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 Gauley River during the fall #GauleySeason 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 high river water level wasn't exciting enough), we kicked 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! Everyone had a blast and thanks to those who helped and came to party in the holler with us!
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 Gauley. If 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.
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...
