Finding your way to Whitewater Rafting Adventures is pretty easy regardless of where you are coming from. Below we have provided a few general locations to help you get started. However, before you get on the road we’d like to offer a few words of advice:
ATTENTION: Route 209 is completely closed on weekdays from 8:30 am – 3:00 pm. You must use an alternate road, click here for detour info.
- Public Transportation such as Ubers & Taxis are limited in our area so please plan ahead. Many guests can find a ride service to our Adventure Center, but then can not find a ride home at the end of their trip
- The directions and the travel times provided below are approximations. Generally they are very accurate but weather and road conditions can significantly impact the times so plan ahead for both.
- If directions from your location are not provided below or you would like to get custom directions from your specific location please use our custom direction generator below. We do not recommend using MapQuest because we have had numerous guests sent significantly out of their way (aka lost) using them.
- For those of you who prefer trusting your in-car or handheld GPS units you can find our coordinates below.
