About Wilderness Canoe
Established in 1994 to provide an authentic wilderness experience to visitors of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia. Situated along a scenic and remote section of the upper James River in the southern Shenandoah Valley that is known for its excellent small mouth bass habitat. We rent canoes, kayaks and tubes and provide all necessary equipment and shuttles. We also have six private, primitive campsites along the James River.

My group has been to this camp site for over 20 years . We fish, hike , canoe and enjoy the natural camping area next to the river. The staff is very accommodating. We get the large group site each time . Thanks Charlie for all your help. See you again next year!

We booked a Kayak trip and it was wonderful! Staff was friendly and informative. The river was a little slow but the rapids were fun.

Beautiful spot right on the river, very friendly people just make sure to be on time when they day you should be so you dont miss your ride! And they have you run an awesome stretch of river which is perfect for tubing or kayaking.

Easy to reserve trip online. Staff was helpful and friendly. Our day was a bit windy. Canoeing into the wind was a challenge. Bring food and water and enjoy the trip.
