We had a wonderful day on the Cheat River with our experienced and friendly guides. Kids and adults all enjoyed the chance to swim in the pools and jump off the rocks. Beautiful scenery. Couldn't have been better.

We have been going to Blackwater Outdoor Adventures for a few years now and will continue to go as long as we can. The owners are real nice and very helpful. BOA is not too far from the DC area (about 3.5 hrs). The drive is very scenic and not congested during the week, so the time goes by quick. The BOA facility has room for parking and picnics, and they have a fairly new bath house. The building for checking in has a fun little store with t-shirts, hats, sandals and other accessories for water activities. The last time we went we had 6 in our party and took out canoes and a kayak. The water was slowly flowing so we had a nice leisurely pace down the river.

We have been going to Blackwater Outdoor's for the past 5 years. They work hard to provide you the best experience possible. Sometimes the water level is favorable, and sometimes you have to portage your canoe, but they will advise you on the best trip given the conditions. We plan to come back many more times over the years.
