Whitewater Rafting in Lewisburg

Now that dry camping is available we have signed up.
In the past we have done rafting trips on both the New and the Gauley and they were both good trips.

Pretty short run from our house. We will be there. 2nd trip to a International for us. I sorta wanted to look around that area anyway. Grew up in Southwest VA well upstream on the New River.

I am not sure whether this is a buddy event. If it is not, you would first have to join WBCCI through a local or the International Website. WBCCI.ORG. Then you would have to make a reservation through the website or a call to Jackson Center. The full service and electric/water campsites are sold out. Jackson Center could give you the latest information on availability of Boondocking sites over the phone.

Go to the WBCCI website. You must be a member I believe.

The office is closed until after the new year. But yes you can register online if your a member of the WBCCI.

Go to http://wbcci.org and click on the big red buttons that says "Register for Lewisburg"

Only dry camping is available currently, but you will be on the waiting list for hookups, so register soon.

I don't know the official count today, but it was well over 660 a few week ago.

Ahhh, sweet procrastination has failed me again

Well, I really didn't expect the sites to fill up so soon, based on previous years attendance numbers. I was planning on waiting until the first of the year to join in order to save on membership dues. Looks like we will either be dry camping or heading to Douthat State Park. Any thoughts or suggestions? Is it worth dry camping for an entire week, or should I just stop by and visit from a local campground?
Please... no lectures, my wife is taking care of that.

I would go ahead and sign up for dry camping, there will be cancellations so there is still hope. It is always fun to camp with 700 Airstreams and 1000 friends.

It's obvious the people planning the rally facilities underestimated attendance. We've been planning to attend the WVa rally for several years (since it was announced) to make a statement that rallies in the east are a viable way to get members involved. We know several other people that are specifically attending this event in order to make a statement. Of course, we'll have fun too and meet new friends as well as renew friendships.

There are likely many reasons rally attendance has been decreasing. The reasons are varied but one of the reasons is a limited number of people can take time to drive to points far west of the Mississippi - great places, yes - but far, far from home for many of us. There are other threads on Air Forums regarding rally attendance. The rallies on the eastern seaboard have typically been relatively well attended.
