Perfect Camp Sites, just not near the river.

First time camping here, but looked all around and it seemed to have the best reviews and also located where we intended on hiking around. Let's not forget the price. Yogi Bear CG... read more

Took 8-mile canoe trip with husband, daughter, and dog (30 lbs - not huge) down the river. Although it sounds crowded, we had plenty of room in the canoe -- brought cushions for my daughter to sit on since she had to sit on the bottom of canoe. Booked the mid-week special online after calling SRO and getting all my... More

First time camping here, but looked all around and it seemed to have the best reviews and also located where we intended on hiking around. Let's not forget the price. Yogi Bear CG is over $60 a night! We stayed two nights in a shaded site that came with a picnic table, fire pit, and grill (did not use). There... More

Overall a very good experience. Plan to arrive 15-20 minutes prior to your scheduled time to allow for paperwork processing, getting life jackets, parking, etc…It took a bit longer to find SRO than I'd planned, and we showed up exactly at our scheduled time and had to really rush to make it (not SRO's fault, just word to the wise)....

Tubing the Shenanadoah is a wonderful way to relax for 4 or 5 hours while taking in beautiful scenery. We do this perhaps once a year and this past weekend we made the trip. The outfitters do a nice job of getting you to the launch point, providing quality equipment and getting you back to your vehicle. I always look... More

We recently rented a canoe on our trip to Luray at the beginning of August. We were staying at a cabin that we had rented down the road. All of the staff was super friendly. We had two small children, and even had our 3 month old puppy with us and they told us to come in and hang out... More

Found this place when researching a visit to the Shenandoah Valley. I love to be on the water, so a paddle down the Shenandoah River was a must. Their user friendly informational website, and 24 hour online reservation system made this paddle enthusiast immediately book our 10 mile canoe trip with this outfitter, especially since they were only 6 miles...

Had an awesome several days canoeing down the river. Weather was beautiful, staff was so accommodating and kind. We have used river outfitters for several years and will be returning again. Perfect day to canoe, fish, use a tree swing along the way and have a picnic lunch.

We reserved the 10:30am tubing on the Shenandoah River and it was incredibly easy. Reservation made, we showed up and were on the water in less then 15 mins (including a short bus ride to the mile marker). Bus was there waiting when we got off the water and brought us right back. It was a very relaxing float down... More

we knew it would be busy on a weekend but it was extremely tolerable (and that is not the norm for us). everyone was courteous on the water. the staff was laid back and my only regret was not asking a few more questions. we were unclear on where the "picnic" spot was on the trip. plan on going back!
