This was a great trip. Small family-owned outfit that is friendly, personable and fun. They really give you individual attention. We camped here for two nights and took the Lower Gauley day trip. It was a blast. The amenities are nice and clean, and the onsite pub was a fun ending to an awesome day on the river. Thanks to... More

I had a great time completing my bucket list item of rafting the Gauley River with Cantrell Ultimate Rafting. I was part of a 7 person group (women ranging in age from 36-53) celebrating the ultimate girls weekend in West Virginia. We had a few people in the group who did the lower Gauley River with Cantrell last year, the... More

We visited based on other TA reviews and weren't disappointed. We took a half day trip down the lower New River, exiting close to the New River bridge. The rapids were fun and nicely navigated by a knowledgeable guide. You may want to bring a change of clothes when you're done, otherwise you'll be wearing wet clothes for the rest... More

We had a great time rafting with Cantrell's & would definitely recommend it to friends. They are a family-run, friendly establishment with wonderful customer service. We did the express rafting trip which I'd highly recommend. TIP: For those of you debating between full day and an express trip, I understand that it is the same exact stretch of river on... More

We've used Cantrell Ultimate Rafting for the last 3 rafting trips to the New River. We will definitely be using them when we can schedule time for the Gauley river! Thanks for an awesome trip! --Kent

We had reservations for a half day in Hinton w/ Cantrells. Turns out our hotel (country Inn B&B was half a mile from base camp in Fayetteville. So they let us change ( to PM express) the day before. SO glad we did!! We've never WW rafted before but Stacy our guide, made it a memorable experience. Everything about this... More

Everything about our experience with Cantrell was great! It was nice to support a small business and we definitely felt the perks. Our raft was only our family of 4 and the guide, and the entire trip was only two rafts, giving a very personal trip. We loved rafting and hope to do it again. We will definitely come back... More

Went down for a bachelor weekend and had a blast! Our guide Adam, was awesome. Really, really knows the river and history of the area. We also stayed in one of the cabins on the property. Everything about Cantrell was great, could not have been more accommodating, friendly, or informative. A truly great group of people

We were driving from Orlando to New Jersey and decided to take a detour to go rafting in West Virginia. After searching TripAdvisor, and a conversation with Cantrell's locations in Fayetteville and Hinton, we decided to go rafting with Cantrell's on the Lower New River. What a great decision. Our guide Matt, was a West Virginia champion canoer who grew... More

It was a great day! We felt welcome from the moment we arrived. We went out with our seven and eight year old, who had a ton of questions, and our guides took the time to answer them all. Matt and Randy were great guides and they really made it fun for the kids. Our daughter really enjoyed all the... More
