Each weekend in October, whitewater rafting is available on the Russell Fork River in beautiful Elkhorn City, Kentucky. Elkhorn City has become the go-to place for whitewater enthusiasts, outdoor adventure seekers, and kayakers of any skill level.
The Russell Fork River, which flows through Elkhorn City, offers a range of challenge levels, from the fun class II rapids to the more exhilarating class IV and higher rapids.
