We booked a 50th birthday party by going white water rafting through this company. There were 9 of us so we had a full boat. We we able to choose to go in one boat or split between two. As much as we appreciated the choice, we went in one. The guide was awesome! Funny but serious when needed, as... More

We had about as perfect an experience as possible the weekend we rafted the lower New River with our guide Scott (Scemery). Scott's sense of humor made the trip a lot of fun while his expertise ensured we have a safe-yet exhilerating-trip. We had a very nervouse rafter on our boat (because of a bad experience out of the country)... More

We went to AOTG on a last minute trip. We didn't arrive until late in the evening. We were still on the road and since the office was closing, the manager called my cell to give us detailed instructions on where to go and what to do to get our keys and find the cabin. Nice touch. we stayed in... More

We did a 5 day stay. First night in a tent (clean, nice campground) then 3 three nights in a Sportsman Cabin. We really enjoyed the simple but clean aspect of the cabin. It was the perfect spot to relax after our adventures. We did the Gravity Zipline. Loved it! My 14 year old was a bit nervous, but after... More

Did the half-day rapid run on the New River. Great introduction to this river, especially if this is your first time whitewater rafting. Will definitely be back in the spring when water levels are higher and in the fall for the dam release on the Gauley. This company is awesome and our guide, Kevin, was fantastic. I highly recommend them.

We rafted the "family lower new" trip which was simply awesome all the way around, just enough thrill for the kids (ages 10 and 13) to LOVE it but never did we feel unsafe or that our guide wasn't in complete control. (Doug is fantastic btw - senior level guide, 19 years experience, funny as all get out) We also... More

Ran the half-day New River whitewater trip with Rivermen (JoBo was our Guide) and had an awesome time. These guys have it down to a science - worth the extra $$.

We went white water rafting with this company in August, 2015. We had never done this before. For some perspective, I am a 66 year old woman who is not particularly athletic. I went with my husband, a 70 year old man who is very fit. We ended up having a very fun time on the river. I found the... More

Just do it. What a great place to raft. I've been rafting with this outfit since 1979. They have just gotten better each time we come here. This time they have added a great pool area where we relaxed and had some drinks and snacks after our day on the white water.
