It was my first time, and they treat me like family, the food was good, my guide "Fisher" he was great. I really enjoyed the rafting. Definitely I will go back, Nancy was so friendly, so as Stacy and all the people that work there. The cabin was very clean and even the bathroom.

Rafting the New River wirh Cantrell was a great experience. Nancy was an excellent host while Stacy and Adam provided an educational experience along with great fun! Stacy has obviously studied the river and knows it well. She is a joy to paddle with. Excellent time! Can't go wrong with Cantrell

We did a half day rafting trip with our boys ages 12 and 14. Cantrell's facility is great, with clean bathrooms and showers, a bar, causal food and camping. The rafting was a blast. Stacy was a great guide. Not only did we enjoy the rafting, but we learned so much about the area. Our start time was delayed by... More

Great rafting trip on the New River. Many thanks to Ritchie and Nancy at Cantrell's for a great weekend. Hospitality was unbelievable. Make sure you ask for Fish as your raft guide. Top notch all around! Already planning next years trip!

Cantrell is amazing, and if you like to support local businesses, I strongly suggest this place. They are plentiful in room for camping, and with a full bar, and live music this place is a great party. I go with a group of around 20 friends every year (specifically bridge day) and they give us great accomodations while also being... More

Well organized rafting company with experienced guides. Even after adding a last minute raft trip to their day,they came through without missing a beat. Cabin on the hillside is worth every penny. Bar is onsite and can walk to any of the cabins.

We have been back here for the 4th year in a row and our group keeps expanding. This place is a really fun place! The cabin is cozy with a hot tub, and about 30 ft away from the bar. This is a great place to bring friends and meet up for a long weekend! You will get some of... More

Several of us have been coming to West VA to raft for years. We found Cantrell's a few years ago and it is exactly the type of personal, down home place we love and thought might not exist anymore. The guides are experienced and fun and like to play as hard as you like. The people who run the outfit... More

The management and staff all make you feel right at home. The cooking is fantastic and reminds me of grandmother's cooking, probably because of the sweet little ladies making it. Great guides for rafting, all very entertaining and way more experienced than other places.

It was a lot of fun. As a first time white water rafter, I felt well taken care of. Great guide too.It was a fun family day.We would definitely do it again. The candid mid experience photography also allowed us to take home memories at an affordable price.
