Stony Fork Campground doesn’t fuss with any of your typical campground add-ons—nestled in the dense wood of Virginia’s enormous Jefferson National Forest, this camp’s biggest draws are pure tranquility and beauty. At the foot of Big Walker Mountain and adjacent to the Big Walker Scenic Byway, it has the east fork of the Stony Fork River running through it for trout fishing and splashing around. Campsites form a loop that is in itself a popular trail for hikers, though there’s also a one-mile nature trail through towering pines and the more advanced Seven Sisters Trail from camp to the top of Little Water Mountain. Warm water showers and flush toilets are available, as is a campsite host if you have questions and a horseshoe pit if you get hiked out (it happens). Also a good rest-day alternative is the town of Wytheville—home to the state’s largest pencil, which hovers outside an old office supply shop, it has plenty of charm to keep you busy for an afternoon.
