Wilson Creek NC River Rafting

Wilson Creek NC Funyak Adventure

Whitewater rafting on the Wilson Creek offers classic North Carolina whitewater rafting at its best. The Wilson Creek is steep in scenic wonders and history with crisp, clear, refreshing water flowing over gigantic granite boulders that creates the perfect backdrop for this action packed adventure.

 

The Wilson Creek drops over 85 feet per mile creating several drops ranging in height from 5ft to 10ft, creating some of the most exciting rapids in the region. The blue green waters of the Wilson Creek offers several deep pools perfect for swimming and enjoying the true splendor of the river.

 

You will enjoy piloting your own inflatable kayak on this adventure and there is no previous experience required; all you will need is the desire to enjoy yourself. The best time to experience the true magnificence of the Wilson Creek is spring and early summer.
