Staff helpful. rates excellent and taking sunscreen is a must. the new river may be low or high so that fact will... More

I took a group of 13 colleagues to Riverside Canoe for a 2-hour tubing trip down the New River. We had a wonderful time. The owners are very friendly and knowledgeable about river and weather conditions. I've been to Riverside several times before and I keep coming back because (1) it's a relatively easy float -- I have joint/mobility issues... More

Went with the wife and kids and had a wonderful time. We did the two hour tubing tour. It was relaxing with many possible stops along the way for everyone to get out and climb around on the rocks. The couple that run Riverside were just amazing. They seemed so happy to see us. All around good time. As a... More

Riverside was very professional and took their time with us. Even stopped at entrance to ensure my son didn't need a larger tube because. Had a blast and definitely will return. The river was low and slow but the company was first class all the way. Just go!!!!!

We went in the middle of the week and rented the kayaks from the lovely couple that runs the place. They were so nice and helpful. The equipment was loaded right up and we were taken to the river by another kind gentleman and off we went. It was a day of pure pleasure and absolute bliss. We can't wait... More

What a nice family that runs this place! Carey and his son Gage welcomed us and gave us the best equipment. We have used other companies and they have much better quality canoes and kayaks. We did the 5 miles on the New River South Fork. Relaxing and not crowded. My boys fished all the way down. Will always use... More

Took the family and friends yesterday to tube on the New River. Riverside Canoe and Tube rental was excellent and affordable fun. We stared at their shop and was shuttle several miles upriver then dropped off at a landing area. The people were great and we will be back. Thank you Riverside.

We arrived a little late and thankfully with it being a Friday it was not a problem! They were super nice. The bathrooms where we changed were so nice and clean. Loved the ride to our drop off point and the conversation about the river! Thanks , The Hunt's Timberlake, NC

We have a large group of friends who go to the new river tubing and kayaking every year. This year we have 34 people and they were by friendly as always. The owners are great and put up with our crazy group they shuttle and rent but call and reserve for the weekend they sell out.
