While searching for a whitewater rafting excursion for myself and my new fiancee (who had never been rafting), I was looking for a campground/rafting company in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia. While looking online, what caught my attention about Cantrell's website was that it looked and felt like a welcoming, local business. Indeed, it was. Cantrell's has everything you need,... More

We had a great experience staying at Cantrell's House. It's a small facility with a few cabins, water/electric sites and tent sites. The bathrooms/showers were clean and in good working order. We stayed in a water/electric site and we fit just fine in our 39ft motorhome. Jesse, a member of the Cantrell family was so kind to us. This is... More

The Cantrell family and their staff are fun, courteous, knowledgeable, and dedicated to making sure you have a wonderful time. I wholeheartedly recommend Cantrell to anyone wanting to raft the New or the Gauley.

Our group of friends camped over Bridge Day weekend. The campground is on a first come, first served basis but there were plenty of spots and we were never crowded. The bath houses were amazing! They were heated and always clean, with several shower stalls to accommodate campers. They had bands at their bar/restaurant both nights we were there. I... More

A great trip with friends to Fayetteville to raft the Upper Gauley. Cantrells was great! The day was smooth, and we even got cold beer after the river!! Our guide was Phish/Fish, and I don't tink we could've gotten a better guide. He was great, and rode us through those Class Vs with ease!

The Cantrell Family and their guides were as friendly and courteous people that you would ever want to meet. When I first talked to Nancy on the telephone, she came across as a helpful friend and this, with the Trip Advisor reviews, sold me on the rafting company. When we arrived that morning we were not disappointed in our choice... More
