With a motto like "Mountaineers are always free," camping in West Virginia is bound to be paradise for hikers, climbers, and sightseers alike. After all, a large majority of the state is part of the Appalachian Mountains, and it includes the highest peak in the entire range. At 4,861 feet, Spruce Knob is just one popular point in the Monongahela National Park, which is also home to five designated wilderness areas, three waterfalls, and the headwaters of six major rivers of the region. The state may be best known for its wild and wonderful mountains, but campers can also enjoy features like the annual wildflower pilgrimage or a scenic drive along Midland Trail National Byway, one of the oldest in the country.
