  • America's newest national park is amazing! Lots of great hikes, good campsites (show up as early as you can), white water rafting, fishing, and rock climbing. There are also several state parks nearby for additional camping. Be aware that due to the unique terrain it can take 30 minutes to drive to drive between locations that seem close on the map so make sure you plan your routes in advance!
  • We have never been to New River Gorge and were so excited to see what kind of scenic hikes they have for us and our dogs. We found a few moderate hikes, but one that lead to a beautiful view of the bridge and rapids below! It was lovely and well worth it. We will most definitely be back. We love it here!
