The famed granite dome watches over hundreds of thousands of outdoor adventure seekers each year, while the park itself offers over 18 miles of hiking trails, along with fishing, climbing, horseback riding, picnic spots and much more!
New River State Park
Dedicated as a National Scenic River in 1976, this gentle river is the centerpiece of New River State Park.
The New River area still maintains an old-fashioned charm. Mountain roads are narrow and winding, dotted with small farms, churches and country stores. The river itself is tranquil, offering good bass fishing, trout streams, excellent birding and inspiring mountain scenery. But perhaps the best way to absorb and appreciate the river's peacefulness is from the seat of a canoe as it glides across the slow-moving waters, which can be accessed through the Alleghany Country entry point just miles from Olde Beau.
All new for 2022 - Olde Beau now offers fly fishing and lessons and guided tours for our Guests.

One of the most wonderful things about being in Olde Beau in the fall of the year is the brightness of the stars in the night sky. In addition to being able to spot the planets and meteor showers, we can observe our International Space Station as it makes its way across the sky.
