The river will draw you, gently and peacefully, as you float over small riffles in your tube. About a mile down stream the rapids are splashing. Ride the rapids a few times then visit Big Falls Park, where the park grills will be hot and ready for cooking. The free shuttle bus will be available when you decide to go back for another trip down the river. A lazy, inner tube drift down a mile of pristine river cupped in a tree-lined mountain valley provides the perfect escape from a hot summer day.

Hurricane Florence gave us a river crest of 16.5 feet in September. Hurricane Michael decided to best that and give us 24 feet of water in October. Mother Nature wasn't done yet. We got a foot of snow in early December. It's been a crazy fall at NRJ.
It will be some time before we are tubing again but, if you just can't wait until spring in the mountains to float, we've got just the thing for you. Cave tubing in Central America! If you aren't up for the long trip, no worries. Come spring, we will be here waiting for you on the New...weather and water levels permitting, as always 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r0CNaDcH0Kw
The river crested Monday night into Tuesday morning at 16.5 feet. NRJ and our neighbors were spared any significant flooding due to Claytor Lake levels being lowered significantly in anticipation of the storm. We are very grateful!
The water has dropped almost back to normal levels. We do need it to drop a little more before we will put tubers back on the river.
NRJ is closed for tubing today due to high water levels. Keep checking back. The season is not over yet!!
