River Riders - Family Adventure Resort


We had an awesome time! We were a party of 21 co-workers who decided to go white water rafting. From the initial call to find out about reservations, to the trip, it was great! Everyone in our party said they had a great time, and even the ones who fell out of the raft said they'll come back again! Our guide, Mariah, was great! She made sure we had the best experience and the best ride! The place is crowded, lots of people there! So, arrive early to check in, make sure everyone in your party has signed the waiver before the day of your trip. If you plan on eating there, give yourself lots of time, the cafe is very slow and there are only 2 bathrooms, with some port-a-potties outside.

We went on a guided white water rafting tour. It was our first time and it was so much fun. The staff provide a warm welcoming atmosphere that put all my fears to rest. You can tell the guides enjoy working together and are eager for their customers to have just as much fun. We absolutely loved our guide!!!! Fred was funny, patient and incredibly knowledge about the history of WV, VA and MD. He also made my 7yr old daughter feel like a star - she did not want the tour to end. The tour itself was perfect for us, you slowly got comfortable and then pure excitement. An incredibly wonderful afternoon!

Dr. Fink & Grimes dental office did a whitewater rafting and Zip line trip yesterday. River Riders was chosen base on their awesome reviews. I have tons of rafting and kayaking experience, so this river was a bit elementary for me. However, our guide Travis made the trip extremely entertaining. Whether we talked about the history of the river or other adventures, he was very knowledgeable. THANK YOU SO MUCH TRAVIS. We definitely want Travis as our guide for next April when the river is at its highest.

BIG THANK YOU for helping to make my 50th Birthday fun! For years I've been wanting to take my adult children rafting. Their first trip yesterday was a great experience. Now they want to do more! We had lots of fun!

My friend came to visit during the 4th of July week and we had decided to book the canopy zip line tour. It was down pouring the morning of the trip and we were traveling from DC. My friend called on the way to let them know that we wouldn't make it the hour prior that was recommended on the website. The worker on the phone was so nice and helpful about it all. The whole staff was great to work with. Our tour guides were amazing! It was down pouring/raining the whole time, but they made the whole adventure fun for us. They focused on safety while having a great time. I would and have definitely recommended this place and tour to everyone I know. I know that I will definitely be going back again, more than likely several more times!!!

Add together gorgeous scenery, a safe and incredibly fun zip lining tour (especially for first-timers like myself!) and the best guides around... and you have a recipe for the perfect little adventure. Make sure to ask for Clay and ASH! They know their stuff, are hilarious and truly caring. I pretty much haven't shut up about my experience since our group was there last week. I wish there were more than 5 stars to give.

I just wanted to let you know the outstanding experience my friend John T and I had this past weekend on our three day introduction to kayaking weekend. We enjoyed three wonderful sunny days on your rivers. I especially wanted to thank Kevin Hughes for the outstanding job he did instructing us. The entire weekend we both felt that he was closely paying attention to our progress, understanding our experience levels, understanding our weaknesses, and working with us so we had an enjoyable time and felt safe throughout the three days on the water.

I have spent many years working with clients at all different levels from CEOs of Fortune 50 companies and superintendents of school districts with my current job, working with the typical weekend warrior types while ski instructing and working with mentally handicapped while working in the Boy Scouts. I understand the importance of identifying with your clients and students and paying close attention to their development and needs during their learning process in a course. We both felt that Kevin worked to improve our kayaking skills each day while making sure it was a fun and safe environment.

Thank you for providing us with a great weekend and thank Kevin for a great time.
