We went here because we love white water and we found an excellent groupon rate. We were signed up for the Lower New Express Trip. It's a half day trip. Our guide, Brendan, was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and really let us know what was coming and how to handle it. This water was no joke! Brendan made us... More

With no reservation or exception, it is our opinion that River Expeditions expertly balances the thrill of whitewater adventure with an incredibly talented, knowledgable, and skilled team of river guides. This outfitter attracts and employs river guides from all over the county, whose resumes, more often than not, include knowledge and experience on some of the most difficult rivers in... More

My family (kids 7 & 9) really enjoyed our day of whitewater rafting on the upper New River: lots of fun, great guides, good food, fun rapids. This family run company was also really helpful.

I was a little nervous on our way down, as I had never done anything like this before. The campground (RV sites) were very nice and met our needs. Our guide for our trip was Jake and I think we had the best guide of any other group. Jake took us through all of the best lines in each rapid,... More

I bought a camping/whitewater package through Travelzoo for our family of 5 (2 adults, a 15, 14 and 12 yo.) The campsite exceeded our expectations. We tent camped for two nights, they had clean bathrooms, a hot tub and pool and a large rec room with games and wifi. The rafting trip was professionally run with great guides. The trip... More

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
