National Forest

George Washington & Jefferson National Forest


Morris Hill is a peaceful, rustic campground for groups of family and friends. The family campground is a family-friendly destination perched on a ridge above Lake Moomaw. Kids can have fun at the playground while older generations sit back and relax in the shade. The group sites accommodate up the 25 guests with space for up to eight tents. Campers can enjoy the wonders of camping with simple pleasures like s'mores on the campfire, berry picking in the woods, and watching for waterfowl and wildlife like deer. The convenient location near Lake Moomaw and sandy swim beaches, a fishing pier, boat ramp, and hiking and biking trails makes Morris Hill a popular spot.


An inviting swimming beach at Coles Point attracts many visitors. About less than a mile from the campground is a fishing pier where anglers seek brown and rainbow trout, bass and crappie. Back Creek is also nice for trout fishing. Hikers enjoy the Morris Hill Bike Trail and Fortney Loop Trail.


Family Campground: Most sites will fit any size RV. Campsite amenities include flush toilets, hot showers, a playground and drinking water. Group Sites: There is no water or electricity. Two fully accessible vault toilets, picnic tables and a group grill are on each group site. Coles Point Boat Ramp, the nearest boat ramp to Morris, is less than two miles away.

Natural Features

The campground sits on a ridge overlooking Lake Moomaw. It is about a half-mile from the south end of the lake. Lake Moomaw, which flows from the Jackson River, is a cold-water 2,530-acre lake with an inviting swimming beach. Morris Hill is part of the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests which spans across Virginia and parts of West Virginia and Kentucky. These forests protect 40 species of trees that are mostly Appalachian hardwood and mixed pine-hardwood forests, 60 species of mammals and 200 species of birds.

Nearby Attractions

Head downstream of the Jackson River for fly fishing, canoeing, rafting and kayaking. A half hour east of the lake is Hot Springs, Virginia, a quaint village known as a rural resort town.

Really great little campground

Quiet small campground. Couldn't ask for much more. Most sites do kind of pair up so if you need more privacy then reserve the pair of sites. Otherwise most are pretty sizable. We reserved 35&36. 35 was pretty sloped but the gravel driveway wasn't too terribly unlevel. Only real issue was where our steps came out right into a sloped area and was hard to set them right and had to be careful coming in and out. Also it made the awning much lower over our heads but we are both pretty short so no big deal there....except my husband did smack his head pretty good on the awning arm lol no worries he's ok! One night we did have some loud drunken adult neighbors just making strange noises and screaming a whole bunch but seems they didnt stay up too late thankfully. Hosts are friendly and helpful if they are around. A couple bathrooms with shower, utility sinks behind bathroom, water spigots throughout and a playground. Bathrooms were pretty clean but overrun by spiders so I definitely didn't spend any time in there. Firewood and ice available. Water fill and dump station with a lone basketball hoop. Cell service (at&t) was a little spotty but for the most part we usually had about 2 bars and were even able to watch a little netflix on the one rainy day. Lake moomaw is very pretty and just a few miles away to check out the dam, beach and boat ramps. Fishing seems very popular at this lake. Beach was small but pretty. Theres a large bathroom, a volleyball net, picnic tables and I believe a few tent camping spots as well. We visited 4 different campgrounds on this trip and this was definitely one of the top 2 favorites.

Great Primitive Camp Spot

This is a great camp located near lake Moomaw! Right off the road with easy access to the sites. First come first serve but this particular camp has a lot of sites!

Plenty close by to do for outdoor lovers, Lake moomaw is a gorgeous hidden gem that not many people go to. It has a boat launch, shaded fishing areas, bathrooms, Grills, picnic tables and plenty of parking at the lake.

Bigger towns with Big Box stores about 30-45 minutes out, Hilly roads in and out of here but nothing the mini-van couldn’t handle! Spots for RV’s, Tents, And Vans are all accessible here.

Cool foggy mornings and nice dark nights out here, Usually always someone camping in this spot so you mostly won’t be out there alone.

All sites have picnic tables and fire pits, And there is actually a little bit of CELL SERVICE! And good radio service as well!

Great stop for primitive campers!
