Man I loved this place as a kid, I wish they would cut down the over growth and make a beach again. I still love this place the falls are just as beautiful as ever and hopefully will make a come back.

I love Gauley River resort, it's just a little too pricey. If you lower your prices for your rooms and the grand dinners, you would attract more customers!!! It's a no brainer and of course good business!!!

Heaven on Earth. Incredibly beautiful especially in the fall. Fishing and rafting on this river is the bees knees. Ideal time is during September or October for Gauley season.

Love to Trout fish. Not a bad place but not as good as fishing small streams. Lots to do at Summersville got a beach for swimming and more.

Brenda Thompson

Beautiful historic battlefield of the Civil War era. Great place to take your family, camping, fishing, beautiful park area where they can play volley ball, swing, slide, climb, cookout, hold family reunions, etc. Great dining areas, beautiful Summersville Lake, and the New River Gorge for White water rafting are new by. Great place to experience Wild, Wonderful West Virginia!!!

best rafting in the country

Hiking Diva

Tailwaters Campground Pros: right at dam/put-in for boating. Free. Has put toilets for men/women but about 50yds away are flush toilets and running sinks (plus electrical outlets). Fire rings, picnic tables, trash dumpsters on site Cons: sirens for dam releases go off several times btwn 4-6am so bring strong earplugs. Not hammock friendly - had to strap to vehicle or up hill which was a bit treacherous. Tons of trash around - the amount of bottles and trash behind camp to river was tragic. Copperheads - someone was on the gravel road to bathroom and was bitten by a copperhead, went to ER. Can be noisy - people driving thru at all hours (1am - 5am)

Mike & Cindy's Travels

We just love this area was absolutely beautiful

Abigail Newman

Had fun exploring and climbing.

Sarah Lee

Great park for kids, birthday parties & family reunions. Bathrooms nearby & so is the water for water fun, fishing & swimming.

Erie Creek Rafter Janicki

Very convenient. Restrooms and changing areas are at the put in for Lower Gauley but not at the take out.

Brian P

Paul Russell

Some of the park rangers are very rude to people and the tailwaters is not a good place to go camping at and i give it a zero

Gary Holcomb

Lisa Moore

Richard Caplinger

Beautiful scenery, Nice atv riding on mining land. River was clear and beautiful. Great whitewater kayaking, small mouth fishing, trout. Masons branch, woods ferry.

Great overall location to visit with outstanding views. In October the Gauley river has some of the strongest and wildest rapids.

Shawn Belknap

Jeremiah Moore

Joseph Martin

Beautiful scenery, great park staff and world class whitewater!

Ross-Alexander Smith

Clean space with an area for dogs. Only issue was there wasn't hardly anywhere to turn around. And people park wrong which just conflates the issue. Be careful when pulling in.

Beautiful place for hiking, fishing, rafting, photography, and most outdoor activities that one can expect from a high quality park. The whitewater rafting rates as some of the best and most technical in the country.
