Had an enjoyable weekend with family here in September. The weather was terrible, but the folks do everything possible to make the time fun and special. We were in a deluxe cabin that was fine for our 2 families to share, one loft, we all slept in the same room and talked. We cooked a basic meal Saturday night and... More

After rafting with River Expeditions on a trip on the Lower New River, we decided to do a trip on the Upper Gauley. We had a great trip. Devin was our guide and he did an excellent job. He made sure we had a fun and safe trip! The members of this company are true professionals. Would recommend for any... More

The white water rafting is fantastic! Our guide Dawn was the best. She made the trip down the Gauley a fun, safe and great experience. We stayed in a leisure cabin. Its "bare bones" and they really could use some hooks to hang clothes and jackets. There are no closets or dressers and not even hooks in the bathrooms for... More

We stayed in Deluxe cabin D with a tiny living room and kitchen with microwave and fridge. No glasses, plates, silverware, etc. We really didn't see that on the website. There's a covered porch with a nice gas grill but we weren't planning to cook anyway. Upstairs there's one room with three double beds and a futon. Still, it's a... More

My husband was so nervous of the Upper Gauley due to the class V rapids. I had heard Tyler was the best guide and requested him. I am so glad that I did. He put us at ease. He really knows what he is doing and has an amazing strategy at navigating the raft and guiding us though the river.... More

I absolutely loved it! A group of friends and I (9 total) went down for a long weekend. We stayed on site in a luxury cabin, which was wonderful! Clean, updated, and plenty of room for everyone! Just beware (especially if arriving at night), there is a rather steep, windy, gravel road that you have to drive down to get... More

We stayed at the cabins, which we are very clean and make for an excellent place to sleep. The only thing is that you need to remember to pack is plates, cups, and silverware. The good news is if you forget, you can make the short walk to the camp store. We (age late 30s) were on the Upper New... More

We stayed at the River Expeditions complex 2 nights and rafted with them as well. I've been rafting using this company (fka Appalachian Wildwater) for 20+ years. This was my 1st trip with my kids and they LOVED it and can't wait to go back for bigger rapids. Being beginners, we took the kids on the New River. There were... More

My boyfriend and I made sure to reserve one of the smaller 12' rafts, less crowded:) and we ended up being the only two on the boat, along with our guide, Brendan! He is a great guide! You're in good hands if you ask for him! Have fun! It's so beautiful out there!
