The Destination
Outdoor adventurers know you have to search far and wide to find true wilderness these days. When no municipal park will do, set out for the mountains of "Wild and Wonderful" West Virginia. About six hours west of Washington, DC—but only one hour south of Charleston—the Gauley River National Recreation Area covers more than 11,000 forested acres and 25 miles of whitewater rafting heaven. You won't find wilder, more consistent rapids anywhere in the eastern US.

The Digs
To call ACE Adventure Resort "remote" would be an understatement. Let's put it this way: In addition to an address, the resort provides latitude and longitude coordinates to help you find it on the map (here's a tip: check the website for directions, as GPS systems usually get it wrong). ACE enlists experienced guides to lead its rafting trips—after all, what would you expect from North America's largest adventure resort?

The Diversions
Bring your own tent, equipment, and supplies for two nights of camping at the resort. Make sure to get good rest on the first night, because in the morning, you're off to a full day of whitewater rafting on the Upper or Lower Gauley River with the help of an veteran river guide.

You'll fuel up with a hot breakfast Saturday morning, then embark on a day-long trip that takes you over unpredictable rapids, varying in intensity depending on rainfall and scheduled dam releases. Just when you think you've spent every last drop of adrenaline, you'll take to the shore for a rest and a grilled riverside lunch. Don't dally too long, though—you've still got a hot dinner and live musical entertainment to enjoy on Saturday night.

  • "Had an awesome time! Definitely something everyone should do, and do it here. Great people, great scenery, and fantastic guides."
