River Rafting Lake George

Hudson River Rafting Company specializes in group rafting trips. School groups, scouts, corporate outings, religious groups, camp groups, family reunions, an order of nuns looking to get away from it all – you name it, we’ve taken them down the river. Whitewater rafting is a great way to build team work and leadership skills. Our guides are trained to work with diverse groups of people and can help you accomplish the goals your group sets out for the day. There’s nothing like being on the river to relax, bond and get reenergized. We have special group rates each season. We also provide camping behind our Hudson River base camp and depending on the size of the group are willing to arrange transportation to and from the river if needed and if not already offered, an after rafting barbeque. Give us a call so we can help you plan a great outdoor experience!

WHAT TO BRING

All clothing and gear is available at our base camps.

SPRING & FALL RAFTING (Hudson, Moose, & Black Rivers)
We recommend each person bring the following for cold weather rafting. Adjust these recommendations to your personal needs. If you tend to be cold, bring more warm clothing. We’ll start from the bottom up.

  • Fleece or wool socks – we provide neoprene booties, but you’ll need thin wool socks underneath. No cotton socks.
  • Thermal underwear – (polypropylene, thermax, or acrylic – NOT COTTON) During April and May fleece tops work well.
  • Windbreaker or splash top – this will be your first line of defense against the water. * Fleece or wool hat – must be able to fit under your helmet. Skull caps work the best.
  • Neoprene gloves – Can be rented at Hudson River Rafting..

In the center of Lake Luzerne our rafting base camp sits on the narrowest point on the Hudson River -Rockwell Falls Water Park is the first waterfall on the mighty Hudson River.  Seven miles upstream we launch our rafts at Buttermilk giving us a scenic lazy float down to Lake Luzerne.  The Lower Hudson River Gorge gives people the peace and tranquility of a wild river.

To make the trip longer, we continue upstream to 1,000 Acre Ranch giving you more time to float on this peaceful river section class I water – moving current.

Warrensburg Thurman Bridge to Lake Luzerne will take all day to paddle. People who want to relax can make this a two day canoe or raft trip. The trip starts below the confluence of the Schroon River. You have to start early (9:00 am) to complete this lazy 18 mile Lower Hudson River Gorge trip.

Call for reservations and pick up your river toy – Raft, Tube, Ducky or Canoe
