A great way to spend two days on the river - we've combined our popular one day summer Gauley trip with an on-river camping feature to give you two days on the Gauley River. Whether in one-person duckies or self-bailing rafts, the pristine beauty and exciting challenge of the Gauley in the summer is worth hanging around the campfire to trade stories and make new friends. Available Sunday/Monday and Wednesday/Thursday from Memorial Day to Labor Day weekend, and some days during Fall Gauley Season. This trip demands flexibility because boat size is determined the morning of the trip.

At certain levels, the water released from the Summersville Dam affords the opportunity for a day of good, challenging fun in duckies (inflatable kayaks) on the Middle section of the Gauley River (about seven miles). Ducky trips provide a one-on-one experience withthe river.

Medium to higher water levels may find us in our 14' guided rafts on either the Upper or Lower sections of the Gauley River (nine to 16 miles, depending on the section). This size of raft accommodates up to seven guests plus the guide. Either section of the Gauley River is great fun as rapids are encountered from Class I through Class V+. Depending on which section of the river is run, some of the following rapids may be encountered: Insignificant, Lost Paddle, Iron Ring, Wood's Ferry, Backender, Koontz=s Flume, or Pure Screaming Hell.

What to Expect:

Upon arrival at Class VI, a staff member greets you at our check-in location. During the check-in process, each participant is required to sign our release form prior to your trip. Minors unattended by legal guardians must bring a signed Class VI release form. After signing the release form, changing into river wear, and packing your personal gear into our dry bags, you will have time to enjoy a complimentary reception of Starbuck's coffee and juice in Chetty's Pub. (Chetty's also offers an assortment of a' la carte breakfast items.) We load up and head for the river after getting a life jacket and helmet. In general, transportation to and from the river involves a 45-minute to one-hour ride.

At the put-in on the river, your trip leader and guide deliver a safety talk covering the fundamentals of rafting and proper use of river equipment. Instructions and demonstrations on how to paddle a ducky are provided as part of your trip. Part way down the river, we pull off for a wholesome, riverside deli-style lunch.

Late in the afternoon we pull over to set up camp alongside the river. As the guides prepare a feast of food, try your luck fishing, read a book, marvel at the scenery, skip stones across the water, or take one last swim before the sun goes down. After dinner, enjoy trading stories around the campfire with old and new friends, or simply listen to the sounds of the river. Following a hearty breakfast, we break camp, load the gear, and head down river. Once again, we'll stop for a riverside, deli-style lunch.
