Beat the Heat and Wet Your Feet
The summer heat is cooking up the action on the Youghiogheny!! The Yough (pronounced "Yok") is dam released guaranteeing great whitewater action. The dam releases every Friday and Monday. Starting on June 23rd the dam will begin releasing Saturdays. Making it a three day whitewater weekend! Our Saturday trips are quite popular so if your thing is to escape the crowds we would recommend catching the Monday or Friday release.
If high action isn't your thing, the releases open up some beautiful sections of river. Take the entire family out for quality time on the river. On Fridays, (soon to be) Saturdays, and Mondays, we have two float trips; either in the morning or in the afternoon. The morning float starts below the Deep Creek Dam and flows through the gorgeous Yough canyon. In the afternoon, we float from Friendsville down to the Yough Lake. Enjoy a few riffles, swimming, and beautiful scenery. Both of these float trips are a great way to introduce young kids to the joys of the outdoors. With the bountiful wild life you are almost guaranteed to spot some kind of critter.
