    This camping trip was great! Having to carry all our stuff to our campsite was not so much fun, but other than that we had a great time!!  more »

    This is a beautiful park, I highly recommend at least one visit, to hike the mountains or canoe, kayak or tube down the river. The New River has some breathtaking views of the mountains, wildlife, native plant species and small waterfalls flowing down the rocky banks into the water, not to mention the history of the gorgeous old farmhouses built right next to the river. If you're planning on floating the river, it might be beneficial to check the water level before heading out, if it's at 1.9 or lower, be ready to get hung up on every rock on the way, your regular 2 hour trip will turn into 4, be sure to pack extra supplies, including sunscreen and have fun! Side Note: If you're into "canoe in" or kayak camping, they have an excellent park just for you at the Alleghany Access Campground which also offers group sites, and some fantastic hiking trails with great views, this site can only be accessed from the river, no vehicle access is available, which makes it extra special.

    We stayed here in Oct 2016. This is one of the best campgrounds I have ever visited. There was nice spacing between the sites and the bath house was amazingly clean and modern. The attendant at the office was very helpful and friendly. Definitely a great camping experience!

    Fantastic camping experience. Quiet, super clean modern restroom and shower house. Tent pad with picnic table and fire pit. Wheelbarrows from parking area made it a super easy quick trip to campsite right on the river. Great and helpful Rangers! Can't wait to return!
