Make Hawks Nest Lodge your choice for overnight accommodations. Hawks Nest State Park is nestled in the middle of the Whitewater industry and open year-round.  Don't know Gauley? Here's some information:

"Thousands of whitewater enthusiasts come to the Gauley every fall season, to paddle what is considered by many to be the one of the best whitewater rivers in the country. Gauley Season begins the first weekend after Labor Day, and continues for six weekends (five 4-day weekends, and one 2-day weekend). Dropping more than 668 feet through 25 miles of rugged terrain, the Gauley River's complex stretch of whitewater features more than 100 rapids with a steep gradient, technical runs, an incredible volume of water and huge waves. Its vigorous rapids, scenic quality and inaccessibility combine to make Gauley River one of the premier whitewater runs in the world."  Learn more at the National Park Service website: www.nps.gov/gari/planyourvisit/whitewater.htm.
