Thanks for the memories. We had an awesome time. Ready to do this again. Jeremiah was an awesome guide . would most definitely raft with him again. Your outfit is truly class act and very well ran.
Took my family on the 3 hour tour. We had a great time!! Staff was very friendly. Our guide (Mark) kept us all safe and kept us laughing!! We'll be back. SOON!!!
We had a great time and Sarah made the trip down the lower Yough a blast.
Anna was THE BEST guide! We had a great time and can’t wait to come back!
We have done the lower Yough with you twice and are thinking about trying the upper. A little nervous after watching the videos though! How many fit in a raft for the upper?
We had a great trip thanks

This is pretty terrible. This is a prime example of a few individuals ruining a great resource for the rest of us.

We need your help! For the last few years Ohiopyle State Park and the Friends of Ohiopyle(FOO) have been working together on a project to build a pavillion at the Sugarloaf Sledding Area (where Winterfest takes place). After years of fund raising and effort FOO finally raised the funds for the materials and park maintenance staff has been working diligently to get it built before the snow flies. The first photo was taken on Tuesday, October 16. The second photo was taken in the same spot on Wednesday, October 17. As you can see someone has stolen the pavillion materials, notably 10- 8"X8" walmonized posts. FOO had to sell a lot of grilled cheese sandwiches and t-shirts to pay for these posts and your tax dollars have paid for the labor to construct this. If you have any information that could help our law enforcement to find the perpetrators, please contact the park office at 724-329-8591.

It's going to be 80° for the first weekend of October, as well as the last #upperyough Saturday release. Plenty of space still available. Don't pass up this beautiful weather and get on the #youghioghenyriver this weekend or ride the Great Allegheny Passage with Ohiopyle Trading Post and River Tours.

This weekend is the official start to Autumn. Celebrate the change in seasons with a new to you bicycle. We're having a massive SALE on all of our Trek Bicycle Shift 3's. Our mechanic has gone over each making sure they are ready for the Great Allegheny Passage or simply riding throughout Ohiopyle State Park! Stop on in to find your new ride this weekend!

Can't believe it's Labor Day Weekend already and you haven't had your fill of summer fun? Give us a call to set up your Labor Day Weekend rafting trip! We have plenty of space still available for the Upper and Lower Yough. Don't let summer slip by and get on down to the #youghriver this weekend!
