Overnight White Water Rafting Trips For The Family

Our 2-Day Overnight Upper New River white water rafting trips are just the right mix of fun and chillin'. There are some waves here and there, plenty of daydream-filled floating, and one great rapid known as "Surprise." We'd tell you more about it, but then, well, it wouldn't be a surprise.  Best of all, you camp out along the banks of the New River and let the sound of the water sing you to sleep.
Your first day of West Virginia rafting ends with a satisfying meal hot off the grill. In the morning, enjoy a delicious hot breakfast before heading out for more New River rafting with your gang. If there is a better way to spend quality family time, we haven't found it.

The Upper New White Water Rafting Overnight includes:
  • Kid-tested lunch and dinner on Day 1
  • Mother-approved breakfast and lunch on Day 2
  • Rafts and inflatable kayaks
  • All-you-can-swim buffet between rapids
  • About 5-6 hours on the river each day
  • Riverside camping at ACE's private site
  • Stories around the campfire
  • Possible hikes to the nearby ghost town of Thurmond.
  • One Day Adventure Play Park Pass
This West Virginia rafting trip is perfect for the kid or the big kid-at-heart. You can have splash fights, play "King of the Mountain" on a floating barge of duckies, and soak up the splendor of the great outdoors.
