Our family of 4 rented a Bungalow and it worked perfectly for us! We were able to cook crock pot meals and breakfast before our adventures each day. We stayed over Labor Day weekend and were the only family on the property on Thursday; that was a treat! It wasn't very busy throughout the entire weekend so we were able to enjoy the pool/hot tub and game room. We rafted the Lower New and our guide was Possum; he was awesome! He had us all laughing and was a great teacher. Our raft was the only boat that didn't lose anyone overboard! We hiked the Endless Wall trail and biked at Wolf Creek Trails. Pies & Pints and Bridge Brew Works were awesome too for after hiking/biking drinks and food. Such a memorable experience and we will definitely be back for Gauley season!

Great rafting trip. I came to town to run a Spartan race and made a long weekend of it. Our guide Brody was great. He grew up on the river and has tons of knowledge of the area. Felt very safe having never rafted before. There were 2 opportunities to swim if you wanted to and even jump off a 25 foot rock. Lunch was great, make your own deli sandwiches, salads, chips and pudding for dessert. Super impressed they set up the peanut butter far away from the other foods to avoid contamination.

My only complaint is the smoking. The other guests on my boat were allowed to smoke on the boat. Yes they asked my if I minded but I didn’t want to be put in the position to say yes and upset them. Everyone knew I was there to run a race, I’m a nationally ranked athlete and yet all smoked around me. Both the bus driver and guide on the other boat were smoking as well. Yes we were outside but that does not diminish the effects of second hand smoke. I know many people that would not be able to enjoy rafting because of allergies and asthma with the smoke. Please make the trips non smoking.

Very misleading cancellation policy. I paid for the extra cancellation coverage due to Covid and hurricane season. It’s an expected thunderstorm and I asked to reschedule since my cancellation policy says you can WITHIN 72 hours. They told me within doesn’t mean within and it should say prior to. They forced me to cancel or raft with thunder and lightning. We’ll be back to the beautiful new river gorge, but we will use a different service who can protect our safety.

We rafted today with Ian as our guide. Ciara was our guide in training. It was great! Our family consists of very adventurous to not at all adventurous and everyone had a great time. Ian did a great job keeping us safe, entertained and informed of what to expect next. The lunch was really good. We are already trying to figure out when we can make it back.

Probably the most fun we had on the water EVER! Drew was the best guide anyone could hope for, he kept everything exciting and safe! The whole crew at River Expeditions were fun, friendly and made sure everyone had a blast. Spend the extra couple bucks on the video afterward, its worth it! Oh be sure to request Drew Bee Doo Bee Doo!

River Expeditions Camping and Rafting was unbelievable! For a bunch of first timers, this place blew away our expectations. The cabins were wonderful, the saloon was incredible, and the rafting (with Reed) was exhilarating!

Carla, Will and Meghan are incredible! I’m scared of heights and they spent time showing me how safe I would be in their care. We had 7 middle school-aged boys and 3 adults. The crew is incredible at making this not only fun and exciting, but truly memorable! I hope to go again!!!
