A WORLD OF ADVENTURE IN ONE PLACE.

For over 35 years, we've guided folks away from their reality into the great outdoors. Escape your every day with a vacation to ACE Adventure Resort for some world-class whitewater rafting, plus 1,500 acres of awesome-ness in the New River Gorge you can explore by zip lining, rock climbing, mountain biking, horses and just plain old hiking. Plenty of fresh air, fun times and bonfires are waiting to soothe that travel itch and satisfy any level of thrill-seeker.
 

Fall Gauley Season 2015

[powr-holiday-countdown label="Countdown to Gauley Season 2015"]

The official countdown has begun!! While we're still living it up in the summer sun, the truth is around here we all live for Fall Gauley Season! We just can't resist those big hits and massive waves to the face from the Summersville Dam releases! If you've never paddled this river, rafting the Fall Gauley is truly an out of this world, cosmic experience.

For six weeks from September 11 through Bridge Day Weekend on October 18, we'll be surfing the big waves of the mighty Gauley River. Plus (as if the river water level wasn't exciting enough), we're kicking off the season with a major Party in the Holler concert featuring The Wood Brothers and the Steel Drivers on our own private Wonderland mountain-top stage and festival grounds! (Tickets are available online or you can purchase by calling us in advance and we will also sell tickets at the gates.) *BYO tent and reserve a camping spot; for cabins, be sure to book lodging before we fill up!

Gauley River Rafting Calendar 2015

Pick your own thrill level by going all-out on the extreme whitewater of the Upper Gauley or work your way up to those Class 5 rapids by first running the Lower GauleyIf you want the full Gauley experience without the rush of just a single day's adventure, we recommend an overnight trip where you can sleep under the stars (or just party by the bonfire) at our private campsite. 

**Those who raft with us opening weekend on September 12th will enjoy a special FREE river-side concert by The Wood Brothers at Sweet's Falls that Saturday... book your rafting trip early, you don't want to miss this show!

Mark your calendars, ask off from work, book a flight, grab some friends... do whatever you gotta do to get down to ACE and raft with us during Fall Gauley Season this year. Until then, binge on some Gauley whitewater action with these videos...

Howl at the Moon

August 07, 2015

When the vacation day is done and you're still craving some adrenaline, we still have the adventures that will take the edge off. Most of our whitewater rafting trips still leave time to enjoy another adventure before you go home. Feeling daring? Scream through the trees on our nighttime canopy zip line tour. You're surrounded in twilight and trees as you zip through the forest over nine routes. We also offer SUP (stand up paddle board) lessons with an evening breeze at ACE beach in the Upper New River Gorge. The calm waves on our private beach create a perfect spot for getting used to river currents. (BYO glow sticks, waterproof camera and LED lights for some awesome photos!) Have a bigger group...
