Most popular 3 day trip, 37 miles.

Our most popular 3 day trip. This trip starts just below the start of the James River just below the convergence of the Jackson and Cowpasture rivers. It features miles of great current with numerous rapids suitable for canoes full of camping gear, gorgeous blue ridge mountain views, great fishing, swimming holes, and great camping. We shuttle customers 37 miles upstream to the Iron Gate public boat landing where the customers will float back to our Buchanan shop camping at private camp sites along the way. Lots of flexibility on your schedule the last day as you end where your are is parked (no need for a return shuttle).


PRICING INCLUDES: Rental of boat, paddles, life jackets, safety orientation, river maps, use of dry bags, 5 gallon water jugs, access to private land for camping, and all required shuttles.
