My buddy has been a few times and finally set up a trip for a group of 8 of us last weekend. We camped at the Golden Rock campgrounds just past the Compton Rapid and got there early Friday to reserve a good spot. Saturday morning they came and picked us up around 10am and took us up to Fort... More

A group of us do an annual overnight camping/canoe trip down the Shenandoah river and we use Downriver every time. The experience is always an excellent one. The owner and his employees are always very pleasant and helpful. Their private camp area is very clean. They have firepit areas and clean Don's Johns. Here is how it experience works for... More

This was a great trip. The river current was just right as we canoed down river. The small rapids were easy to negotiate, the water temperature was quite pleasant and all-in-all the entire experience was excellent. The Downriver staff were pleasant, friendly and very helpful. The Shenandoah river is very clean and you can see fish, turtles and water fowl.... More

We had a great time canoeing with Downriver and would have stayed longer if we'd known how much fun it would be. We went early and avoided the large crowds. The staff was so attentive and helpful. Would definitely return.

We had a great trip on the river in our kayaks. There was one hiccup when they dropped us off at the wrong spot so our trip was shorter than we planned. They gave us a free canoe/kayak for a future trip to make up for their mistake. It is a very professional operation and I always enjoy my trips... More

I had been looking for a perfect trip to introduce my kids (11 and 13) to the joys of paddling. The South Fork of the Shenandoah and the Downriver crew made it a win!! I loved how laid-back they were with showing up and then setting shuttles as people are ready. Since they are right across the river from the... More

Downriver Canoe Company offers great trips on a beautiful section of the river. I find it more rustic (a good thing) than the other local options. The staff is helpful and full of good advice.

The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We had a perfect day for canoeing and really enjoyed the experience. My only complaint is that I think the canoe rental fee ($49) for an hour trip for 2 people is a bit steep.
