2018 Salmon River Release Dates

July 7, July 8, July 21, July 22, August 4, August 5, September 1, September 2

News of Note

As of 01/01/2018 all whitewater raft trips on the Cattaraugus Creek (Gowanda, NY) will be run solely by Zoar Valley Canoe & Raft Co. Although ACO will no longer be their outfitting partner at that location we will gladly answer any initial inquiries you may have about the trip as well as put you in touch with their office to make a reservation.

The Lee's Landing Trail near the CCC Statue remains closed to the public due to a safety hazard. We will continue to transport guests with our buses from the Rafting Office at Letchworth State Park to the new launch site on the East side of the gorge (about a 25 minute ride).

The Portageville Entrance to Letchworth State Park is closed due to construction at the Southern end of the park. The Mt. Morris (North Gate), Perry (Highbanks Campground), and Castile (closest to the rafting office) Entrances are open as usual.

Required footgear: sneakers or water shoes or secure sandals or crocs. Flip flops are no longer allowed.

Helmets are now required for all of our raft and duckie trips. They will be provided at no extra cost.
