Churning waters and picturesque landscape make a perfect combination for white water rafting in the Adirondacks. With several levels of excitement available, common trips include the Black River and Moose River.
The Black River Gorge offers seven miles of whitewater rafting from Watertown to Brownville and offers a challenge for rafters of all levels. In the spring, experienced rafters can thrill to Class IV-V rapids.
For three weeks only, every April, the Moose River’s 13 Miles of Class V Rapids offers the ultimate whitewater rafting challenge. Icy waters and big drops are the reason why rafting on Big Moose has been referred to as “Slam-dancing with Mother Nature”.
In the summer, after the water level drops, the rapids become accessible Class III, making it ideal for families. Slower water means more time for relaxing and water horseplay. Enjoy also the impressive scenery within the 100-foot-deep canyon. After your visit on the river, you might consider spending more time on the water at Water Safari Resort, New York’s Largest Water Theme Park! Overnight stays for rafting enthusiasts are complete at either Water’s Edge Inn or Old Forge Camping Resort at Water Safari Resort.
