casual, fun activity to relax and cool off on a hot day. Plan ahead as their doesn't seem to be a place to change out of wet clothes afterwards.

We came here with a Girl Scout troop. We had a blast and the crew was very cautious about safety. All kids under 16 have to wear a life vest. Although most of the water is shallow, once you get past the rapids, it is over your head. At least 10 feet deep. From the start to past the rapids,... More

NJR is fun for all -- we camped in sites 12 and 13 and they were right by the river - great views. We didn't like that they lock the bath house for part of the day and the Port-A-Potties needed to be cleaned out more often.

NRJ is a hidden gem of fun for anyone that loves the outdoors. The staff there is exceptional, with a ton of local knowledge. I appreciate the fact that they place a very high priority on safety. Always call before arriving, unless you're in the area for a few days. The New River can be difficult to predict and NRJ... More

Some of the most awesome people you'll ever meet. Just park, pay, and float all day. The bus comes to fetch you for another round. Can't beat it.

Overall, we had a good time, mostly due to the beautiful weather and good friends that joined us. We drove on over and had a nice time in the great outdoors. The river is wide and not too deep, so we felt very safe. The water was also pretty warm, so that was especially nice. It moved along in a... More

This is a family run campground and tube rental by the New River near Blacksburg, VA. I stayed with a group for about a week. The bathrooms were clean, lots of grass at the camp sites. They asked that you rotate your tents every few days to protect the grass, which we did. In ground fire pits with no covers... More

My wife and I will need to go back to provide a better review which due to the weather and the campsite folks could NOT control. We went over Memorial Weekend and were unable to use any of the water activities due to recent rain, the New River was high, fast, cold and closed to rafting. As far as the... More
