New River Outfitters, Jefferson North Carolina

The beautiful North and South Forks of the New River flow gently for over 100 miles through the forested mountains and pastoral valleys of northwestern North Carolina. They join just south of the Virginia state line, and the New River flows on northward through Virginia.

Because of its great scenic beauty and recreational value, a 26 mile stretch of the South Fork has been designated a National Scenic River and has been set aside for canoeing. These upper reaches of the New River are shallow and, unlike most mountain rivers, have only mild rapids. The combination of spectacular mountain scenery and relatively easy paddling makes the New River an ideal canoe stream for inexperienced paddlers, large groups, families, and canoe camping.

Many people who have never been in a canoe before have enjoyed an outing on the New River, and many come back again and again to enjoy its beauty and tranquility. If you have never been before, make this the year you Experience a New River Adventure. If you have enjoyed a New River trip before, come back again and try a different section of the river. Relax, swim, fish, enjoy the scenery. The New is a national treasure you can experience and enjoy.
