Absolutely gorgeous !

This is our favorite campsite and park that we’ve been to in the state of Virginia! We have so many more to explore but Douthat state park is huge the lake is so much fun, and the trails go for miles! We just started camping and hiking and can’t wait to explore more of the country!!

Very peaceful scenic campground.

The campground is butted up against Sherwood lake and a small mtn ridge range that divides West Virginia and Virginia.  Even though I didn't get to go fishing it looked like a very nice lake to fish in.  The campsites themselves are very nice and the majority is right on the lake.  There is very…

Great Campground!

I went on my first solo camping trip to Spruce Knob and had a wonderfully relaxing time. The camp sites were spacious enough and spread out well so I still had a certain level of privacy. Spruce Knob Lake was a great spot for Milky Way star gazing. On my way in, the road was a bit rough and smacked…

Well run

This is a good campground for a short stay. The sites are small and close to each other, but well maintained. The bath/shower/Laundry facility was very clean and fairly new. The utilities were great. There is a small swimming pool that the kids were enjoying, a short trail, and chickens all over.…

Lovely Place

This is a wonderfully priced spot nestled in the middle of some great outdoor adventure opportunities.

We stayed in the mountain view cabin lower level with our two dogs. The upstairs neighbors were probably as quiet as they could be but you could still hear them walking around and using the…

Beautiful and secluded

About 7+ miles in from the town of Durbin on a dirt road (not sure how that would go in an RV but easy in a small vehicle). Beautiful dispersed camping near a creek in dense, lush forest. Not much for views and only stayed one night so didn’t get to hike but it was a perfect, quiet spot for an…

Amazing late night stop

We ended up getting in late but the place was very quite and clean. Perfect for our first night in the woods. Nearest cell signal is about ten miles up at the House Mountain Overlook. Rangers on site were super sweet.

  • Creek runs through the campground. Spots on the water fill up fast.

We loved it

Great campground with many sites right on the lake. A place to swim and kayak. Great hiking trails - we chose the one with multiple water crossings. No hook ups but that’s ok with us. Very out of the way so take everything you need. Beautiful drive there too.

Quiet, well maintained rustic campground

Admittedly, we had awful weather - it rained more than 50% of the time.  The weather ruled out our main purpose for being their which was astrophotography at Spruce Knob Lake and doing some hiking.   That said, we had a lovely walk-in site with a nicely situated tent pad, fire ring and large picnic…

Bolar Mountain

This place is amazing. I could stay here every weekend and not get tired of it. Warm water, fresh air, no service.

Beautiful campground surrounding site 34 at Bolar Mountain Campground

This was our first camping trip to actually visit lake Moomaw in Warm Springs Virginia.  We had been close before but never made it to the lake itself.

First off, sorry for the audio on the video we uploaded.  It seems in March of 2021 I was diagnosed with having lung cancer and it is pinching the…

Great grounds

We camped here over Memorial Day weekend for a little getaway. We mainly came to fish—since this spot is an easy drive to Spruce Knob Lake. (Had a great time trout fishing!) Campgrounds were clean and well-maintained. Ample space, picnic table, fire pit, firewood available on site, solar-powered…

Hidden gem at Spruce Knob

This is a great spot for a large group. Very spacious with two vault toilets. We were able to find quite a few nice hammock spots in the trees if that's your preferred camping method. The ranger checked on us each day and took trash and resupplied toilet paper as needed. Will definitely go back.
