Calmwater trips meet just past our partner location: Hot Springs Campground – 315 Bridge St, Hot Springs, NC 28743. Most GPS/Wayfinding Apps will recognize it. Once you arrive at our Outpost, drive all the way up to the top of the hill where you’ll find the rafting center.
We do not recommend using ride-sharing services (Uber, Lyft, etc) to get to our main outpost. While Marshall is only 30 minutes outside of Asheville it’s much more quiet and rural, which means return rides can be difficult to secure. Please plan on driving or having a dedicated ride to your adventure. If you have questions, please call us.
