Located by New River Gorge National Park and featuring over 350 acres and 50+ adventures to choose from, Adventures on the Gorge is the best place to explore and connect on your next vacation! Take young children for an age-appropriate trip on the Upper New River, or hit the Gauley River for big, challenging whitewater to satisfy your family’s thrillseekers. Take the whole group on a zipline trip through the trees, or clip into a harness for a guided rock climb with breathtaking views of the New River Gorge. You can hike, swim, kayak, mountain bike, stand-up paddleboard, play laser tag, tackle obstacle courses, learn to fly fish, and more! All of our adventures are led by expert guides who are trained to maximize safety and increase confidence levels for guests of all ages and experience levels.
Yes. Age minimums frequently change based on the specific trip. For example, four-year-olds can participate in TimberTrek Adventure Park. A trip on the Upper New River can be appropriate for ages six and up, but some rafting trips on the Gauley River require all participants to be at least 15. Weight minimums and maximums apply for aerial and climbing adventures. You can find the age and weight requirements on each adventure page, or contact an Adventure Specialist before you book. Adventurers under 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign their waiver.
All of our trips are guided trips, but that can look different based on the activity. For rafting on the Lower New or Gauley River, there is a guide in each boat. For an activity like paintball, your guide acts more as a referee and facilitator. For TimberTrek Adventure Park, there is a guide that will take you through Ground School, and multiple guides around the course are available to assist as needed.
Canyon Falls Pools is a two-tiered swimming pool right on the rim of America’s newest national park. Adventures on the Gorge also offers a 9-hole disc golf course free to play, a sand volleyball court, cornhole boards spread throughout campus, and on-site hiking trails.

We love our four-legged friends here at Adventures on the Gorge, but please have a plan in place if you are going out on adventures. We offer pet-friendly options for each style cabin, so make sure to confirm with your Adventure Specialist that you are in the pet-friendly option and that the pet fee is added to your reservation. We do not have dog-sitting services on site.
We will take anyone on adventures with us whether you’re staying here or not! That said, you will need to reserve adventures in advance.
