The Cantrell family and their staff are fun, courteous, knowledgeable, and dedicated to making sure you have a wonderful time. I wholeheartedly recommend Cantrell to anyone wanting to raft the New or the Gauley.

A great trip with friends to Fayetteville to raft the Upper Gauley. Cantrells was great! The day was smooth, and we even got cold beer after the river!! Our guide was Phish/Fish, and I don't tink we could've gotten a better guide. He was great, and rode us through those Class Vs with ease!

When we arrived that morning we were not disappointed in our choice...

Rafting the New River wirh Cantrell was a great experience. Nancy was an excellent host while Stacy and Adam provided an educational experience along with great fun! Stacy has obviously studied the river and knows it well. She is a joy to paddle with. Excellent time! Can't go wrong with Cantrell

We did a half day rafting trip with our boys ages 12 and 14. Cantrell's facility is great, with clean bathrooms and showers, a bar, causal food and camping. The rafting was a blast. Stacy was a great guide. Not only did we enjoy the rafting, but we learned so much about the area. Our start time was delayed by...
