This was the best rafting trip ever. Our guide was great. We were one of the few rafts that didn't tip...until the end and it was a choice we made - guide hit the last rapid (wasn't even big) and somehow got the boat over...was fun but definitely unexpected for that particular rapid. Lunch on the river was awesome. Had... More

Rafting the Gauley is a "must do" if you love rafting. Each year there are 22 pre-scheduled days of controlled dam release in late Sept. and Oct. No risk of not enough water. River Expeditions provided great and experienced guides, good equipment and safety instructions throughout the trip and is an efficient overall organization. Did both the upper and the... More

Went for a birthday trip fall of 2016 on the Gauley River. We arrived full of excitement and thrilled to be going on a first rafting trip. Due to the fall season, we rented wet suits and jackets, I highly recommend getting both for any weather below 75 degrees. We were 100% satisfied with our trip! The company was great... More

They have the rafting trip, camping resort stay thing down cold. The rafting coordinators are extremely helpful. The rafting guides are pleasant and skilled. The facilities are great with a pool, hot tub, disc golf, paintball and a great bar. I can't wait to go back.

If you're looking for one stop shopping for a whitewater experience, this is the rafting company you want. We've been return guests since 2003. The credentials and attention to safety of the river guides is unsurpassed, and you can handle lodging, food, additional outdoor trips and activities with one call to this family-owned and operated business. BEST part of all... More

We have rafted several times over the years but this was the most amazing day on the river ever. Nothing like the upper Gauley in this area of the country. We stayed in a rustic cabin which is pretty basic but comfortable and the bathroom facilities are good. All of the staff was friendly and helpful from the campground person... More

We rafted the Lower Gauley River after rafting the Lower New River the previous day. We used River Expeditions for both trips, and they were excellent. Carla is a terrific guide who knows how to play the edge of giving us an adventure and keeping us (relatively) safe. Along the way, she told us many fascinating information about the river,... More

This was amazing! As a first time rafter who did the Lower Gauley, they made me feel safe while taking us on an amazing adventure! We stayed one night in a rustic cabin, stopped in the Red Dog Saloon for a beer that night, had breakfast (included) before the trip the next day, got our gear on, took the bus... More

We have rafted the full Gauley three times with River Expeditions. My wife and I celebrated our 40th birthdays by rafting. Like previous visits, we had a great time on the river with well prepared guides and quality equipment. The guides do a great job of gauging your experience level and desire for adventure. On our arrival date we ordered... More
