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!

Excellent people who love their work. Very efficient. We were going to use a different outfitter that I'd gone with before, but I came across a Travelzoo offer and after reading up on these guys thought it worth a try. They didn't disappoint. Finding the place was easy. check in was a breeze. They took us on a short entertaining... More

We just got back from a 3 day girls' getaway trip here. This is our second year coming in a row here. They offer a great Tuesday special of buy one and get on half price, so it is a great deal to hop on. We stayed at the Luxury cabins and hit up the Wal-mart which is 5 minutes... More

We went on the day long tour of the Lower New in August and had a great trip. River Expeditions was very professional starting with the phone reservation I placed just few days before the trip. They also offered competitive pricing. We signed up for the adventure raft that holds 4 people and even though we only had 3 people... More

Since you are looking at running the best whitewater in the country, do yourself a favor and run the rio with the best outfit in the area. My trip with River Expeditions was down the Lower New. The Lower portion of the New was technical and thrilling and ranks as the best water I've run in the country. The weekend... More

Awesome, except for parking while camping and we used a Groupon for the lower river trip and it was a beginners course and it truly was for beginners, I wish we would of upgraded to a more challenging course, zip lining was fun but only 4 lines and not worth the money we paid however Chris and Bambi the guides...

River Expeditions hosted our class reunion. The Fireside Lodge is perfect for such an occasion. Plenty to do for all ages. The kids enjoyed the pool in the evenings. The BIG kids enjoyed the river during the day. Loved watching the video at the Red Dog in the evening. Food by JM catering was amazing! Thank you River Expeditions!

Our 9am slot had us in need of checking in at 8. It gave us time to check out the store, use the bathroom, have some continental breakfast items and gear up. After gearing up- helmets, paddles, life jackets, we boarded the bus for the lower New River. It was about a 25 minute drive, but it went quickly. My... More
