The family owned and operated Tygart River Outfiitters aspires to provide memories with loved ones for years to come through adventure and self-challenge.  We also seek to promote water safety by insisting that protective and safety apparel be worn for all activities.  

Remember to wear closed shoes when you arrive for water activities.  Helmets and life jackets are necessary gear for all water activities for your protection.  During periods of heavy rainfall, some activities may be cancelled due to water levels.   We stress SAFETY to the maximum extent.  There’s something for everyone at Tygart River Outfitters.

YOU will come as a stranger but leave as a friend.  YOU are not a number among many numbers.  We strive to give individual attention and help you and your family have a memorial day.  Tygart River Outfitters is owned and operated by Lyndon Auvil and children.   Our staff is very limited but very experienced.  New to the staff in 2017 is Leticia Riddle.  Leticia has vast experience working as a river guide.  From our family to yours…. please come and be apart of our fun for a day!

At Tygart River Outfitters, we’re different from all the other outfitters, and here’s why…

  • We’re a very small business, so YOU will receive personal attention that is not always conveyed at larger companies.
  • YOU need to know that the rivers we navigate are most exciting during the late Spring and Early Summer.  Water levels are typically down in the weeks of late summer.  so please come and visit us early in the season.
  • The rivers that we run are typically Class I and II whitewater, providing an excellent venue for families with children or the beginning paddler. Consider Tygart River Outfitters as a precursor to bigger river runs.  However, the landscape and beauty and thrill is still there.
