River Expeditions specializes in whitewater rafting, but offers so much more! Our guide, Dylan, was excellent--he took into account the types of people on our raft and gauged our sense of adventure well, determining which ways of approaching each rapid would give us the best experience. We did a ton of "surfing" and did get dumped once, but I never... More

I took some friends here during the week for 2 nights lodging and a day of rafting. We chose the bunk house since there were do many of us and we wanted affordable accommodations, and wasn't disappointed. I'll break down the different phases of our stay. Booking: simple enough. A rival company had told me months ago that if a... More

Joe Novonty, with over 14 years experience as a guide, made the trip for us. You can tell he really loves what he is doing and ensures everyone is safe while still having a great time. We will be back this fall to run the Gauley and will be asking for Joe. Oh and the camping, BBQ dinner, karaoke and... More

My husband and I decided to take a weekend trip up here for some camping and rafting and it was the best weekend I have had in a long time! When we checked in we expected to be assigned to a site but were told we could pick any tenting site we wanted. We found plenty of sites to choose... More

This place is very well organized and family-friendly! There's a ton of things to do and it's not that expensive! We definitely plan on going back to enjoy some of the other adventures offered!

We went here because we love white water and we found an excellent groupon rate. We were signed up for the Lower New Express Trip. It's a half day trip. Our guide, Brendan, was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and really let us know what was coming and how to handle it. This water was no joke! Brendan made us... More

With no reservation or exception, it is our opinion that River Expeditions expertly balances the thrill of whitewater adventure with an incredibly talented, knowledgable, and skilled team of river guides. This outfitter attracts and employs river guides from all over the county, whose resumes, more often than not, include knowledge and experience on some of the most difficult rivers in... More
