Middle Yough Rafting

The Ultimate Family Float Trip!

The calm and scenic Middle Yough’s Class I and II rapids are a great introduction to whitewater rafting. By paddling the gentle waters of this nine-mile section of river, you and your family or friends will enjoy the unending beauty and wildlife of the Laurel Highlands.

Our Middle Yough tours provide great rafting experiences not only for families, but also for scout, youth, and school groups. We are able to accommodate a variety of group sizes and can personalize your tour to fit your specific needs. Our rafts will seat from three to six rafters comfortably. All tours include transportation from the check-in area, all the equipment necessary for the day, and a riverside deli-style lunch. Additionally, guides accompany all tours to provide river assistance and entertainment, and to answer any questions you might have along the way.

Join our first-class staff on the Middle Yough today.

Option I:  Guide Escorted (no guide in your raft)

Our experienced guides escort each rafting tour with a guide-to-guest ratio determined by State Park regulations. Guides will paddle along instructing, coaching, and assisting you as you steer your way down the scenic river. During high-water conditions, we will change our format to 8-man self-bailing rafts with a guide in each raft due to the faster pace of the current and the need to avoid certain channels.

Option III: Guided Duckie (no guide in your raft)

This tour option is just right for groups with a lot of energy, but are not quite ready for the bigger rapids found on the Lower Yough. Duckies are one- and two-person boats that handle like a kayak but are much more stable. The guides will paddle alongside to show you the way and ensure everyone has a fun day.

Your guide will share the history, geology, and ecology unique to this region in a fun and entertaining manner.
