Join us in celebrating our 50th anniversary as the Leaders in Outdoor Adventure!

NOC started in 1972 as a small motel and gas station in the Nantahala Gorge offering whitewater rafting trips and kayak and canoe excursions to guests. We’re planning a party for the decades with live music, family-friendly activities, giveaways, adventure, and more! Join us at any of our outposts, stores, or on the river with an adventure and join in on the party!
