Our group of friends camped over Bridge Day weekend. The campground is on a first come, first served basis but there were plenty of spots and we were never crowded. The bath houses were amazing! They were heated and always clean, with several shower stalls to accommodate campers. They had bands at their bar/restaurant both nights we were there. I... More

A great trip with friends to Fayetteville to raft the Upper Gauley. Cantrells was great! The day was smooth, and we even got cold beer after the river!! Our guide was Phish/Fish, and I don't tink we could've gotten a better guide. He was great, and rode us through those Class Vs with ease!

The Cantrell Family and their guides were as friendly and courteous people that you would ever want to meet. When I first talked to Nancy on the telephone, she came across as a helpful friend and this, with the Trip Advisor reviews, sold me on the rafting company. When we arrived that morning we were not disappointed in our choice... More

It was my first time, and they treat me like family, the food was good, my guide "Fisher" he was great. I really enjoyed the rafting. Definitely I will go back, Nancy was so friendly, so as Stacy and all the people that work there. The cabin was very clean and even the bathroom.

Rafting the New River wirh Cantrell was a great experience. Nancy was an excellent host while Stacy and Adam provided an educational experience along with great fun! Stacy has obviously studied the river and knows it well. She is a joy to paddle with. Excellent time! Can't go wrong with Cantrell

We did a half day rafting trip with our boys ages 12 and 14. Cantrell's facility is great, with clean bathrooms and showers, a bar, causal food and camping. The rafting was a blast. Stacy was a great guide. Not only did we enjoy the rafting, but we learned so much about the area. Our start time was delayed by... More

Great rafting trip on the New River. Many thanks to Ritchie and Nancy at Cantrell's for a great weekend. Hospitality was unbelievable. Make sure you ask for Fish as your raft guide. Top notch all around! Already planning next years trip!

Cantrell is amazing, and if you like to support local businesses, I strongly suggest this place. They are plentiful in room for camping, and with a full bar, and live music this place is a great party. I go with a group of around 20 friends every year (specifically bridge day) and they give us great accomodations while also being... More

Well organized rafting company with experienced guides. Even after adding a last minute raft trip to their day,they came through without missing a beat. Cabin on the hillside is worth every penny. Bar is onsite and can walk to any of the cabins.
