Located in southern West Virginia, Adventures on the Gorge is an all-inclusive, adventure resort. Families can customize their trip, choosing between an action-packed or more relaxed itinerary, and enjoy activities such as whitewater rafting, kayaking, paddle boarding, fly fishing, ziplining, rappelling, rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking and trail rides on horseback. Phew! “Learn to” programs are offered for many activities.
Teens and tweens will especially love the resort’s escape game, laser tag and paintball, while younger children might enjoy the kids’ camp. Other highlights include the Canyon Falls Swimming Pool and a walk across the 24-inch catwalk nearly a mile above the New River on the New River Gorge Bridge.
Accommodations range from rustic to luxurious, and the resort offers several restaurants, where meals are covered in all-inclusive rates. Transportation is also included in the cost of your stay.
Adventures on the Gorge has been named one of the 11 Most Unique All-Inclusive Family Vacations.

Upper Gauley trip is not for the faint of heart but if you are looking for an adrenaline rush and a great trip with family or friends, I would highly recommend it. Need some rafting experience although nothing prepares you for a Class V rapid unless you've been through one. Good raft and equipment and great guide.

I've been rafting on the new and gauley ivers many times and think that AOTG has the best amenities and the best location for a visit to Fayetteville. the resort is right on the rim of the New River gorge and the bars and restaurants available on site make it So pleasant to stay over.
