We offer one camp site (sandy soil with cedar mulch) with a fire pit, chairs, picnic table, outdoor sink. This primitive site is on the New River.  Wake up to the serenity of nature just inches away! Take a quick dip in the river before you start your day.

About 100 yards opposite the camp site is a treehouse with a fire pit table. Just a perfect spot to enjoy your coffee in the morning or read a book in the afternoon.

There is a beautiful waterfall within walking distance. Bring your fishing poles and fish standing in the river, or let us help you book a fly-fishing trip with our friends nearby.  Enjoy a day tubing with ZALOOS with the drop off right around the corner. For those that want to be a little more low key, we have one canoe, two kayaks and four tubes on site, or just take a hike up the hill directly behind your tent which is part of the New River conservancy.

The NEW RIVER STATE PARK is a short car ride away and offers beautiful hiking trails, boat launch or pick up, and public amenities, including showers. Take a day and travel to breathtaking views at Mt. Jefferson State Park, or the Blue Ridge Parkway or discover the charming town of West Jefferson with restaurants and boutique shopping. The amazing Grayson Highlands, featuring the wild ponies, is only 45 minutes away.  So many places to explore and get back to nature during your stay on the NEW!

Steve is a great host! He upgraded my tent spot to an A frame. He offered advice on things to do in the area. The a frame had everything we needed. Thanks

This was a great place for short getaway for us. Steve thought of everything and he and his wife were so friendly! I would recommend staying here for sure and hope to be back soon. Also, downtown West Jefferson was a pleasant surprise. It was a really charming town with everything!

Had a great 2 night stay at New River. The host Steve was very friendly and put me up in a cool little a-frame since it rained most of my stay. Still had a great time and recommend the area as it was very chill and comfortable.

Steve and Leslie at "Tent Camping in the New River" made our stay wonderful! The campsite was perfect-on the river. We were so happy to find it complete with marshmallow prongs for toasting our marshmallows since we had forgotten ours! Our hosts helped us to get out on the river with kayaks and tubes and we, along with my 8 year old and 12 year old, had so much fun! You will love this location. We drive to the sweet town of Boone and to see wild ponies at Grayson Highlands State Park. We will go to this site again. Loved it!

Had an awesome time camping on the river. Great spot, super friendly hosts, accommodating conveniences and close to town. The little “A” frame is the cutest thing. We will definitely be coming back! Loved it!!
