Double Upper Gauley
New River Gorge, West Virginia Dining and a Double-Upper Gauley River Run
Does the idea of rafting the world famous Upper Gauley twice in one weekend appeal to you? Are you up for it... but maybe not all in one day? This getaway might be just right for you.
The Upper Gauley is continuous, big-volume, gut-wrenching whitewater from start to finish. It drops over 335 feet in fewer than 9 miles with over 40 action-packed rapids—5 of them boat-crunching Class Vs. Continuing on into the Middle Gauley also gives you several more class IIIs, like Fuzzy Box of Kittens and the class-IV stomp-a-thon, Wood’s Ferry. In this getaway we’ll take you through all of it...
And then we’ll take you back to Adventures On the Gorge for a fantastic dinner and a cozy night’s rest, before we return to do the Upper Gauley Express the very next day.
This getaway includes 1 hot buffet breakfasts and 2 hot riverside lunches.
Prices are per person and do not include tax and fees. Prices vary by day of the week and number in party.

Tell me more about the lodging options!
Whatever you like! If you’d prefer to camp under the stars, we have that available in two campgrounds—one more suited to families and one with more liberal quiet hours. If you like the idea of camping, but you don’t have the equipment for it, we have everything from platform tents to primitive bunk houses with nothing more than walls, a roof and electricity. We’ve got Mountain Cabins, too, which are a step up. They have private bathrooms, heat, AC and efficiency kitchenettes. Outback cabins are a little more swanky and have more amenities, and Deluxe Cabins—with 2, 3 or 4 bedrooms are even better with amenities such as wi-fi and hot tubs. Still not sufficient? Check out any of our luxury vacation homes, such as Paddle House, which sleeps up to 12 in high style and sits literally on the rim of the New River Gorge.
