Rafted the Lower New River. Had a great time. I would not recommend this trip for kids less than 12 as it states in the rules or non swimmers. We did the all day trip, they provided a nice lunch on the river.

We arrived on a Monday and had a terrible time not only getting our 5th wheel up to the RV site area, but setting up in general. We have set our RV up 30 times prior in various states and have never once had this much trouble. To make a long story short we ended up having to stay hooked... More

We went down the New River Gorge in mid July. Excellent experience! Took the fam with children ranging in age from 12 to 17, all LOVED the river (one daughter wanting to become a guide by the end!). Our guide Justin Wall was a true professional, and from what we could tell, so were all the others. The camp ground... More

What a great weekend! The first thing that struck me was how clean this place was. Not just clean, it's Disney clean here. The bathrooms were huge and spotless, lots of hot water and pressure. We stayed here in an RV which was also great. There aren't a lot of RV sites, so book early if you want to RV... More

A Thrilling, sometimes frightening day on the New River on July 1. Our guide Smitty was excellent, mainly in safely guiding the raft, and directing all the paddlers. Rapids were categories 3 - 5, A truly great adventure. Bring a clip on sports bottle for water.

Visited River Expeditions June 10th/ 11th. 8 adults and 2 kids stayed in one of the cabins. The campground was very clean and well laid out. The facilities were clean and the staff was very nice. The cabin was nice for what it was. The beds weren't very comfortable but I guess it beats laying on the ground. The rafting... More

I've been coming to WV for over 25 years. I've tried other companies but keep coming back to River Expeditions. Their prices are reasonable, staff friendly, and facilities well maintained. I usually tent camp but have tried a couple flavors of their cabins. The cabins are a good option if it's raining but they are WAY overpriced for what they... More

We had the most amazing trip. The campground was beautiful and clean. All the staff were friendly and so helpful. There was so much to do. We enjoyed Bibb and Lauren while we zip lined.. They were great coaches and helped make us feel confident. Our raft trip with Candice was extraordinary. She really helped guide us through a rocky... More

We had a great time at River Expeditions! We stayed in a Luxury cabin, ziplined, and rafted on the Lower New River. The cabin was really nice - very clean and well-maintained. Ziplining was really fun, although I wish it was more scenic. We had the greatest time on the river with our awesome guide Smitty - he was really... More
