The Upper/Upper Gauley Overnight. Our popular Gauley Overnight trips run the Upper Gauley in our 14' self-bailing Adventurer raft on Day 1 and the Lower Gauley on Day 2, but not this trip. On Day 1 we run the Upper Gauley and then camp at Class VI's exclusive overnight site. On Day 2 we return to the Upper Gauley and do it again.

Big drops (Class I to V+), complex rapids, and excellent scenery characterize the Upper Gauley River. Some of the major rapids encountered include Insignificant, Pillow Rock, Iron Ring, Lost Paddle, and Devil's Backbone (also known as Sweet's Falls). Because of the challenging nature of the Upper Gauley, we do not recommend this for folks who are intimidated by prior rafting trips or cannot swim.

Beginning the first weekend after Labor Day weekend (September 6) and ending six weeks later, the US Army Corps of Engineers releases water from Summersville Lake into the Gauley's riverbed for the Fall Gauley Draw Down.

What to Expect:

Arrive at Class VI to a complimentary reception of Starbuck's coffee and juice in Chetty's Pub. Chetty's offers an assortment of a' la carte breakfast items.

Check-in with your Trip Leader and fill out release forms (minors unattended by legal guardians must bring a signed Class VI release form day of trip).

Change into your river wear, pack your gear into our U-haul, grab a life jacket and helmet, then load up and head for the river.

All gear and food for the trip are transported by U-haul to your campsite.

Approximate 45 minute bus ride to put-in.

On route or at put-in, your trip leader and guide deliver a safety talk covering the fundamentals of rafting and proper use of river equipment.

Enjoy our deli-style lunch part way down the river on both days.

Late afternoon, pull over and set up camp alongside the river, and enjoy hors d'oeuvres while your overnight cooks prepare dinner.

The next morning after breakfast, you'll break camp, load the gear and head back to the dam.

At the take-out point, enjoy a complimentary beverage and head back to Class VI.

Back at Class VI enjoy a hot shower (don't forget your towel), shop at our Canyon Rim Store, take a stroll to our scenic overlook and enjoy a buffet dinner at Smokey's On The Gorge - all located at Class VI's canyon rim facility.
