REVIEWS OF New River Gorge National River IN West Virginia

Peter Zupinski

This is our second trip to this area. We are whitewater rafting fans and this river is great fun for relaxing full day whitewater experience. Water is always warm in late summer and spacing between rapids gave us plenty opportunities to swim with the current. Highly recommend.

Terry beach was clean, beautiful and very well taken care of and respected by prior visitors. The sand was so nice I had to get bare foot. The other visitors we ran into were all smiles and waves but minded their own business. Great place to spend nice summer days.

Nature at its best.

Michelle Bove

This place is one of the most beautiful places in the entire United States. It is absolutely breathtaking! I have been coming here since 1976 before the bridge was even finished and I never miss a summer that I don't come down and walk the trails and see the gorgeous views. White water rafting down the river is an awesome experience. I love Wild and Wonderful West Virginia and my grandchildren will see the beauty this state offers. New River Gorge is a must see!

Nate Everidge

Went for the weekend to climb. Pretty novice climber but there was a great mix of routes everywhere. Bridge buttress was a great spot with pretty awesome views. Would recommend Zag. It was a 5.8 that was definitely worth. A little crowded at all the spots. I've seen some complaints about Bubba City but I had a great time. Met a lot of friendly people and also had a great mix of routes. Would not reccomend staying at the climbers campground. Fires weren't allowed and it wasn't very sociable. For me it wasnt what I was looking for but they did have very clean restrooms and shower. Definitely looking forward to going back. Pictures are from the visitors center.

Amy Baker

Stunning landscape, beautiful views, awesome people

Cynthia Scott

The Polish Bear

A fantastic place for adventures

Roger McKinney

Beautiful always

Karina Stephens

Awesome trails and an amazing experience. Be sure to check out the Endless Wall Trail and Long Point Trail. Both were excellent and an easy enough, yet long, hike. Seeing the river from the cliffs on the top of the mountain was breathtaking. You can even hear the excited shouts of the white water rafters below. I hiked for miles and took hundreds of photos. The Endless Wall Trail had climber's access options with paths beneath ladders. Unforgettable experience and area in West Virginia. There's so much to do, day or night, for people of all ages.

M Davis

Fantastic place for whitewater rafting on class 4 and 5 rapids. Been here twice and each experience was awesome. The experience is so much fun and the guides are the best. They will truly make your experience so much more if you are personable and respectable. Remember to tip your guides, its the right thing to do!

Beautiful out doors. It is like nothing else. You just got to get out there.

00420 MetalHead Jimmie

Magnificent, impressive and Beautiful

Margee Moore

Must do! Here is a hidden secret. This place is not over-touristed! The river is protected and isolated. You must have a guide to raft it as it contains some category 5 rapids. It was a thrill. We saw old ghost towns too that are deserted towns that got mined-out leaving behind shells of foundations. The boulders are ancient and the rolling hills gorgeous. Perfect for families with kids over 9! Teens will love it.

John Mueller

A beautiful part of West Virginia. Great hiking, white water rafting, scenic views, and nature.

Beautiful. Great place to go sight seeing. I would recommend it to anyone who's never been. It's not some where you want to go multiple times unless you just pass through often or if you live in the near by area. But it's great in the fall.
