    Dunmore, West Virginia

    Welcome to Seneca State Forest, nestled near Dunmore, WV. This place is a haven for those who crave a mix of seclusion and natural beauty. With a season running from April 1 to early December, it's a fantastic spot to unwind and reconnect with nature.

    The campground offers a variety of accommodations, including tent sites, RV spots, cabins, and even glamping options. One of the standout features here is the Thorny Mountain Fire Tower. If you can snag a reservation, it's an experience you won't forget. Perched high up, the tower provides 360-degree views that are simply breathtaking. Imagine watching storms roll in or catching a sunrise from 65 feet up in the sky—it's worth every penny.

    For those who prefer a more traditional camping experience, the sites are well-shaded with plenty of tree cover, offering a sense of privacy and tranquility. Each site comes equipped with a picnic table and a unique stone "oven" fire pit. Firewood is available for a small fee, and there's hand-pumped water on-site. While the amenities are basic—think pitted toilets and pay showers at the ranger station—they get the job done.

    If you're into wildlife, you're in for a treat. Visitors have reported encounters with deer, bears, and various other critters. The nearby lake is perfect for a short drive or hike, offering boat rentals and fishing opportunities.

    So, whether you're here for the rustic cabins, the unique fire tower, or just a simple tent site, Seneca State Forest has something special to offer. Enjoy your stay!
