Beautiful area

Trash, showers, restrooms. The spaces are pretty close together which isn’t my favorite. But the best part about this campground is the convenient location. Close to the recreation area. Just a short drive is the Obed boulder field and the Obed river.

Remote and beautiful.

Many beautiful waterfalls and hiking trails. Bring extra shoes because the trails cross creeks and streams! Much fun. Spend the day or the weekend!


Small private campground. Beautiful area. Couldnt ask for a nicer place to camp.

First to Review
Great access to whitewater and nature

Our friends who are avid whitewater paddlers took us here. It’s a small campground with simple amenities, amazing old growth forest. There are so many great hiking trails here, plus some rock climbing/bouldering. Note that there are some areas with similar names further east near the Appalachian Trail.

Yay: Simple and beautiful camping here! Rangers check in periodically and had great recommendations.

Nay: no potable water but plenty nearby to treat.

Surprise: Make sure to visit Lone Mountain State Forest as well. There are rafting tour companies nearby
