Quaint park tucked away in the hills of VA in Big Stone Gap next to South Fork Powell River. Although our site is right on top of our neighbor, that is NOT the norm. Sites are spaced out with some full-timers, part-timers and vacationers. The owner allowed us to choose our site, and after having driven through a full day of traffic, we chose the easiest to pull into (pull thru sites and back in sites available). Picnic tables and fire rings are located at each site.
At the entrance, there is an amazing covered shelter with picnic tables, rocking chairs and grills. The park is well manicured with flowers and trees- and, make sure you search for the tree gnomes (carved into the trees). You might even find one hiding in the trees you chose to hang your hammock.
The greenway runs just over the river and takes you into Big Stone Gap where you will find local restaurants and shops, as well as every city’s fast food restaurants. We will definitely return for a longer visit!
