Embark on a Fall Kayak Adventure at ACE

SHARE

ACE is widely known as America’s best adventure resort because of our world-class whitewater rafting, exhilarating zip line tours, and challenging rock climbing, but we also offer ten unique kayaking adventures on nearby lakes and rivers. Whether you’re planning to learn a new sport, leisurely paddle on scenic Summersville Lake, or speed through exciting rapids, ACE Adventure Resort will help guarantee that your visit to Southern West Virginia is the highlight of autumn. Our kayak adventures can be rewarding, exhilarating, peaceful, awe-inspiring, and informational, depending on which unique journey you choose. Let the professional and experienced staff at ACE help pick an adventure that perfectly suits your skill level.

Summersville Lake Tours

ACE Adventure Resort has five different tours that run exclusively on Summersville Lake, one of the most beautiful fall lakes in North America. Summersville Lake has towering bluffs topped with colorful forestry, crystal-clear azure water, and sweeping Appalachian valley views. Choose between a half or full-day excursion upon arrival. Some adventures are geared toward beginners and young children, while others explore many of the narrow inlets and secluded niches along the bluffs. Many extreme sports enthusiasts wisely select the Summersville Lake Pontoon Adventure, which includes kayaking, SUPing, and rock climbing (no prior experience is needed!).

Kayak Clinics

Some outdoor enthusiasts would rather blast through a nearby river gorge’s 20+ rapids in a single kayak than embark on a world-class whitewater rafting trip. Extreme sports nuts can challenge themselves by booking a private, group, or half-day kayak clinic. Our professional and experienced instructors hand-choose the best stretches of river in the Appalachian Mountains for each clinic. Groups love kayak clinics because everyone can independently conquer big drops on tight and steep rivers. The instructors will help beginners learn new skills such as kayak control, river reading, and basic safety.

America’s Best Adventure Resort

After your kayaking expedition is sadly complete, stop by The Lost Paddle for “The ACE” pizza (house-smoked brisket, roasted bell pepper, red onion, and fresh cilantro) and a pint of refreshing Bridge Brew Works craft beer. Polish off a picture-perfect day with a bottle of champagne in an outdoor hot tub overlooking the lush, colorful Appalachian wilderness.
