Article Contributed by gratefulweb | Published on Monday, March 29, 2021

Waynestock is a unique, one-of-a-kind experience you will not want to miss. Featured in the Philadelphia Inquirer and in a full-length documentary film, Waynestock has been growing in popularity since its inception in 1999. If you are an adrenaline junkie, love outdoor adventures, live music, and meeting like-minded people, this is the trip for you.

River Expeditions plays host to Waynestock each year and has been our home since day one. This world class retreat is worthy of a weekend trip. Adding to it, Waynestock brings several more amenities to make the event even better. Outdoor Adventure options range from Whitewater Rafting to world class mountain biking, hiking, zip lining, climbing, and much more.

At night, the stage plays host to a variety of great bands for two evenings of live music in an unforgettable setting.

We strongly encourage you to join our Facebook Group. This community is a wealth of knowledge. If you really want to know what Waynestock is like, just ask one of them.  Also, it’s the easiest form of communication for all of us, as we get closer to the trip date.

In 2017 Fayetteville, WV was named America’s Coolest Small Town, and is full of interesting things to do.  If you aren’t an outdoor enthusiast, you may enjoy a visit to Fayetteville, only 3 miles from River Expeditions.

In 2020 The New River Gorge became America’s Newest National Park.  They don’t do that for just anyplace.  There is a reason this amazing location was chosen.  You just have to see it for yourself.

What if I want a cabin instead of tent camping?
Limited cabins are available in the Waynestock area but are not included in the trip price.  Cabin reservations are made by calling River Expeditions at 304-574-2827.
Be sure to tell them you are with the Waynestock group when you make your reservation. This is critical to being put in the correct location.

NOTE: If you reserve a cabin on Shakedown Street – Be aware you have to decorate the outside of it. This is tradition and there are no exceptions

Note:  Some choose to extend the trip by a day or two, but that is not included in the trip price. Contact River Expeditions directly to make those arrangements.
