Family Reunions At ACE Adventure Resort



Skip the park and picnic shelter for your family reunion this year, and host a family reunion that will make you actually enjoy those obscure family members! At ACE, your family will enjoy time together taking on epic adventures, enjoying incredible scenery, and playing hard at our 1,500 acre playground in the heart of the New River Gorge. ACE has dining and lodging on site, so your family can stay and play without having to worry about cooking. With dozens of activities for people of all ages, and a waterpark with a relaxing beach, there is something (or nothing) for everybody in your family.

Group Lodging

Stay awhile for your family reunion in our onsite lodging. With an array of cabins to choose from, individual families can book their own, and you can even request to have cabins close to each other so you can visit your neighbors to spend extra quality time with them. Or, book a larger cabin and stay together! Many of our cabins have their own kitchens, so you can plan to cook your meals in the comfort of your own vacation home, if you choose. For those you want to “rough it” ACE’s Mountaintop Campground is the place to be. Bring your own tent, or rent one from ACE and we’ll even set it up for you! Cabin tents and bunkhouses are also available, if you want something in between camping and a cabin!

Whitewater Rafting

Raft with your family at ACE! At ACE, we have river trips for all ages and skill levels. For kiddos as young as six, try the Upper New River. This full day trip is a great beginner friendly option. You’ll have the opportunity to paddle in a raft, or in a single or double inflatable kayak (known as a duckie). Or, for families with kids 11 and up, check out the Lower New River! This fun and exciting section of whitewater has two class IV+ rapids. You’ll also experience the breathtaking scenery of the New River Gorge, including the New River Gorge Bridge. Planning your family reunion in the fall? Be sure to check out the Gauley River! The Lower section is great for beginners, with the Upper section known for its nonstop whitewater.

Group Adventures

With so many adventures, you’ll need a whole week to do them all! Zipline on the only zipline course with views of the New River Gorge, only at ACE! Climb to new heights on a rock climbing trip, or rappel down the rock on an evening rappel. Challenge your family to a paintball battle, or journey through our mud obstacle course and see which team can conquer it the fastest! Rent a mountain bike from us or opt for or a guided mountain bike tour, and journey on wheels through the forests at ACE. And really, there is SO MUCH MORE! No matter what adventures you choose, there is something for everybody at ACE.


Our 5-acre spring fed lake has been transformed into the waterpark of your dreams! Wonderland Waterpark has something for every member of your family. Little ones will enjoy the playground and Splash Pad, while older kids (and kids at heart) will have a blast playing on the inflatable toys in the lake! Huge mountains, spinning planets, trampolines, and more are floating on the lake, ready for your family to play! Zipline into the water, or travel by water slide. Make sure you blob your cousins as high as you can too! Our white sandy beach is the perfect place to relax if you don’t want to get wet, or if you’re taking a break in between playing hard.

Dining Options

Let us do the cooking for you, you’re on vacation, after all. ACE has breakfast, lunch, and dinner available everyday! Prebook your dining for the maximum convenience, or purchase them when you arrive for the meal. Either way, we have something for even the pickiest eaters. Our breakfast buffet includes all the breakfast staples, like an assortment of cereals, bagels, bacon, eggs, sausage, and an omelette bar. For lunch, check out Woody’s by the lake. Woodfired pizza is the specialty here, but salads, burgers, wings, and nachos and more are also available. At dinner, check out the Lost Paddle Bar and Grill. American cuisine, craft beers, and handcrafted cocktails can be found here. Or, the Lakeside Eatery, where you’ll experience the finest dining ACE has to offer.

Free Activities

With miles of property to explore, there is so much to do at ACE for free! Pick up a map from the Welcome Center and head out to the trails on foot, or bring your own bike (or rent one from us), and see ACE on wheels! Bring your own fishing gear and check out one of the resort fishing ponds, no fishing license required. You’ll find catfish, largemouth bass, bluegill, and carp in these ponds. Is birding more your thing? As a nesting spot for many migratory birds, the New River Gorge Region is a birdwatcher’s paradise.
