  1. Looking for a church youth group weekend trip full of activities for a Fall time frame . Any info would be greatly appreciated . Thanks

  2. My wife and I are planning a trip to your area next month. We are experienced paddlers in mostly CL I-II creeks and rivers. Elkhorn Creek is our go to creek. We also love to canoe fish! Looking for an outfitter to shuttle us to do the Levisa River and possibly more rivers around your area….Licking, Rock Castle, Licking….
    Can you help us?

    We will be bringing our own canoes …..
    And looking at camping in the area too.
    Of course all of this is weather dependent..
    What is the recommended CFS for the Levisa?


  3. Pikeville City has the Hatfield McCoy River Trails company that will pick up at their business on Bob Amos Drive, and pick up at the end of the river route. Keep in mind that the Levisa Fork is a lazy river, a far cry from the rapids of Elkhorn City’s river. It just depends on what you’re interested in. As far as shuttle services, unfortunately we do not have a shuttle service at this time.
