“Great Fun”

Cheat River Outfitters
Reviewed 21 May 2017

I just got home from a weekend outing with my boy scout troop. This was my fourth rafting trip with Cheat River Outfitters. Three times down the Narrows and this weekend the Canyon trip. The Canyon trip is the better trip of two offered. The guides are all good at what they do. If you have a bad trip with this company it's has to be a problem that they can't control.

Until last minute we were not sure that the trip would be a go, but finally a whole bunch of people signed up. They moved things along nicely - if you have questions or issues, make sure they are addressed before its too late. The guides were very pleasant, trip was fun. The original plan was that my 9 year old daughter would have her own ducky, but during the test run it became obvious that she won't be able to handle it herself. Quickly we inflated a double-ducky and she came along with me.

The entrance to CRO was a little un-nerving....a steep slope made of loose stone with deep ruts! The place was.....let's say rustic. What do you expect in WV right! That's why we go there! The owner & staff are really great. Very nice and helpful people. Our group consisted of 19 people. We piled on an old school bus to the launch site about 5miles away. Most of us were using Duckys.....small individual rafts. A few were taking the large raft with guides in it. The river level was probably average ....not too high nor too low. It was intimidating & very physical to navigate the river but it was also very fun. We stopped for a swim & then for a couple of snacks. Everyone enjoyed it. We would do it again but be prepared....it is a physical adventure.....you have to walk on rocks to get to the river & in the river and it takes a lot of strength to give in & out of your raft & to paddle.

Our group of 8 had a great time on the Cheat Narrows. Due to wet summer and water levels we were fortunate to be able to all raft together. Our guide Ken was very knowledgably and had a humorous personality. We had a few newbies in our group whom were nervous and Ken eased them into having great time. The class 2-3 rapids were the right size for our groups experience and age category. The only reason I didn't score a 5 was the lunch was horrific. Semi-frozen lunch meat and literally ice crystals in the miracle whip. Besides they forgot the meat and we were forced to eat at the take out area. Despite the lunch I would return to this outfitter for a trip down the Cheat.

We took a family trip down the Cheat with my 10 and 12 year old daughters. They were excited but a little nervous, especially after hearing the obligatory waiver talk ("this is a potentially dangerous...") The guides were so engaging and knowledgeable that they were completely at ease by the first rapids. We stopped to jump off rocks, and our girls were hooked! The water was low, making the class II and III rapids just tame enough to give my daughters a thrill without worrying about them dumping. J.C. was great, we felt that we were in quite capable hands. We're looking forward to doing it again the next time we're in W.V.
