News of Note

The long awaited renovations of the Lower Falls Poolhouse complex will begin in the spring of 2019. While work is underway on site the rafting office will be moved to a temporary facility in the Lower Falls Parking Lot, adjacent to the Lower Falls Comfort Station.

The Portageville Gate re-opened in the fall of 2019. All four entrances to the park are now accessible. As a reminder, there is a $10.00 per car gate fee and only cash is accepted at this time.

The Lee's Landing Trail near the CCC statue has been repaired and we are once again able to launch our trips from the West side of the gorge. All of us here at ACO are incredibly grateful to everyone at the park that made this possible, especially the heavy equipment operators that turned a big hole back into a usable road in a short period of time once the project began.

Required footgear: sneakers or water shoes or secure sandals or crocs. FLIP FLOPS ARE NOT ALLOWED.

Helmets are required for all of our river trips. They will be provided at no additional cost.
