New River

Location Overview

Remote location within the NPS New River Gorge National River Park. Free camping spots for up to 14 days with picnic tables & makeshift fire rings. There is a gravel boat launch spot as well as a sandy beach area during lower flow levels. Used mostly by local river rafting guides. Campsites are geared towards tent camping but small RV’s would fit. Access road is long, windy, rough and not to be taken lightly, especially with bigger vehicles/campers.
