Thanks for a great season!

We appreciate all of you who chose to break your Corona-virus isolation with a trip to Cheat River Outfitters!

Update: September 26, 2020

Although this was not the season any of us would have chosen we are thankful that we were able to show off the Cheat River to at least some adventure seekers.  We feel very grateful for all we have here in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia: Beautiful and fun rivers, forests and mountains, and lots of wilderness spaces with fresh clean air.  We hope those of you who made it on the river this year remember it fondly.  And we hope everyone will join us in looking forward to the 2021 whitewater rafting season with anticipation of good waves to come.

As of right now the river is too low to run.  We are still open to running trips if the water returns.  It has been a dry summer and so far, a very dry fall.  If you are interested in a fall trip, call about 10 days before your desired date and we can let you know how things are looking.

Paintball is still happening.  Call or send a message below to reserve the field for your group of 8 or more.
