It was a great adventure. Had fun even though the water was a bit muddy. There wasn't too much river traffic in the morning. Go early so you can have the place to yourself.

We had a great time tubing down the New River. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had planned this outing as part of a big birthday celebration and they were able to handle our group of almost 20 with no issues at all.

My family went on the French Broad river. The guides were friendly and fun, they set up lunch for us midway down the river which was nice. The river isn't too extreme but it's still pretty fun, with great scenery.
