“Everything is unbelievable!”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

Cantrell's is a great experience; from their campsites/lodging, wonderful food, staff, guides and rafting experience. They have a great onsite bar that has great bands playing on the weekends. This was a Father's Day present that was well worth it. Kudos to this family owned and operated company!

We went with this company based on the reviews and we definitely made the right choice. This family-run business may be the smallest outfit offering rafting on the New River but they are the biggest in terms of service, experience, and fun. Eddie was our guide and he knew every twist, turn and rock in that river and also provided us historical information about the area, pointing out the old towns that used to line the river.

Nancy was welcoming and made us feel at home right from our first phone call. She really cares about the people who stay on their property and wanted to make sure that everyone had a great experience. She answered all the questions we had and offered a great package for us over the 4th of July weekend.

We stayed in the Deluxe Amish cabin which was more than enough room for two adults and two kids. There's a hot tub and a fire pit that we used at night. The bath house is clean and a short 20 yards from the cabin.

We are definitely coming back to Cantrells for the rafting and also to do some of the other outdoor activities offered in Fayetteville.

After reading many reviews and deciding that we wanted Cantrells based on their excellent reviews and that we didn't want the big commercial places based on the fact that they ship people down the river like a herd of cattle... I can say that we made the right choice! If you want guides that are incredible, knowledgeable, funny, caring, adventerous, and every other awesome thing you can think of then choose Cantrells. Randy, Shaggy & Rob were amazing. If you want a cookie cutter experience, choose the other guys. Thanks dudes! Tia & Dustin

Smaller rafting company with personal touch. Immediately felt welcomed and relaxed. Within 30' everyone was calling me by my first name. Very professional guides and great rafting. Guides Stacy and Adam enjoyed the day as much as the patrons. I'll be back soon. Tom Rice/Lexington,KY

I love rafting and have had experienced it around 8-9 times in different places. Out of all the previous trips, I had the best time this spring with Cantrell Ultimate rafting. These guys are friendly and know how trace the route and steer the raft for most fun.

We are so happy we found out about Cantrell. The owners are extremely nice and accomodating. We had a schedule change due to bad weather and they worked with us to fit us in another weekend and gave us a great deal. The rafting guide was experienced and knew everything about the river and all rapids (we did the lower New River). We would highly recommend Cantrell to first timers as well as experienced rafters/campers! Looking forward to our next trip!
