Enjoy a thrilling white water rafting trip in one of the newest designated national parks.

The New River Gorge National Park features the rugged New River, one of the oldest rivers in North America. Located in southern West Virginia, this park covers over 70,000 acres and is a great place to take a white water rafting trip, rock climbing excursion, or do some primitive camping in the Appalachian mountains. The section of the river within the park flows from Bluestone Dam to Hawk's Nest Lake. There are many trails and scenic viewpoints to choose from if you want to do some hiking during your visit.

Be sure to bring your camera and binoculars to witness the natural beauty of the area. There is a rich diversity of wildlife and ecosystems to see along the New River. You can also see remnants of old homesteads, coal mines, and railroads along various trails within the park. You can get brochures and more information regarding these sites at one of the four visitor centers within New River Gorge National Park. The park is open year-round, providing many opportunities for outdoor recreation. This is a must-see place if you're touring through West Virginia; take a trip here with your friends and family today!
