The U.S. National Whitewater Center (USNWC), a non-profit outdoor center situated on 400 acres of woodlands along the Catawba River, is dedicated to promoting the active, outdoor lifestyle. Alongside mountain biking and running trails, a climbing center, zip-lines, flatwater kayaking, high rope courses, and a canopy tour, the facility's most unique feature is a multiple-channel, customized whitewater river for rafting and paddling enthusiasts of all abilities.

Dogs are allowed on the grounds, outdoor restaurant, hiking trails (on-leash), kayaks, and stand-up paddle boards, but cannot join you on the zip line, ropes course, or whitewater rafts. Dogs are also welcome at special events like the Thursday River Jam with live music, Olympic trials, and family camping weekends.

Bring Fido Along if you don't plan on Rafting
April in Atlanta, GA
The whitewater center is dog friendly! You can hike, kayak, and enjoy the riverside bar with your canine friend!
 
Great trails w/ variety but need shoulders.
Joe in Belmont
Great trails w/ variety but need clearings to escape the bikers. Especially around blind curves. I try to look before I get in one of these blind spots but bikes can come up on you pretty fast. I'm sure the bikers would agree. Great place!
 
Watery fun
Eve in Greenville SC
We visited in January on a very mild day with 70F temperatures. There was no rafting but still plenty of people on the ziplines and enjoying a bit of unseasonally warm weather. The trails are pet friendly with plenty of doggie amenities. Next time my pup will have to enjoy a bit of kayak time!
