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.

New River Junction is also a small, family oriented campground located right on the New River. Our camping area is open 7 days a week from May 1 to September 30. Reservations are required.

It’s turning into a long, cold winter here on the river and we are missing the sun. We could use some reminders of summertime fun and thought maybe you could, too. We put our cold, tired heads together and decided a little contest might be in order. We need something to take our minds off flood recovery work, bitter cold weather, and the lack of sunshine. Please post your favorite pics of summertime floating at NRJ. Give us sunshine! warm water! smiling faces! a reason to keep going!! Our staff will pick a winning picture, one that makes us hopeful that summer will come again. We will send the winner a NRJ tee shirt just for giving us a reason to carry on. We will consider pictures of floating on the New at New River Junction posted before noon on January 20th. Would funny captions sway our decision? I don’t know but it’s worth a try!
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
