Our outpost is located just 14 miles west of Bryson City, NC. on US 1974 West in Western North Carolina located in the heart of the Nantahala Gorge.We are located near the bottom of the river (take-out), so you get to enjoy viewing the full river while you are shuttled to the top (put-in). On your way, you’ll be reminded of each of the runs that we told you about in your instructional brief, and you’ll see just how you need to make your run when you get on the water.Being close to the bottom of the river allows us a very short run back to the Outpost where you are welcomed by Hot Showers and spacious changing rooms. You won’t end up waiting long periods of time while other companies are waiting to pick up the last of the stragglers that you saw an hour ago hung up on the rocks just after the first rapid. We run Large Buses and Mini Buses so your wait will be minimum at the takeout. We’ll shuttle you back to the Outpost while you are still dripping wet! Other companies are forced to wait long periods of time, until they get a full load, because they have long runs back to their Outpost. That is exactly why our trips are shorter than everyone else trips. We get you on the river, and we get you off. If you are waiting around, it’s because that is what you want to do, not because you are waiting on us!
