Since 1978, more than 550,000 guests have rafted with Class VI – Mountain River. We credit this in great part to the professionalism and enthusiasm our staff members consistently bring to their jobs. The proof is in the numbers: guides average 12 years with our company, while our support staff averages five.
Our base camp facility is nestled on the rim of the stunning New River Gorge. The buildings were designed to complement the scenic natural surroundings, including the Adventure Center and Outfitter's Store, Chetty's Pub, and our premier restaurant, Smokey's on the Gorge.® Paddlers will love our luxurious bath house, complete with heated floors, personal lockers, hair dryers and even sturdy plastic bags to hold your wet gear. Our sister company, the Rivermen, is located just across the street in a new, open-air facility and offers additional dining experiences at Buffler's Barbeque, which features live music on weekends.
In addition to rafting, we also have a wide variety of other recreational activities available such as rock climbing, horseback riding, mountain biking, fishing, ATV tours, and paintball. New for 2009 is our mile-long TreeTops Canopy and Zipline Tour through Mill Creek Canyon.
