Gauley Whitewater Rafting and Camping



ACE Adventure Resort Sat, Oct 20, 2018 - Mon, Oct 22, 2018



Join us for a weekend of world class white water rafting on the Gauley River, plus 2 nights of cabin camping at ACE Adventure Resort! Only open for 6 weeks per year, the Gauley River offers one of the world's top ten whitwater rafting experiences. On this weekend, the final of the season, we also have the good fortune to attend the Bridge Day Festival, a celebration centering around base jumping from the New River Gorge Bridge. A pig roast dinner (vegetarian options as well) by the riverfront is included in the festivities, along with live music and all kinds of fun activities.

Some of us will be driving up early Saturday morning to make it to West Virginia for the Bridge Day festival and staying in wooden cabins at night. If you aren't an early riser, feel free to leave in the second carpool group later on and we'll meet before dinner! After a complimentary buffet breakfast on Sunday morning, we'll have a full day of epic whitewater rafting, conquering class III and IV rapids on our way downstream. After a leisurely breakfast Monday morning, we'll hit the road back to Nashville!

Rafting, cabin lodging, a chance to watch an iconic base jumping festival, a pig roast dinner, a buffet breakfast, campfire stories, and more! What are you waiting for? Help us close out the Gauley's 2018 season, Team Lightning style.

When: Saturday, October 20th (3:30am Carpool)- Monday, October 22
Want to head down on Friday and meet us at the outpost on Saturday? That's OK, too! You'll have to reserve your own lodging for Friday, though.
