To check water conditions on the Greenbrier, follow this link to the ALDERSON GAUGE for current and predicted water levels. We like to see the river between 2.5 and 4.5 on the gauge for the best paddling.

Paddling trips range from 1.5 hours (2.5 river miles) up to 5+ hours (11 river miles) and in-between (5 miles or 2.5 hours), primarily between Ronceverte and Alderson, where the river provides a variety of challenges (Class I and II rapids) depending on the season.

Tubing trips are from Fort Spring to the Campground, a distance of 2.5 river miles. This section includes several small rapids, including two Class II rapids. Float time is approximately 2.5 hours, but will vary depending upon river speed. Children may be tethered to adult tubes.

All trips start at the Campground. We supply boats and tubes, paddles, PFDs (life jackets), transport and pickup. You bring hats, coolers, sunblock, suitable foot wear (no flip flops) and clothing to match the time of year and to insure a comfortable day on the river. A waterproof bag is recommended for cameras and cell phones. Our Camp Store offers several river items for sale.


    • Your PFD (life jacket) must be worn at all times while on the water.
    • We require all guests to wear suitable water shoes with backs (no flip flops).
    • Alcoholic beverages and glass containers are not allowed on the river.

The Greenbrier River offers some great light tackle and fly fishing. Smallmouth bass are the stars! Fish from one of our fishing pontoons, kayaks or canoes. You may also wade in from the shore along our 1,000 feet of riverfront. Whichever you choose, come and enjoy the river and all it has to offer.
