Overview

Natural Features:

The campground is situated on a ridge in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia. The Monongahela Forest extends over the north central highlands of the state, encompassing many of the region's highest peaks. Elevations range from 1,000-4,863 feet, and Gatewood sits at 4,300 feet.

Variations in terrain and precipitation have created one of the most ecologically diverse national forests in the country.

Recreation:

With over 500 miles of hiking trails, visitors are have many options in the forest, including the Gatewood Nature Trail.

With some of the most beautiful overlooks in the area, Spruce Knob Lake offers fishing and boating opportunities (fish are stocked). No swimming is allowed.

Unobstructed views of the night sky bring stargazer clubs to this spot all summer long.

Facilities:

Three group sites are available that can accommodate up to 20 people each. Picnic tables and campfire rings are provided, as are accessible pit toilets. Drinking water is NOT available in the campground.

Nearby Attractions:

Spruce Knob, West Virginia's highest peak, lies just 9 miles from the campground. It overlooks forested ridges and grassy open pastures. Visitors can drive or hike to the top. Rock climbing is also a popular activity.
