New River Outfitters needed

Recommended Posts


Can anyone recommend a professional rafting outfitter for a family day trip on the lower New R. in WVa. ? Going to take my 12 year old daughter on the way home from Junior Olympics championships (swimming)in Virginia Beach.............good program research for a future overnighter w/ my Venture Crew.

Twice we have used Rivers Whitewater Rafting Resort for a week's trip. They do have day trips and also had many family groups there as well as scout troops. They were extremely professional, very safety conscious, and overall, generally very nice people. Facilities and equipment were top notch. You can get them at 1-800-TRY RIVERS or at www.riversresort.com

Based upon Semper-dude's recommendation, our troop used ACE Whitewater. They were awesome. It's an all-inclusive deal. They have tons of activities (mountain biking, climbing/repelling, etc.) and a lake full of inflatables and a zip line. The guys had a blast. And the dinner when you come off the river was incredible! You almost couldn't call it camping.


They also have cabins and lodges for those not wanting to camp, just in case your family doesn't want to go too rugged.
