Overview

An Overnight Adventure

Do you love rafting the New River? Do you love camping? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then this is the trip for you. Our Double Lower New River Overnight takes rafters down the world-famous Lower New River, where you’ll take on class II-V rapids, and enjoy lunch riverside.

After a day full of rafting, we’ll bus you back to where you began your day, and make camp riverside. There’ll you’ll enjoy a dinner prepared for you by your guides, and explore the area surrounding your campsite. When morning rolls around, you’ll wake up to fresh coffee and breakfast before you gear up and relive your epic trip down the Lower New.

On this trip, you’ll raft the Lower New River twice. This scenic and exciting stretch of whitewater travels through the heart of the New River Gorge National Park. Here, you’ll see some of the scenery that have become synonymous with the New River Gorge. You’ll see sheer stretches of cliff that reach to the sky, house sized boulders, and you’ll raft underneath the New River Gorge Bridge. The best part, you’ll raft this stretch of the river TWICE.

FAQ

About the River

Did you know the New River is said to be the second-oldest river in the world? Over millions of years, its white water has carved the New River Gorge and left us with large shelf drops and boulders–a perfect combination of waves and hydraulics that make for world-class rafting. The Lower New River provides adventurous rafting, while the Upper New River is typically more tame.

What’s Included

Transportation is covered from the resort to the river and back again. We’ll also provide all your rafting equipment (helmet, personal flotation device or PFD, paddle, and boat). This trip includes lunch and dinner on day one, and breakfast and lunch on day two.

What to Bring

Bring any medication you need throughout the day, sunscreen, sunglasses, and a change of clothes to keep at the resort to change into after your trip. Guides carry small, waterproof bags to stow necessary medications. Depending on the time of year and the weather, you may also want a synthetic layer. If necessary, wetsuits and splash jackets are available for rent. Call us to book those, too.

You'll also need to bring all of your camping equipment, including tent, sleeping bag, and sleeping pad. You'll be given a checklist when you book for all of the required and recommended items for your trip.

Trip Time

This is a Overnight Trip.
Depending on the day’s water level, you’ll spend between 4-6 hours on the water, plus shuttle time to and from the river. Trip length and intensity vary based on water levels, which change throughout the season.

What is a Groover?

We use a groover and set up a privacy tent.

What's a groover, you may ask? A groover is a portable toilet designed for the river. It's watertight, easy to set up, and has a funny name that is derived from its early days of river use, when the old style used would leave "grooves" on user's legs. Now, we use toilet seats, so you don't have to worry about that little detail.

Safety

Our trip leaders and river guides will talk through specific guidelines and requirements on site before you head for the water.
