Double Upper Gauley 1 Day

The Famed Upper Gauley. Twice in One Day! West Virginia Whitewater Rafting, Plus Lodging and Dining

Are you insane? Then have we ever got the whitewater getaway weekend for you.

The Upper Gauley is continuous, big-volume, gut-wrenching whitewater from start to finish. It drops over 335 feet in fewer than 9 miles with over 40 action-packed rapids—5 of them boat-crunching Class Vs. The express version of the Upper Gauley gives you all the frenetic glory of the Upper Gauley and none of the relaxation of the Middle.

In fact, on this getaway, you’ll take out after a hot riverside lunch, then drive back to the Summersville to test your mettle twice in the same day!

You’re going to need some serious energy for a day like this, so we’ll sleep you soundly as you ever slept and feed you as full as you’ve ever been fed. This getaway also includes 2 nights of lodging and, hot all-you-can-eat lunch on the river and an all-you-can-eat breakfast.

Prices are per person and do not include tax and fees. Prices vary by day of the week and number in party.

What is a “Getaway?”
Class VI Getaways are easy-plan mini-vacation packages designed to get you doing the things you want to do at a discounted rate and with minimal fuss. We’ve pre-built these trips for you, so that all you have to do is pick your lodging and your meals.

Tell me more about the lodging options!
Whatever you like! If you’d prefer to camp under the stars, we have that available in two campgrounds—one more suited to families and one with more liberal quiet hours. If you like the idea of camping, but you don’t have the equipment for it, we have everything from platform tents to primitive bunk houses with nothing more than walls, a roof and electricity. We’ve got Mountain Cabins, too, which are a step up. They have private bathrooms, heat, AC and efficiency kitchenettes. Outback cabins are a little more swanky and have more amenities, and Deluxe Cabins—with 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms are even better with amenities such as wi-fi and hot tubs. Still not sufficient? Check out any of our luxury vacation homes, such as Paddle House, which sleeps up to 12 in high style and sits literally on the rim of the New River Gorge.
