A Canoe camping trip on the very pretty upper stretches (Class 1) of the Cheat River. The plan is to leave Saturday morning from Five Rivers Campground in Parsons WV (Secure parking is available there, and head downriver 11 miles to St George and camp at Blackwater Outdoor Adventures -- while not wilderness camping, we will have restrooms and can park cars there if necessary. This also allows people to join us on Saturday night or Sunday. Meals on your own. Canoes can also be rented here. Sunday,Leave St George at 11am and paddle to the 7 islands area which is 12 miles. This is wilderness camping and supper will be provided. On Monday we will break camp early and paddle out to the takeout at Riverview inn on Rt 50. This last stretch is 8 miles long. arrangements have been made to leave a few vehicles there for shuttle and anyone really needing to scoot home. Some experience on moving water will be needed. This trip will have 2 overnights on the river, so you must be able to adequately waterproof your gear! Contact Bill Ward botnbill (AT) gmail.com (419) 674-8210
