The Deerfield Portion of the North River Ranger District is located in the heart of the scenic ridge and valley province of northwestern Virginia's Allegheny Mountains. This district features varied and abundant wildlife populations of turkey, grouse, black bear, squirrel, and of course, white-tail deer. There are 161,000 acres in this portion.

Most of the recreational opportunities in the North River Ranger District are of a dispersed nature - hiking, hunting, horseback riding, camping, fishing and picnicking.

The Dry River Portion of this District includes portions of Virginia and West Virginia as it straddles the scenic Shenandoah Mountain. This portion covers nearly 230,000 acres of forest land, with a variety of recreational opportunities such as hiking, biking, hunting, fishing, ATV riding, horseback riding, and camping.
