We stayed July 19-22 in a Rustic Cabin. We were a little taken back and not in a good way is it is very small and they are poorly constructed as there were nails sticking out everywhere. Make sure you watch your head getting in and out of bed or surely you will have a nail stabbing you in the... More

I took my two granddaughters, 8 & 12 to raft for their first time. The whole experience was great! We camped in the safari tents so this grandma didn't have to worry about setting up a tent with only the help of the little ones. The tents were spacious and like new, and each site had a very nice picnic... More

I took my two kids, 13 and 9 for their first whitewater rafting trip here. Our package included two nights of camping, two mornings of continental breakfast and a one-day excursion on the river. This place was so clean, bathroom facilities were great and campsites included necessities like trash can, fire pit and picnic table. The breakfast was very light... More

We stayed at River Expeditions from May 14 to May 18. This was a "girls trip" in which we were rafting for 2 days and hiking 1 day. We stayed in a luxury cabin that was very nice. It had 5 bedrooms (with a queen bed in each), a full kitchen, living room, 2 full bathrooms, TV, gas fireplace, hot... More

My girlfriend and I arrived late the night before, around 10:30, and were still able to check in. The cabin was primitive but very comfortable. The facilities were extremely clean, and the amenities were plentiful. The staff was friendly, and our guide, Dar, was super chill, friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable. We felt very comfortable rafting with him and 100%... More

River Expeditions offers many activities but never forgets that rafting is their main business. The peripherals (zipline, Frisbee golf, camping, lodging, gear store, atv rentals, etc.) are nice and well done, but you can tell these people all love the river and want to share that love with us. Rustic means rustic and if you expect lodging on the level... More

There are several rafting companies in the area, this one is the best I've found, have gone back 3 years running. They have some full time guides (for year-round fun) and some seasonal guides (for Gauley season). All of the guides I've had are very skilled and have years of experience. Some are better at telling stories and keeping you... More

We used River Expeditions for our Lower Gauley trip. They seemed to be a little less expensive than some of the other companies, but as someone else previously stated, there were no corners being cut to accomplish this. All the raft guides were friendly and knowledgeable and took their jobs seriously (but still made sure we all had fun at... More

I've rafted with River Expeditions 4 times this year-twice on the New River in July, and the lower and upper Gauley this fall. We also stayed at the campgrounds one time and in the rustic cabins the other time. The campgrounds are simple (no electricity hook up in tent camping) but very clean. No issues with raccoons and the staff... More
