Jennings Randolph Lake

Overview

The Robert W. Craig Campground is located off West Virginia State Highway Route 46, five miles from Elk Garden, West Virginia. The campground is located very close to Jennings Randolph Lake which provides many recreational opportunities including boating, swimming, picnicking, scenic overlooks and fishing. The resident bald eagles have been breeding at Jennings Randolph Lake for over 10 years. Bring binoculars for the opportunity to spot an eagle's nest.

Recreation

During your stay at the campground, enjoy playing a game of horse shoes or hiking the Sunset Trail, High Timber Trail or the 3D Archery Trail. There is also a playground, sandbox, and a swing set available for kids to play on. Located behind the Campground Store, the Kalbaugh Pond appeals to anglers for its stocked largemouth and small mouth bass, blue gill, and catfish. At the pavilion, shoot some hoops on the basketball court or play a game of horse shoes. Birders will love the Songbird Trail and the High Timber Trail provides 28 varieties of labeled tree species. With the trailhead adjacent to the pavilion, visitors can try out the new 3D Archery Range. Hiking trails can be accessed from the campground.

Natural Features

The lake spans 952 acres in the rugged hills of West Virginia's Allegheny Mountains. The pavilion is located inside of the Robert W. Craig Campground in a nice grassy field where your group can be semi-isolated for a nice reunion or picnic away from the rest of the campground.

Nearby Attractions

A short mile away from the campground is the North Branch of the Potomac River, renowned as one of the finest trout fisheries on the East Coast. The river is also an excellent location for whitewater rafting. The city of Cumberland, with pleasant cobblestone pedestrian streets and boutique shops, makes for a nice visit.
