    Getting a good workout and a chance to spend some time outdoors will make you glad you came. The nearby hotels are a bit away from the river, but if you don’t have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. You
might be into whitewater rafting or kayaking or both, doesn't matter, there are lots of good spots for that around here. On this section you do get some distance, it's good length for a morning trip. Whitewater rafting and kayaking spots in West Virginia tend to be more forgiving than the national average, so you'd better keep in mind that rivers in this state are not as hard as elsewhere. There are campgrounds quite near the river where  
you can camp. There are some good sections to paddle in this river system, the Blue Bend Recreation Area to confluence of Greenbrier River section is one of them.

Briefly about the general area:
While staying at Anthony Creek you could always explore Big Draft; going for a hike along the Blue Bend Loop Trail will let you absorb the natural beauty of this vicinity. Greenbrier State Forest is worth stopping at if you're at Anthony Creek; you'll possibly meet some people from Frankford here. This river is so wonderful. A tour to Anthony Creek wouldn’t be complete without a trip to close by Watoga State Park.
