We camped. It was perfect. Shower rooms are spotless. Dinner was very good. Service was very good.

I have been using River Expeditions for an annual kayaking trip for years now. It's a great deal for a two-night, all-day rafting or kayaking trip. The best part of the trip are the awesome guides. They know what they are doing and you know that you will be safe.

What You'll Get


White-water rafting combines tranquil views of breathtaking scenery punctuated by moments of sheer terror, similar to watching a nature show while being shot at by hunters. Surrender to adventure with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a one-day, two-night rafting and camping excursion on the Lower New River (up to a $155 value) and a souvenir photo CD (a $45 value) from River Expeditions (up to a $200 total value) in Oak Hill, West Virginia, which is about a 6.5-hour drive from Erie. This deal is valid for participants age six and older on appropriate river section.

Since 1972, River Expeditions has tamed West Virginia’s wild waters, blazing aquatrails along the New and Gauley Rivers. Battle the watery forces of Mother Nature on the Lower New River rafting trip, which explores a stretch of tumultuous National Park Service–protected rapids. An expert river guide trained in CPR and first aid leads each group, using a seventh sense of the river's history to point out eye-pleasers such as naturally carved canyons and one of the highest vehicular bridges in America. The river ranges from Class II to Class V levels of difficulty, with patches of challenging rapids slowing into calm pools, during which time paddlers can relax or write love letters for delivery by carrier pigeon. After a full day of paddling, sprawl out in the shower-equipped campsite, lay under the starry night, and wow companions with knowledge of river-rafting-themed constellations, such as Thor's Paddle and Could Be a Rock.

The trip leaves from River Expeditions' headquarters, about 4 miles southwest of the famous New River Gorge Bridge. All meals and beverages are provided; rafters can bring a tent, sleeping bag, and pillow or rent them for an additional fee for their stay at the base camp. After the trip, participants will receive a photo CD compiling notable moments from the trip, allowing endless revisiting of mid-river paddle jousts. This Groupon must be redeemed by August 31.
