Watauga River Outpost - Elizabethton, TN

Upon arriving at Wahoo’s Watauga River Outpost, guests are greeted by a beautiful panorama of the Watauga River and the surrounding majestic mountains. 

The Watauga River provides some of the best rafting the whole family will enjoy. 

This scenic white water rafting experience on the Watauga river is dam controlled ensuring consistent whitewater all season long.  After getting geared up and the safety talk, you are then welcomed onto the bus for a short drive to the Wilbur dam – no long bus rides! – where you will meet your raft guide who will navigate you through the 5 miles of winding mountains, breathtaking cliffs and wild animals. Wahoos Adventures professionally trained guides will ensure a fun and safe trip for each guest. No previous whitewater rafting experience is needed. Suitable for children ages 3 and up. 

Wahoo’s 6 acre riverfront property is available for the enjoyment of our guests to picnic and relax both before and after their whitewater rafting with family and friends on the breath taking Watauga River.
