Didn't get a chance to raft but we hung out at the bar with Nancy and Richie and stayed in one of the cabins on site...great people, great music, great drinks! And the cabin was great, clean and comfortable and accommodating with great views!!!

First off, I have been going to WV for Whitewater fun for years! Recently the outfitters in the state have chnaged quite a bit through consolidation and "resorting". What makes Cantrell's great is they are a family business that treats all customers like family and haven't changed what make WV Wile and Wonderful. I love Nancy's personal service, friendly demeanor... More

We used Cantrell for the first time this past weekend. I cannot speak too highly of Nancy and the team. Their level of client service was superb. Nothing was too much trouble. We went out on the lower Gauley with our guide (Duncan) - who was knowledgeable, witty and made it a great all-round experience (even with the cold weather!).... More

Have used Cantrell numerous times over the years. This year 2 trips: a summer trip with youth on the New and just returned from a guys trip on the Gauley. I have never been disappointed and appreciate the exceptional attention paid by all (from the guides and support staff to the owners) to make sure we had a great experience.... More

It was a fantastic trip. Our guide Stacy was very professional and guided us through the rapids expertly. Safety was a priority but she definitely focused on making sure we had a great time. I also really appreciated learning about the history of the area from her as well. The camping at Cantrell was very laid back and fun, the... More

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
