Paddling Conditions: This morning the river is in the middle of the Normal Range, an awesome level for running any of our trips. Be sure to exercise extra caution at all rapids, especially Compton, the Ledge & Karo rapids. Don't miss hitting the river while the conditions are so great. We are open for trips 7 days a week until November 3rd. Join us out here in the Shenandoah Valley this week for some fun in the outdoors!
Remember to bring plenty of drinking water, snacks, sunscreen, shoes that you can wear in the river, and a change of clothes. Also, remember to always wear your life vest!
Our store is open 7 days a week for those looking for canoes, kayaks & paddlesports gear.
