“Gorgeous and pristine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

This is the best kept secret in the United States! What a treat to float/kayak/canoe down this gorgeous stretch of river. It is SO peacful--a slice of heaven. Not for serious river runners needing class 4-6 rapids, but for the kayaker who just wants fun and relaxation, this place can't be beat! The river has 5 put-in spots and 5 take-out spots. Can't begin to tell you how beautiful. The scenery rivals many rivers out west.

“Excellent Trout Stream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

Excellent trout stream in western Virginia. It has many entry points and contains a release area that harbors many large trout over 15 inches.

“Best Trout Fly Fishing ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

The water that runs down from the dam makes this river very COLD all year around. If you enjoy trout fly fishing, you should be on the Jackson.
