“Wow! Wow! Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

First class all the way. Very friendly and accommodating staff. So much to do. Rafting the Gauley is incredible. Our guide, Kent, was awesome!! Great place to reunite with old friends and have fun. I thought I had been whitewater rafting before, but the Gauley is a whole new experience.
The campsites are very nice and the common areas for shower and changing are well maintained.

We had only booked the zip line tour but by the end of the trip was wishing we had booked more activities and had came across Ace Adventures earlier in the summer. I had so much fun, at first I was a little skeptical with my burnt grilled cheese at the bar and grille over by the "camp crystal lake" lake but once we met up with our group and our guides it was on and it was fun and a casual delight.

Our guides were a merry bunch of misfits and kept us alive and entertained the entire trip. Gearing up and getting on a short "cheese bus" to take you up the mountain was hilarious! And the cold refreshments waiting at the end was much appreciated and a nice touch and went with the no fuss fun times of the day.

I can't wait to come back for zip lines and more activities. I highly recommend this place for a fun time, IF you can find it..lol.

What a great trip we had. We purchased our package from living Social that included two nights stay at a camp site, breakfast, lunch, and dinner on the day of our rafting trip and wetsuits for the day. We had an outstanding guide and the weather was great. I'm not a big rafter but this river is definitely top notch and so is the staff. Things that really made the trip for us were......

-Very nice riverside lunch at one of the biggest rapids.
-The 6 person raft made it easier to engage with our guide and hear all the info he was conveying to us.
-Dinner was great and the beer selection was good too.
-Logistically they were good. No wasted time in getting your equipment, signing waivers, transpo to and from the river, very professional.

If you dont want to raft ACE has lots of other activities to engage in and a huge lake with a water slide and other things for the kids.

We got the deal from Living Social which made it more affordable. Zip lining at night is not as exciting as during the day, but if you are first timer, the darkness makes it easier for you- less scary. It's not between trees, rather cliff to cliff.
Upper Gauley was a blast, lunch by river consisted of hamburgers and hot cocoa or coffee (no tea ;( ) Pretty good. Horse riding was interesting, the trail is going uphill and downhill, there is a lot of mud, so be prepared for dirty jeans/shoes.

Thank you for your honest review of our resort and activities. We appreciate the extra effort, as it helps us get a good understanding of our strengths and weaknesses. As a tea lover myself, I will also mention this to our Lunch crew as a great third option for those Gauley days when we offer hot drinks!

Thanks again,

Having rafted for over 40 years, from Colorado to Washington State, from the Canadian Rockies to Quebec, from the Smokies to Slovenia, the Upper Gauley was tops by far! More continuous white-water and more legitimate Class V rapds than any of the others. The guides really know the river and focus on your safety at all times. As a 66 year-old grand-father, I can now cross the Upper Gauley off my bucket list. Hoo-ha!

Hi William,

My name is Heidi and I read all of ACE's Trip Advisor reviews. I just wanted to say- a big THANK YOU!

Thanks for the best email to read mid-day on a Monday ever. I rafted all over the world too, and yet the Gauley is still one of my absolute favorites. I pretty much moved to WV because of it!

Thanks for such a great review and we love hearing about folks who travel, love rivers and don't let a number in age stop them from living life to the fullest.

Hoo-ha indeed and thanks so much for choosing ACE Adventure Resort!

From the very first minute at check-in, the ACE experience was second to none. Everyone was super friendly, extremely helpful, every question was answered, everything was organized. I did both the Upper and Lower Gauley rafting with a bit of zipline too. All the guides were happy. knowledgeable, communicative, and extremely competent. The Gauley tests the wits and skills of everyone on it, and I was completely impressed with the abilities and expertise of our guides. Everything went off without a hitch during the 3 days I was there. Even when the weather didn't co-operate and postponed the Upper trip for a couple of days, the ACE people went with the flow and made it work. And the food was outstanding. Whole roasted pig, a hind of beef, oysters on the shells, lox with capers..... I didn't really expect all that and was blown away. I've done several organized trips, here and abroad, and seriously, this group is world class. They do a superb job.
