“New River State Park Wagner Access”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Secluded campground with about 1/2 mile walk from the parking lot to the campsites. No alcohol is allowed in the State Parks so plan accordingly. Facilities were very well maintained with several access to the New River inside the state park. A few little gardens with some of the natural flowers/plants of the area. Sighted fox/bunnies/otter/chipmunks/deer/turkey and thousands of lighting bugs.
Park is located close to Jefferson, NC with access to stores and <hour drive to many other state parks/attractions and Boone, NC.

“Gorgeous scenery”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Great place to have a picnic or canoe or tube down the river. It's absolutely beautiful. The Hellbenders are neat to watch swim around.

“Plenty to do, beautiful, fun for everyone”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

The New River is always beautiful and offers something for everyone. It's free to enjoy unless you take a tour, rent equipment, or something of that nature.

“Heaven on earth”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

Beautiful park with all its natural life and awesome river with mild rapids. We'll like to go back in summer when a lot of activities can be enjoyed in the river. Trail are wonderful and the air is so pure you could actually notice it. Nice exhibit of local inhabits can be seen in the parks main cabin.
