We did the one-day adventure: 1/2 day on the lake, 1/2 day whitewater. We got there a bit late in the morning, but made the breakfast - WOW, excellent food. REAL scrambled eggs and great everything else: we overstuffed ourselves. The weather wasn't too hot, so it took us a while to get into the lake activities, but after we did, it was so much fun. I only wish I had a lot more friends to share it with.
We did a quick lunch and then did the lower New 1/2 day trip: mostly 3-4's with 1 or 2 C5s. My 14 year old daughter, who never did this before, was a bit nervous with all the warnings, but by the 2nd C4, she was loving it! Our guide, Bryant, was excellent! All my family had a blast!
We got back to the camp and then had dinner. WOW! King crab legs that were better than any I've had in a while (put Atlantic City's buffets to shame!). The garlic mashed, the cobbler, the roast, the everything! We went back to the lake and hung out, but I wish I had more time to stay there.
I will say, the staff here is always ready to help! I can't believe I only had 1 day to do this, but my family is looking to going back again! This is one cool place! If you're not staying on camp, definitely bring a change of clothes and stay as long as you can. Even the guests were nice to meet and chat with.
We didn't stay on camp, so I can't comment, but I did stay in Beckley at a nice hotel and the drive was under 1/2 hour which wasn't bad.
Last comment, if you're out of state, be diligent to stick to the speed limit - especially on 19. I didn't get caught, but I met those who did... Romans 12:1-2
