“Great place to bring a group of friends. FIREBALL!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Excellent stay and a great place to bring a large group of friends. Cabins are nice with hot tubs. There was some nice homestyle cooking for breakfast, lunch, and supper. And the guides made the rafting trip a time to remember.

Great trip to take with friends and family. The Base camp has everything you need to make a weekend of parties and rafting perfect. This is one of the smaller outfitters in this part of WV and it shows in a great way! The amount of individual attention and genuine concern for our enjoyment was evident as soon as we walked into the bar! Plus, since their overhead is so low in comparison to the "corporate" rafting companies, our costs were more in line with what we were used to paying. Another added bonus is you know the money you are paying is staying within the area, not to some large out of state investors! Give the little guy a try, you will be impressed with their flexibility, value and FAMILY experience!

We went down there with a bachlorette party, and could not have had a better time, Teri is the best reft instructor out there. Nanc in the office made sure everything went smoothly including our bus trip down. Scott the bartender kept us good and hydrated, Then Elvis entertained us with his animals. Everyone down there is so friendly, we wil be back year after year!

This was my first time rafting, and I had a great time!! Aaron was our guide and he was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable regarding the river and its history, and had lots of stories to share. As a first time rafter, I felt very safe with him. He let us know exactly what was coming up and how we were going to maneuver it. We had a blast, these guys know how to have a good time!!

The staff at Cantrell ensured that our group had the best possible time. Proper instruction was provided for those familiar with rafting and for those new to the rafting world. All needed equipment is available for rental at great prices.

Cantrell provides a rafting experience that you and your group of any size will never forget. If you've been on any white water rafting trip, you know that it is NOT a "one size fits all" journey - Cantrell understands that. They are smaller than most of the commercial companies in WV along the Gauley and New River. This is why they are able to customize your experience based on the size and skill level of the group you have, something that the other guys simply can't do. They are a class act form start to finish. I have been on many white water rafting experiences, most of which have been excellent, however Cantrell is in a class of their own. If you want friendly, professional, and experienced guides, you can be assured that this is the place for you.
