US National Whitewater Center –
The U.S. National Whitewater Center (USNWC) is dedicated to the promotion of the active, outdoor lifestyle. Since 2006, the USNWC has been promoting access to the outdoors for all levels of participants through its all-day pass programs, instruction, leadership school as well as festivals, races and other outdoor events. Whether you visit the Center’s 1,300 acres on the Catawba River or participate in the offsite programs featured throughout the United States, the USNWC wants you to play, relax and learn outside.

With tremendous hotel accommodations, an unmatched indoor water park experience and options for dining that may surprise you, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at Great Wolf Lodge Concord. The last thing anyone wants when planning a family getaway is uncertainty.
