About the U.S. National Whitewater Center Charlotte 


At the U.S. National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, Whitewater has been bringing people together outdoors since 2001. The Whitewater Center is an outdoor recreation centre that offers more than 30 different recreational activities. Every feature and activity is designed to enable an all-encompassing outdoor living experience. On a regular basis, the Whitewater Center holds international competitions in a range of sports, as well as other festivals and events.
The Catawba River and Long Creek are both accessible from the Whitewater Center, which is currently made up of over 1,300 acres of protected area. Through land acquisition and natural resource management, the Center hopes to continue to expand the size of these protected sites and promote even wider access. We are confident that you will meet new people and reconnect with old ones in a shared experience outside, whether you come to bike 50 miles of single-track route or simply have a lunch beside the whitewater course.
