Black River Rafting Weekend Description:
This isn’t just Whitewater Rafting, its Black River Rafting. That’s right, Whitewater rafting in the Black River. It’s another fun bus to that weekend party in the woods. We’re camping, roasting marshmallows, blazing fires, and hopping in the wild waters of the Black River. When I say hopping… it might be more like get tossed into the wild waters of the Black River.
The Black River has a consistent damn release, so there is seldom a mild day in the water. You’ll be sure to get your share of action in the Class III – IV stuff, as well as some casual cruising through the more scenic areas.
Ever heard of “The Cruncher”? Not that cereal captain in the goofy blue hat, it’s one of the most gnarly rapids of all the Whitewater in the east. It’s so bad ass that you don’t actually have to ride it. It’s your choice – “To Crunch or not to Crunch?” The river’s a little faster, the waves are a little higher, but the game is always the same…
Our stay at Black River Bay Campground is often just as fun as the river. They have a zip line, volley ball court, and access to rent boats on the bay. We’re a short walk from town, but just deep enough in the woods that the camping game is on!
