Zaloo’s Canoes

Zaloo's Canoes

ZALOO’S Canoes is located on South Fork of the New River, a National Scenic and Wild River and an American Heritage River. Zaloo’s Canoes Kayaks and Tubes is the oldest and friendliest outfitter in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our ideal riverside location is 4 miles from Jefferson, NC in Historic Ashe County. We are on the very best stretch of the New River in North Carolina. 31 miles of river below us is designated as New River State Park, and a National Scenic and Wild River with 4 access areas with campgrounds that make for great 2 to 5 day canoe and kayak camping trips. We are open 7 days a week for canoeing, kayaking, and tubing from April through mid October. Reservations are highly recommended especially for weekends.

The New River is also recognized as prime for sport fishing. The New River is a favorite of small mouth bass fishermen. Trout fishing is excellent in the smaller, faster tributaries, most of which are designated general trout waters and are stocked regularly with rainbow and brown trout. Anglers need a state fishing license in order to fish the designated trout streams . A license can be obtained on line here.
