ROAD ADVENTURES HOT SPOT: NEW RIVER GORGE, WV
This month, we’re featuring New River Gorge in West Virginia as this month’s Hot Spot destination. This beautiful, rocky and wooded landscape is filled to the brim with adventure and exciting experiences. This location may be close to Ohio, but what it lacks in distance, it makes up for in breathtaking activities for the whole family!
We encourage you to read below and check out our top picks for things to do and enjoy while on your journey to the Gorge!
A Landmark River & Brand New National Park
The latest to join the rankings of National Park status since the December, 2020 Covid stimulus bill, the landmark river flowing through the gorge more than earns the title. This river and park includes great opportunities for kayaking, fishing, hiking, and soaking up the sounds of the forest all around you.
White Water Rafting
Have you ever been white water rafting? Even if you have, you’ve probably not experienced it quite like the offerings at New River Gorge! There are multiple starting/ending points to enjoy the rapids and feel the spray on your face and the heart-pounding adventure. We recommend checking out the Upper Gauley River and Lower Gauley River white-water rafting adventures!
Strap in and get ready for an experience you’ll not ever forget! Climbing, Rapelling, all down or up the many cliffs and natural rock walls across the area. While we definitely recommend you go out and climb the Gorge, we do not recommend doing this without trained personnel and the safety gear required. Safety first. Adventure second.
Want Some Amazing Pizza?
Look no further for some great eating than the highly rated and reviewed dining experiences offered at Secret Sandwich Society which is known for their great pizza, ambiance, and relaxing atmosphere. Located in Fayettesville, West Virginia, please take the trip and let everyone you take with you thank you for doing so!
Adventures On The Gorge – RV Campsites
Rustic camping deep in the woods! The RV sites here at Adventures on the Gorge do not include a water hookup or a dumping station on the grounds. But, when in Rome! These sites lack those full-RV-hookup amenities but are filled with the big reason you would visit New River Gorge in the first place: THE GREAT OUTDOORS! Hear the wildlife, breathe in the fresh air, and soak up the smell of the pines all from the comfort of your Road Adventures rental.
And that’s it! Those are our recommendations for your next adventure in New River Gorge. And we can get you there in style with one of our amazing travel trailers or RVs! Pick you dates and then check out your options for a rental by seeing all we have to offer at www.roadadventures.com/rentals.
