I'm very glad we only stayed 1 night at this campground. My grandmother and I reserved a "cabin" to stay in on the grounds. When we arrived, we found out that calling it a cabin was way over exaggerating. The little dingy 7x8' hut was in terrible condition. Dirt and grime covered the floor, the tiny window screen was completely... More

I called the first day they opened to make reservations to make sure my family and I got the spot and dates we needed. I called back a week ahead and was told there was another name on the books. Poorly organized and was basically told by the management that there was nothing they could do and took no blame.... More

As a child/preteen, I visited NRC several times. It holds many fond memories for me. I was more than excited to share the simplicity and beauty of this place with my family. I plan to continue to go here year after year. There were 6 of us that visited/stayed (2 adults, 4 kids). Not one time did anyone say "Im... More

My wife and I camped here for 2 nights last weekend and had a great time. The setting (right along the New River) and grounds (well maintained with large shaded tent sights) make this one of the better private campgrounds we've stayed at. Prices were fine ($21 for tents). There was a small store on sight if you needed it.... More

We booked our stay for the end of August and had to pay for an extra night of camping that we weren't going to use because it was a holiday weekend but we didn't mind because we couldn't wait for our all day canoeing trip! 4 days out from the trip we called to confirm our reservation and that we...

We booked a reservation for four people to go kayaking. When we showed up the next day, they had us booked for a kayak shuttle which means we brought our own kayaks? They had no kayaks available and did not even say sorry. Not only did they book the wrong information, they did not even apologize. We have been several... More

A group of 5 ladies, friends since high school (in our mid-40's now) camp here yearly. I came on here when I accidentally clicked the link and decided to read the reviews. We have always enjoyed our trips here! The grounds are beautiful and well kept. Bath house is always clean and has hot water. The folks that work here... More

We camped there on a Wednesday afternoon through Saturday a.m. Campsites are right on the New River, so nice views of foggy mornings and clear, clear, wide water rolling along. We did not take a canoe trip, since late September water temp was 62, and it was raining on and off daily. The camp is less than 50 yds from... More

I drove an hour and a half to join a party of six for a day of canoeing. We were 9 min late to arrive and the shuttle had departed. There is no accommodation for this. No offer of a ride up the put in point. I understand we were late, but in a hospitality role, I would have figured... More

This is such a beautiful campground, beautiful setting, great bathhouse, the camp sites are huge! But the management and ownership is terrible! The rules are not enforced for those regulars with extra money, beer and food! We had 3 nights of horrible music and singing beginning at 11pm and lasting till 2am, 4am! And no one working at the campground... More
