New River Kayaking and Tubing Trips

We offer canoes, one-person (sit-on-top) kayaks, and tandem kayak rentals for your New River canoeing or kayaking adventure. Our Jefferson, NC rentals include paddles, life jackets, river map, transportation, and short instruction upon request!

Overnight Trips

We cover more miles of the New River and have the most experience in doing multi-day trips. Overnight trips can be as short as five miles with a sleepover at Wagoner State park or a full-fledged five-day adventure. The New River State Park system has four camping areas along 26 miles of the river. You MUST make your own reservation for a State Park campsite at www.ncparks.gov. The sites fill up fast!

You can also choose to stay at our own Zaloo’s New River campground at our main location OR Zaloo’s Outpost.

The Outpost is rented to only one group at a time. For groups 30 people and under, the rate is $250 per night. Groups over 30 people have a nightly rate of $300.
