The U.S. National Whitewater Center (USNWC) is dedicated to bringing communities together through active and engaged lifestyles. Since 2006, the USNWC has been providing access to the outdoors for all levels of participants through its pass activities, instruction, outdoor school, as well as festivals, races, films, yoga and other outdoor events. The USNWC’s 1,300 acres offers a wide variety of outdoor activities for all ages and skill levels. Guests can enjoy whitewater rafting and kayaking, flatwater kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, rock climbing, zip lines, ropes courses, a canopy tour, and mountain biking on our 45+ mile trail system. For those looking to kick back, live music and outdoor festivals create a unique atmosphere of relaxation and community. The River Jam concert series takes place every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening throughout the summer months, in addition to 9 unique festivals held throughout the year.
