We love everything about this place! The food is great, the campsites and facilities are meticulously cleaned and well maintained and the river guides are the best! This is a total family friendly adv...enture camp that does not skimp on the outdoor adventure. The guides are so knowledgeable, professional and truly have a love for their job. Been going here for years and look forward to our next trip. See More

Have rafted now on two separate occasions with WWC and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Accommodated our large group and were nothing but friendly and professional. Debbie, Paul, Rachel and the other river ...guides were super friendly and helpful. My only suggestion would be offering maps of the river section you'd be rafting that day, indicating and describing certain routes and obstacles to either avoid or try to take on. Just to give a little more of a heads up. I want a second chance at second chance and swan of death! See More

My friends and I had such an amazing time. It wasn't easy but it was definitely worth all the extra muscle work. Special thanks to the staff Cara , Jordan,Kendall , and Paul. They did an amazing job g...uiding us through the Rapids and keeping the group together. I'm talking about they really had your back. We were all getting stuck and they were there guiding us out. Also the photographers did a great job catching my good side. Awesome experience can't wait to go back #teamliteblue See More

Was the first time and absolutely loved it,,,chose the premier group which is smaller and about 30$ more per person but WELL worth it,,and for first time out I absolutely recommend the smaller group,...,,guide can spend more time with everyone in the group and you feel very safe and comfortable on the you don't worry about lunch it is provided for you by the guides and is fresh and delicious....our guides Dave and Tanya were extremely knowledgeable but also easy going and very personable...

We were the second trip in the Duckies. They are trying this as a new attraction. If you know anything about kayaking, and hate how loud and obnoxious raft trips are, you MUST try out the duckies! it'...s a blast, and at the same time you are with people who appreciate the river and occasional silence. We went during dam release, and half of the rapids were class III. And had a total of only 10 people with us. It's a bit more expensive than the rafts, but well worth it. Highly recommended! See More

Our experience wasn't great. Our rafting time was 11:40, we reached 30 mins prior to complete the check in procedures but we weren't let into to bus until 1:00 (understand it was a busy weekend).. we were let in the water, we were made to wait every 20 mins for more than 30 mins at multiple occasions, they had bigger batches more than they could handle (25-30 rafts) , so we had to wait to re - group every time. This was apart from the wait for the directions from thr guide. This could have been avoided if they had smaller batches like the other vendors. It became very hectic and not fun anymore after waiting multiple times for long hours . A lot of grp also got into an argumemt with the guides due to the wait timing. On the other hand , the other rafting vendors were in small batches of 10-15 rafts, so they didn't have to wait as long. I would prefer "poconos white water rafting" over them anytime - they were in small batches and passed us without even waiting for a minute. See More

I can't believe how overbooked this trip was. We stopped multiple times for way too long for others to catch up. So many people! And the lunch stop is also too long. The check in process is also since you have to go to 5 different stations then wait on a hot bus for over 20 mins. I understand this was a busy weekend but not this many people should have been booked. The river is also shared with other companies so it adds to even more raft traffic. The river itself also wasn't challenging enough in my opinion; great for families with younger children but our group was bored almost the entire time. You can't hear the guides on the river, especially over the sound of the rapids. A huge bummer to spend almost $150 for 2 people and drive round trip for 4.5 hours. See More

I came to visit my family from Florida, didn't know some of them were going camping and rafting on this past weekend. I always wanted to go water rafting when I was living in N.Y., but never made i...t. At first I was scared, but as soon as I got inside the raft, the fun and adventure began. I love it, it was amazing and fun. I will do it again at least once a month if I can and find a place in Florida. The staff was nice, friendly, and knowledgeable. Thank you, Treak, Tim, Paul and all. Thank you the bus drivers, and Henry, the security guard at the camping site. See More

Kara/Tanya and their crew were amazingly skilled and funny, the Rapids were perfect for a first timer like me who wanted the big thrill but also wanted to know that I could handle it, and friends were... made so easily, pair that with the beautiful scenery...definitely will be back next year for level 4 � See More

Took my family there today the day after the dam releases. Must say, Mother Nature added much needed water too. We had a blast! Didn't swim much because of the muddy water from the over night storms b...ut definitely enjoyed ourselves. Don't miss the Gift Shop either. All the merchandise was priced perfectly. Ethan was our guide who joined us in the boat taught us all numerous river tactics to help educate ourselves yet enjoy the trip!

Thanks for an awesome family memory!

This was the first ever rafting experience for me and my wife and we thoroughly enjoyed it! There were a few bumps here and there but Ricky, our rafting guide was amazing and his words of encouragemen...t got us through to the shore. We learnt a lot and could not have imagined a better place for it! See More

"Awsome place to spend time with family & friends". We had a great time last weekend camping and doing the whitewater rafting challengers. It was raining to begin with the weekend Friday but sunny du...ring our Saturday rafting when the dam start to released water. The place was nice, clean and quiet. The staff employees are pleasant and well informed. I definitely go back and highly recommend to any families, friends who seeks for some adventures. Thanks. See More

Serious wet fun. Well organized place. Great for friends and family gatherings. All types of levels rafting. A must for your bucket list, but this is the ideal place to check if off.

Had an amazing time on this trip. Every employee we met was helpful and friendly and seemed like they loved their jobs. The whole trip was very organized and so fun! We did the easy lower gorge trip, time we will definitely level up and do the upper gorge for more action. The river was beautiful and easy to navigate for any person new to whitewater rafting. Definitely a fun, safe family trip. Oh and our complimentary lunch was pretty good too! See More

My husband and I were here quite a few years ago because we had won tickets. We have always wanted to return but never got the chance until yesterday, we went on a whim. And as we expected, had a time!!! We will not wait so long to return again, hopefully the next time with our grandsons. Thanks again Whitewater Challengers!! See More

We purchased the premier plus. The guides were awesome, the rafting was awesome. But I wouldn't pay the extra again for the premiere plus. It seemed like the only things extra you got were the lunch a...nd breakfast and the breakfast wasn't worth it. Also the website says 6 to 8 hours we were gone maybe 5 hours with atleast an hour of it being lunch. See More

Went this weekend and had a great time! The rapids aren't super tricky but a few people did get tossed out of their rafts, which is fun to watch! Guides were great! Would be a nice family trip for all ages.
