Overview

Blue Meadow is a group campground. In the event that this campground has not been reserved, it may be opened for overflow. At this time, sites 1-17 may be claimed as individual campsites on a first come, first serve basis.

Natural Features:

At an elevation of 1,860 feet, the campground is in a pleasant, wooded valley along Anthony Creek. Across the creek lies Round Mountain.

The Monongahela National Forest comprises about a million acres of forest that attracts 1.3 million visitors each year. A variety of animals make their home here, including black bear, coyote, wild turkey, white-tailed deer, red and gray fox, bobcat, fisher, otter and mink.

Recreation:

Anthony Creek attracts anglers looking for trout. The "Blue Hole" in the creek is a favorite spot for swimming.

Anthony Creek Trail follows the creek in a narrow valley filled with rhododendron and many flowering forest trees. Blue Bend Loop Trail offers 3 scenic overlooks and has a trail shelter for overnight use. Both trails are recommended for hikers and bird watchers.

Blue Meadow's group campground is divided into 17 campsites, including 4 walk-to sites. It comes with picnic tables, grills, lantern posts and trash collection services.
