Whitewater Rafting

Spring rafting season kicks off in April with the powerful undammed Cheat River in Albright, West Virginia.  The season is short but well worth putting on the calendar. The Lower Yough in Ohiopyle State Park, is our most popular class 3 rafting trip. Available every day from April 1 to October 31, and a minimum age of 12, this rafting trip is appropriate for a wide range of folks looking to have fun.

Family rafting options are numerous in our neck of the woods, rafting trips are available for kids as young as 5.  Choose from the Middle Yough in Ohiopyle, the Cheat Narrows in West Virginia, or the North Branch of the Potomac, forming the border between WV, and Maryland.

For Adrenaline junkies, the Upper Yough, in Friendsville, Maryland provides class 5 whitewater all summer long due to water releases from Deep Creek Lake.
