About This Campground

The John W. Flannagan Day Use Area boasts an expansive lake nestled in the rolling green Cumberland Mountains of southwest Virginia, offering visitors an oasis of recreation in the summer months. The nearby dam, built primarily for flood control for the Cranesnest and Pound Rivers, creates a breathtaking lake that is maintained at nearly 1,400 feet above sea level. This day-use facility is an ideal spot for picnicking, water activities, and hiking. Natural Features: The John W. Flannagan Dam, completed in 1964, carves out a 1,145-acre lake with nearly 40 miles of beautiful shoreline in the lush Virginia terrain. Recreation: Flannagans reputation as a fishermans paradise is well-known. Visitors can enjoy secluded coves of deep, clean water that are well-stocked with bass, bream, walleye and trout. Boating, canoeing, whitewater rafting, and biking top the long list of activities available nearby. Facilities: Picnic shelters with grills, electrical hookups, a playground, and horseshoe pits provide an ideal location for parties and other get-togethers. Nearby Attractions: The Lower Twin, Cranes Nest and Pound River Campgrounds, located near the day-use area, offer overnight camping. Breaks Interstate Park is nearby, offering lodging, dining, a museum, gift shop, rafting, canoeing, and other outdoor activities.
