The U.S. National Whitewater Center is an awesome spot to visit for a day trip with friends or family but it will take more than a day to try every course, trail and zip line available.
Whitewater, flatwater, and land activities galore! The whitewater center offers many different ways to explore the outdoor center created for the US Olympic trials. There are fun courses for any age group including rafting, kayaking, flatwater kayaking, mountain biking, rock climbing, zip lines and ropes courses! The center offers many different types of day and season passes for purchase either online or at the center.
Aside from outdoor adventures, the USNWC has many different special events and festivals. Thursday night River Jam features a live band every Thursday performing along the rushing river. You can check the center’s online calendar to see the upcoming schedule. The USNWC also has a wonderful restaurant with great food and a large variety of over 20 craft beers.
