We stayed at the Waggoner side campground. The location was beautiful and it had a really nice bath house which was modern and very clean. The rangers were helpful and friendly. There was a field which had thousands of fireflies at night which was amazing....More

We stopped off for a nice easy hike through the woods and along the river. It was everything we had hoped for! We saw some geese along the river and as we hiked through the forest The View got better as the higher we went.

This camping trip was great! Having to carry all our stuff to our campsite was not so much fun, but other than that we had a great time!!

After a second Saturday of hiking at Mt Jefferson decided to check out New River State Park at the 221 access. Located only 20 minutes from Jefferson this made a perfect second venue for hiking this day. Although not loaded with trail mileage we were...More

Mild whitewater (class I & II) on the South Fork of the New River. Cooperative small mouth bass. Clean bathrooms at the campground. What more would you like? We camped at 220 access, and used the canoe launches at both Waggoner's and 220. Nice park...More

The SP is fragmented... 221 access and Wagoner's access both have RV campgrounds. The 221 access RV campground is about a mile from the river, and 2 miles from the canoe launch. Not sure about Wagoner's
