Fall Triple Play Package

Three days of rafting on some of the best whitewater in this country is a pretty amazing vacation if you ask us. Throw in the fact that we've combined these 3 trips into a package with HUGE savings and well it just became even more amazing…if that's possible. The Triple Play Package unites the Grand Canyon of the East (otherwise known as the New River) with one of the world's most popular rafting attractions, the Gauley River. 3 Days on the river is just what the doctor ordered! Stress will melt away, worries will wash down the river and you'll go home with a fresh mind and some pretty big bragging rights.

E-Z Plan Packages - 3 or More Days

We realize that a vacation is more than just a trip. It's a break away from the ordinary. It's time spent with those you love or those you want to get to know. It's a time that you’ve been planning, saving and looking forward to. So why shouldn't it be easy? We believe it should.

Our E-Z Plan Packages allow you to customize your vacation around, well, you. It's your vacation. Simply choose which option works for you each day.

After deciding on how many and what adventures you want, simply choose the lodging option that works for you.

Trail Maintenance Weekend

Dates: April 21-22, 2012

trail-maintananceWhat would you do for a FREE two-night stay in a Wildwater Cozy Cabin? OK, free might be a stretch. We need your help and are offering a handsome reward.

Simply donate some of your precious time and maybe break a sweat to help the Wildwater crew maintain its biking and hiking trails, and we supply a cabin complete with satellite TV, full kitchen and private hot tub. Mother Nature is not always kind to the West Virginia hills so we like to rally the troops to clean things up before the season starts.

As a weekend crew member, work starts on Saturday 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. Sunday, the crew works from 9 a.m. - noon. At the end of each day, we'll take a mountain bike ride to give you a preview cruise of your efforts.

This is a great way to kick-start the season. Call 800-982-7238 to make your reservation.

A $25 deposit is required to hold your cabin for the weekend. It is refundable upon completion of your trail work. If you find you are unable to attend, this deposit is refundable by contacting us at least two weeks prior to your arrival date. Per the security agreement deluxe cabins require a credit card on file.

Wilderness Challenge

On Columbus Day weekend (October 5 and 6), teams comprised of people from all branches of the U.S. military will test their mettle on the proving grounds of southern West Virginia. Two days, 50-miles, of mud-slinging, trail hiking, mountain bike-riding, raft-paddling competition determine which team has the will to finish srong and atop of the field. An 8K run and rafting on the Gauley River highlight the first day of competition. Mountain biking, inflatable kayaking and mountain hike rounds out the second and final day. Hang out and watch or represent your branch in this year's Wilderness Challenge. Lodging and adventure specials available for participants.
