Reviews for New River Gorge National River in Hinton, WV

5 StarsExcellent!I have camped at the beginning of the New River near Sandstone Falls. This is a beautiful river and the falls have a boardwalk from the road back to a beautiful view of the falls. The one thing that keeps me coming back to this area are the nice people. The fishing was good. I have only been in the area near Hinton but the landscape and beauty is just wonderful.Elderly male11-19-08
