NEW for 2017 is our Premier Plus Whitewater Rafting Trip which offers a smaller, more personal trip option through the class 2-3 rapids of the Lehigh Gorge State Park.

Try a more challenging experience with our Whitewater Marathon that takes you through 25 miles of the Lehigh Gorge State Park or our NEW Inflatable Kayaking (Ducky) Trip.

No matter your experience level, the Lehigh River offers a trip meant for you! Join us at the Lehigh River Adventure Center to combine your rafting experience with camping, biking, hiking, paintball, and more. Onsite dining services provides three meals a day for a reasonable price.

Took the troop of 8th grade girls camping and rafting. Ordered tents to be put up ahead as we were arriving late at night. Upon arrival staff showed us exactly where to go. Tents were big (8 girls squeezed in one to be together) (5 or 6 would fit comfortably). Late at night staff moved tables for us and made... More

We wanted to take our 5 year old grandson on his first white water rafting trip . We did the family trip. Tanya and Tom both worked hard to make sure that we all had a great time. Every aspect of our trip (reservations, check in, lunches, safety info) was handled so smoothly. I was very impressed. Our grandson is... More

Thanks! We are so happy to hear we've hooked another youngster into the thrills of whitewater rafting. In just a few years (at age 9) he'll be able to step it up to the next level and try some more exhilarating class 2-3 rapids on the Premier Rafting trip. More

Our Scout Troop has been attending the early Spring dam release for many years. Whitewater Challengers goes the extra mile for their guest. Many thanks to our river guides, camp staff and especially their Food Service Staff of Lorrie & Donna. Outstanding hospitality! Many thanks again and we'll see you all next season.

It was our first time ever whitewater rafting and I'm so glad that we chose Whitewater Challengers during the scout weekend! We spent the night on Saturday night because we were driving from Northern Virginia & everyone at the campground really went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. The dinner was great (what a treat not to have... More

We went to Jim Thorpe to bike ride on the GAP trail and noticed that the rafters were having so much fun! Our hotel had a brochure from WhiteWater Challengers so we decided this was our plan for the next day.

From the time we checked into our campsite to the time leaving we received GREAT service from all employees. Our disappointment was with the lack of activities at the campground and the bathroom/shower situation. Bathrooms always seemed to be dirty and this campsite only had cold water showers, something we were unaware of and should have been told ahead of... More

Low water was an issue throughout the 2016 season especially this fall. Dam release weekends offer more water and bigger rapids, making the trip fun for a day out with family and friends. On the Lehigh River the class 1-3 rapids are great for a first taste of whitewater. For a more challenging and action packed adventure I would recommend... More
