Without a doubt, one of my favorite places to visit in Pennsylvania is Ohiopyle State Park, and while I’d made many past visits to Ohiopyle, white water rafting was something I hadn’t had a chance to try until recently.
There is a long tradition of rating in Ohiopyle, PA. In fact, the first commercial white water rafting operator on the east coast began, and still operates, along the Youghiogheny River in this portion of Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands.
Today, there are four companies that offer white water rafting in Ohiopyle. During my visit, I was invited to try rafting out for the first time with White Water Adventures on a rafting trip they did in conjunction with Laurel Highlands River Tours.
