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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

A group of 9 of us arranged for playing paintball here this past weekend as part of my bachelor party. It was great! All of the staff were very friendly, attentive, helpful and entertaining. It was wet and rainy for part of the day, but that did not stop us from having a blast. Anytime any of us had any... More

For this, our 10th anniversary of running the Cheat with Cheat River Outfitters our group consisted of 12 rafters. I had the pleasure of being in Dan's boat, a senior guide with literally hundreds of trips down the Cheat. The other raft was piloted by Haze, an equally qualified (and funny) guide that I have ridden with in previous years.... More

We had a group of 4 for afternoon rafting on the Cheat Narrows, which is a class 3 rafting trip. The driveway to Cheat River Outfitters is interesting to say the least...very steep. If you're a local, you'll be just fine, but if you're from out of town, you'll think your car will never make it up or down safely...Just... More

Once we were ready to go the staff once again went out of there way to help all customers involved. We made it to the river in... More

For my trip I went on the Cheat Narrows afternoon. It was my first whitewater trip ever so I didn't know what to expect. The guides made me feel very comfortable. The Cheat river is absolutely gorgeous. I loved just watching the beauty of the mountains and boulders go by. The best part was that we could swim and float... More
