Fully Guided Lower Yough Rafting:

This is the most popular rafting option on the Lower Youghiogheny River in Ohiopyle State Park.

(Guide in your raft navigating the best route through the rapids)

Seven and a half miles of continuous class III-IV whitewater. This is the most versatile stretch of whitewater on the east coast. Like any river it is about choices, on the Youghiogheny you can choose what kind of experience you want. Fully Guided is having a guide in your boat which equals maximum fun and all the good hits. The guides can style you through the rapids with experience and entertain you with history and jokes.

Guide Escorted Lower Yough Rafting:

This is also a very popular rafting option on the Lower Youghiogheny River in Ohiopyle State Park.

(You guide your friends and family through the rapids in your raft.)

Guide Escorted is you driving the boat while our guides direct the trip. We pull in each trip above and below each major rapid giving instruction on running the rapids. Our athletic guides also position themselves only in strategic spots in the rapids and on the shore with throw ropes. We also have staff in kayaks ready to dash in to save the day.

Middle Yough Rafting in Ohiopyle State Park:

This is a mild section of river that is a float trip. We do Fully Guided, Guide Escorted or Rentals as well on this section.

Nine miles of pristine beauty all accessible by leisure paddling and relaxed floating. This section of river is perfect for the young and old who really just want to spend time splashing around, swimming and shooting the occasional rapid. This is a great place for Mom to switch the guiding responsibilities to the kids while she works on the tan. Dad can have his own inflatable kayak that he and the kids can jump off and swim from. On a guided tour lunch is half way down the river on a scenic beach tucked near the bike trail that runs parallel to the river. With adults in mind, it is a great way to spend the day, but not considered a true whitewater trip.

Upper Yough Class V Rafting in Friendsville Maryland:

This is World Class Whitewater that's action packed.

Ten miles of steep, tight and technical whitewater that will surely fulfill the most adventurous rafter’s expectations. Beginning with a three mile class III warm up the guide and the guest will get to know one another’s abilities and expectations. After that the river will start to drop in gradient of 118’ per mile until you reach the miracle mile where the gradient picks up to 211’ per mile. It’s non-stop continuous class V whitewater action, with boulder choked rapids that will test your brace and paddle stroke. Safety kayakers go along with each trip giving an extra margin of error, which is usually not needed, but always appreciated. The staff we have for the Upper Yough is the best of the best and we pride ourselves on our ability and athleticism. The owner of the company still guides on this section of river to ensure quality and standards that set the precedent that is Ohiopyle Trading Post and River Tours.

Middle Yough Guided Fishing Trips:

You can fish with an Orvis Certified Guide or one of our River Guides. Either way you'll be in our comfortable specially designed rowing rigs.

Fishing the Youghiogheny river for world class trout is an amazing day. Our rigs are self bailing, easy to manage, with casting platforms, rod holders and swiveling seats. Our guides can match the hatch and astound you with their knowledge of trout and small mouth bass fishing.
