We stayed here for Bridge Day kids, their friends, myself and my boyfriend and everything was on point perfection! The sites were big and spacious, wooded for that primitive feel, the bat...h house was a welcome plus for the smaller ones, and Seth's hospitalitity was exceptionally abundant -- we will most definitely be back, again and again!

We really enjoyed our weekend here! Seth was friendly & super helpful during our stay. We had 4 adults & 6 kids (ages 6-11) and site 30 was perfect for our 2 large tents, 1 small tent & picnic table... area. It was close to the very clean (by campground standards) shower house & restrooms. Hot showers & flushing toilets were great to have especially camping with kids. Would definitely stay here again if we come back to go rafting! See More

Super awesome primitive tent camping! Seth was super awesome and we loved everything about this place. Spacious sites with room in between so I didn't feel like we were on top of other campers. Shower... house was clean and well maintained. We will be back!!! See More

We stayed over the weekend for my daughter's first camping trip. We expected to have more people with us to make her feel more comfortable but they didn't stay. After meeting Seth and watching him kids to throw a disc she decided she was going to be just fine! Couldn't ask for a better campsite. Clean bathrooms, hot showers and everything you need right there. And it's always nice to know you can call or text someone if you need help. Will be staying here often! See More

Had a great time at the NRG this past week, and thoroughly enjoyed this campground. Very reasonable pricing, close to the crags, and no charge hot water showers! What more can you ask for! Seth was to talk to and work with! Will definitely go back next trip! See More

My family decided to make an impromptu camping trip to the gorge one Saturday afternoon. After driving 5 hours labor day weekend we showed up a little after 11pm! Ciara (owner) was in the camp offic...e even though it was so late and made sure she could find us a spot in her packed camp ground! We ended up in a more secluded area, but it was honestly the best camping site we have stayed at to date! She texted to check on us quite often, and was always around when we needed anything! My daughter made friends with her son on our last day and didn't want to leave! I wouldn't even attempt to stay anywhere else while being in the area! Chestnut Creek has stolen our hearts as an all time favorite campgrounds! Thanks again for being so amazing! See More

My other half and I stayed at Chestnut Creek back in November last year whilst climbing at the New. It was bitterly cold and wintery but the campground was sheltered and welcoming with lovely fire pit...s and secluded sites tucked away in the trees and the bathrooms were clean and the showers warm. Seth was really friendly and helpful and pointed out where the climbing spots were and generally helped us out in any way that he could. I'd love to come back to the New and would definitely want to stay at Chestnut Creek again and would recommend it to other visitors without hesitation. And it's super close to all the crags too.

This is my go to Campground for when I come up to climb. Everything about this place is awesome. The owners seem to always go above and beyond to accommodate. The facilities and campground are alway...s well maintained. The best part? It is quiet! I never have any issues at night with trying to go to sleep, unlike other campgrounds nearby. You also get a nice fire ring per campsite. I really can't say enough about this place. Thank Y'all for all that you do! See More

Incredible weekend with our friends and family for my daughters 13th birthday. Seth was super informative about the area, accommodating, and we love the personability of this family run campground...s...hower house was clean and well attended and we especially loved the candid rules/reminders posted here. The only thing that could make it better would have to be a disc golf course on site...ha! Keep it up guys...we will be back over and over. See More

We stayed 2 nights at Chestnut Creek over July 4th weekend and loved every minute! Although it rained most of the days and nights, the raised platforms kept us nice and cozy while we listened to natur...e's songs from our tent. The bathrooms were always clean and I enjoyed a surprisingly hot shower too! One thing to note is that you'll need to bring a grate for the fire ring as the site we stayed in wasn't furnished with a grill/grate setup. Overall I had one of the best weekends ever at Chestnut Creek and can't wait to get back!! Thanks a lot, Seth!! See More

Stayed with our family of five, ages 4 and up...the owner was spectacular.... SUPER NICE guy...Had some rowdy neighbors at 2am, and after the final straw, I called the owner at 2am. He answered, and said he'd be over ASAP to quiet the campers down. He didn't fail us! We heard him speaking with them to quiet down, in which they eventually did, and the owner texted me shortly after to make sure if we needed him again to be sure to call him at anytime, day or night, stressing that he cared about our stay and our enjoyment. My family and friends who were with us were thoroughly impressed with the owner's desire to keep his campers and their families satisfied. For this fact, we will continue to camp here, as we have in the past. See More

Small, Friendly, Family run campground. When I told the wife and kid we were going to do some rustic camping bridge day weekend I got some eye rolls. However, during our stay the amenities at this cam...pground were cleaner than most of the restaurants we went to. Will stay again. See More

Our group stayed here over Labor Day weekend with 2 little kids. Everything was perfect. The bathhouse was clean with a nice sink area off to the side to wash dishes. Our campsite was great- lots of s...pace yet not too close to other campers. Plenty of areas for hammock set ups and tents. Location was great too, right in the middle of everything. We've stayed at another campsite before but will be returning to this one. See More

In 2016, NRAC, Kenny Parker and Psicocomp presented the first ever Deep Water Solo event on real rock. It was incredible to watch the New River Gorge outdoor co...mmunity pour their hearts into this event, and share their not-so-little secret with Climbing media.

When I edited this film over a year ago, I kept finding my story line revolving around Inge Perkins who quietly took first place in the female division. In fact, I remember having to remind myself that the film wasn't about Inge. I needed to let my girl crush chill.

I remember meeting Inge a few years prior at Smith Rock. I watched her climb this heinous 13c (lucky pigeon) in the piping hot sun without one single complaint. What a fucking boss.

I've always been inspired by Inge's humble strength, and positive perspective on nearly everything. Inge was refreshing, and I wont forget her.

Huge thanks to NRAC, Kenny Parker, and Mike Call for making this event happen, and thanks for all the support.

Also thank you to all the athletes. Summer in the SE is rugged, ya'll crushed.
