My husband and I enjoyed a camping/rafting trip this weekend. We found Rob and Francesca to be most hospitable. We camped on their grounds and rafted the New River. The bath house was the cleanest I've ever seen at a campground. Eddie was a very experienced and knowledgeable guide, as was John Henry. We will definitely book our next rafting... More

Francesca was very helpful and responsive to our reservation; she answered the phone at 8:00 PM and confirmed the reservation for the raft tour of lower New River. When we arrived 3 days later, the New River had risen to levels above flood stage and the staff freely explained that we could not raft the New River because of safety... More

Our group decided to purchase a video of the rafting trip from West Virginia Adventures ($53 w/tax) and after a week without receiving the video, I emailed Francesca to see when I should expect the video to arrive. No response. Another week goes by and I send another email and she responds saying that all of the videos go out... More

Andy, I completely understand you are upset about your video being lost for your trip on 8/19. We actually talked and emailed several times - I told you we were continuing to go through back-up media and were hoping it would be found. I offered you a refund 3 weeks ago, and you said you wanted the video, not a... More

We were introduced to West Virginia Adventures....how should I say this......unexpectedly. Nevertheless, they couldn't have been more friendly, professional and accommodating to our family. With 4 children ranging between 10 and 6, we could only take a trip on the Upper New River. Although the rapids were less intense, the experience for our children was no less enjoyable. High praise... More

You are welcome - it really was an amazing day. (Note to other readers: we do not promise black bear sightings on your trip. That really was a rare and magical moment.) It's great your kids are getting these experiences, and we look forward to seeing them again. Bald eagles are a little more common - we'll cross our fingers... More

Excellent experience on the Lower New River with our trusty guide Randy I keeping us informed, entertained and out of trouble, John Henry masterfully kayaking circles around us and ensuring our safety, and Randy II providing not only some good laughs, but safe and comfortable transport to and from the river (and a welcome beverage as we emerged from the...

We came with a group of eighty-four people, mostly sixth through eighth graders. We did the upper New and had a great time. Things were well organized and the guides went out of their way to make the experience great and to share about the history and geology of the river. We've rafted with West Virginia Adventures for many years... More

My friends and went to West Virginia Adventures and we all had a great time! The whole crew was super knowledgeable and upbeat.
