We made a spur of the moment one night trip up here from Virginia, and I do glad we stumbled upon it! There are only 8 or 9 camp spots, each with a leveled area for a tent and a designated fire pit. There was a notice saying wood was for sale, but didn't say where. Luckily we had our own, just needed to be sure to burn it all. There were hiking trails leading to the Appalachian Trail, I wish we had been able to hike more! I honestly was most thrilled by how quiet it was with only a few neighbors. Definitely worth checking out ❤
The Cove is by far one of my favorite places to escape the DC suburbs. With great trails, a lake, and outdoor shooting range we can easily spend the whole weekend or longer. Mostly primitive camping, some smelly holes in the ground to do your business, if that's your preference. We have gone in big groups and also just the boyfriend and I and have always left wanting to go back soon!
