Where are we going today?

There is SO much adventure to be had in West Virginia, you could say it's a pretty...ACE...experience out there!

Well, lucky for you ACE Adventure Resort is ready to give you all the adventure you could hope for! And we really mean...ALL!

Have you heard what kind of activities they can offer you? How about some of the best white water rafting in the entire world! How about scaling some of the amazing cliffs that surround you when you go out rock climbing?

How about grabbing those mountain bikes and hitting the trails for a day of adrenaline rushing fun? What about feeling like you're flying with the zip lines and ropes courses?

We haven't mentioned the ATV rides yet, or the VERY messy mud obstacle course! (Don't forget to wipe your feet on the way in!). If it's animals you love, then why not get out there and enjoy some horseback riding? If it's water you love, why not get out on some kayaks and enjoy the wilderness around you. Perhaps you can even spot some wildlife!

Feeling a bit of combat in you? Then head on over to the paintball field to get those team work skills in action! Maybe the parents want to enjoy a spot of fishing as you are completing your mission?

Then as a family you can all try some disc golf, or the bridge catwalk! Pretty amazing!  

ACE Adventures are also a resort, so there are plenty of accommodation options should you want to make that family day out a weekend...or even a week!

Great for those active kids to get them out into the great outdoors - and we mean GREAT!

I'm Hungry!

Some trips offer lunch on the river, and you can be sure it will be tasty! It's hot, and it's grilled .

Any Top Tips?

If you want to fish by the river you need a state licence - and you can get this from the WalMart 10 minutes away. .

Doing our bit

They are all about safety and know what they're doing. Some trips / activities have an age restriction, so keep in mind this is in place for a reason. .

Need a little extra help?

They can take paraplegics AND those who are blind on the trips! .

    My husband and I just spend 4th of July weekend at ACE...it was great! We got a cabin/tent and it was worth the money to not have to put ours up. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. We rode mountain bikes our first day there, and Katie was wonderful. She took us to a great waterfall and told us a lot of history about the area. The second day we went white water rafting down the Lower New River. GREAT!! D-Rock was wonderful. Very at ease with everybody, made sure we all had a great time. The food was excellent. The buffet at breakfast...Read More

    A group of us spent the weekend rafting at ACE and let me tell you we had an amazing experience as always. Friday we were on a raft with a great guide named Bode. It rained almost all day but we couldn't have asked for a better experience.
    Saturday our trip took us on Duckies to the lower Gauley. Susan and the boys were so much fun! We had thrills and spills and some great video from John to show for it. I would recommend ACE for anyone who wants the whole package of rafting and the best guides on the river. Our evenings were spent at the Lost...Read More

    The cabin wasn't quite as nice as it looked online, but overall we had a great time. Getting checked in was a little confusing and more/better signage could be used. The Upper Gauley was moving too fast on our day, due to some flash flooding earlier in the week, so we rode the Lower instead, which was pretty disappointing, but you can't control nature. Our guide was great, the bus ride was scary (but safe), and everyone we dealt with was very friendly and polite.

    Do not trust this company. I purchased a DVD of my rafting trip and they gave me the wrong copy and will not replace the dvd with the correct version. They have been giving me the run around for 5 months. I will never go back here.

The buffet at breakfast was good...but the buffet at dinner was even better! Again, we can't say enough positive things about this place. Safety is their top priority and they took great care of us. This is a definite must do again!

We can't wait to come back!
