell in... More

We had a blast with our 2 guides and 3 rafts! Lot's of fun rapids to maneuver. Our guides were experienced, and even did a couple of tricks at the lazy parts of the river. Lot's of ducks and birds to see, too. Definitely worth it! You can rent all kinds of gear depending on weather, and your needs to... More

My co-leader and I along with a few other troops from our town did the 9 mile white water rafting down the Lehigh River. Hands down one of the best trips we have done throughout our 9 years as a troop. The trip itself was great for all ages including the younger troops who came with us for the day.... More

Our Scout Raft Rally weekends are one of the best times to bring a Scout Troop to Whitewater Challengers. It sounds like the girls and adults both had a memorable weekend. We are happy to have been a part of it. More

We went on a rafting trip on Memorial Day Weekend as part of a soccer tournament package. Saturday was the tournament and Sunday was rafting. We were given the option of a calm trip or a more challenging trip. Since our group had mostly teens and adults, we opted for the challenging adventure. We started out at 9:30 am and... More

Thank you for the kind words. It sounds like you had a great Whitewater Challengers experience! Our adventure center offers various other outdoor activities like our zipline and paintball target range to add another element to your exciting day of rafting, but rafting is still the highlight. More

I planned a company outing here last year. It was really easy to book and make the payments for, and the directions on their website is spot on. We have twice the amount of people signed up to go this year because everyone raved about!

Thanks for the very kind words. Feels great when our hard work is appreciated. Hope to see you again this season. Lots of snow on the ground means lots of water in the river later this summer! More

My wife & I did the Lehigh River trip twice with the kids (less challenging ride) and once without the kids (more challenging ride) -- both after a water release. We had a blast all 3 times. WWC is very well run. Some tips: (a) wear water shoes or old sneakers that you don't mind saying g'bye to; (b) put... More
