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.

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!!
NRJ is closed for tubing due to the approaching weather. The river will rise to dangerous levels. For your safety, please stay away from the river or any other fast moving body of water. We will post again when the river has returned to normal levels.
