Excellent Adventure on the Lower Gauley

As we departed camp for the Gauley river put-in, we listened carefully to the safety briefing. Wow - that was an eye-opener. This river can be pretty dangerous. What have we... read more

I have been twice to Adventures on the gorge. The first time just rafting. The second time we did several activities and stayed at the resort. We did the gravity falls zip lining, kayaking, and the timber trek ropes course. The restaurants were pretty good. Smokies was ok but way over priced. I would have like vending machines near the...

Hi Annemarie, thanks for the review. If you're game, I'd love to get more detailed feedback about the food and customer service. Those are two areas we generally pride ourselves on, so if we can improve the experience for others, I'd like to try. If you have a little time, please drop me an email, jay (at) onthegorge (dot) com. More

As we departed camp for the Gauley river put-in, we listened carefully to the safety briefing. Wow - that was an eye-opener. This river can be pretty dangerous. What have we signed up for? But once we got into the raft with Fidge (our very experienced guide), all our fears drained away. He knows the ins & outs of getting... More

My family and I recently spent 4 days at AOTG. This included two days rafting on the Gauley River and 4 nights lodging. The river was great fun and physically challenging. Our guide, Scott Ferris, was excellent. We had two different types of lodging. My wife and I stayed, with our daughter and our two granddaughters stayed in a suite... More

We went with a group of friends. Our first time going. We'll be back! It was great! Staff was very strong on safety. This trip was 10x better than a day at a theme park. Guides know the water and know the conditions. Listen to them and you will have a blast! Our river guide was Amanda. Very good, very... More

Wow! My husband and I spent a weekend at Adventures on the Gorge. One day rafting and another day zip lining. I was a "newbie" The resort was beautiful, very organized programs, the guides were very safety conscious, extremely informative of the landscape and surrounding areas. It could not have been better. I am ready to go again!!!!

First, we were there just to ride Upper Gaully. Like all whitewater rafting come prepared. No cotton, no sandals. They have rentals for wet suits and it's pretty cheap. The place is right off route 19 and easy to get around when you get there. We had no problem finding it or getting checked in once we got there. Everyone... More

Such an amazing time with all raft guides on the upper and lower gauley rivers. I would highly recommend Doug or Kevin as river guides! They are super experienced and care about your safety and well being. I rate this a 5-star!!!

We booked a last minute package to "float" the New River and camp. Guides were skilled, knowledgable, and not shy about correcting my errors. The river was AWESOME and we were not disappointed after we chose not to do the Gauley. Check-in was seamless, delicious shrimp, live music, abundant and clean rest rooms, and having the campground to ourselves and... More

I am writing this in October 2016, but the actual visit was in July 2014 (not a possible alternative among the dates above)! The reason I am writing now though is because I just found our guide's business card AND because we keep talking about this adventure as something extraordinary and somthing we'd never want to miss if we're ever...
