The visitors centre was beautiful and the people working there were helpful and friendly. We ended up running the long point trail hike. It's an easy 3 mile out and back trail that ends with a full view of the arch bridge. I would definitely...More

I do not do heights well, and had seen photos of the bridge, thinking "no way." Little did I know that it was the actual highway over the gorge, and I had been over it a couple of times. The side "walls" of the bridge...More

Took train from Charleston thru New River Gorge to White Sulfur Springs. Leisurely 3 hour ride in a comfortable train to view the color change of trees and beautiful falls along the floor of the Gorge. Best way to see the Gorge and bridges.

I had no idea West Virginia was so beautiful. The view of the gorge is spectacular from the Visitors Center, which also has some very interesting exhibits. Well worth stopping by.

We stopped by one of the visitors' centers traveling to West Virginia and enjoyed the absolutely spectacular views of the West Virginia fall landscape. We'll stop again when traveling through this area and plan to spend more time. Beautiful!

We were driving through for work and looked into the Bridgewalk--found out that could take 2+ hours. It was suggested we just take a drive down to the bottom...along a twisty, narrow, occassionally one-way rode. What a great, beautiful, fun 20-minute alternative! The old bridge...More

It was an amazing visit, my only complaint was the hooligans who came running and jumped over the barrier and pushed everyone out the way and blocked the view AND the 3 different couples who had dogs who crapped and didn't pick up after them...More

Try Chestnut Creek Campgrounds in Lansing WV. I'm pretty sure they have tent camping but not 100% sure
