QUIET, PEACEFUL, NO big rigs, NO generators, limited occupancy. DARK, NO unnecessary lighting, fireflies are spectacular. WATOGA STATE PARK, lake and pool, 5 miles  "THE BEACH" in Seebert yards away

1-2 bars of cell service (good enough to text) at the beach, 2-3 bars (maybe a call) at store, Full signal at 219 2 miles away.

   Perfect for tent, van, pop-up, tear drops, small trailers. 10 feet in height or less (must go under GBRT bridge to access)

            Located at the intersection of the Greenbrier River, Greenbrier River Trail and Stamping Creek. The Greenbrier River Trail is a 78-mile former railroad now used for hiking, biking and horseback riding. It is the longest trail of its kind in West Virginia.  The campground is a lush green site of approximately 10 acres populated by a wide variety of hardwood trees.  The campground has primitive sites, with a single "porta-potty" on the property.    Some sites may require parking your vehicle and walking the last 100 feet.  The campground has a 20' x 24’ covered pavilion common area with electricity and adjacent firepit.  Picnic tables are scattered around the property.

A few fire pits are spread around the campground.  Firewood is available, 1st crate is on the house, $5 per crate afterwards. Please return crates promptly.

The property is an active farm for the collection of maple sap (Jan-March). Please do not disturb hillside tap-lines.

If you are traveling the Greenbrier River Trail, you come off at Stamping Creek, this general location is often referred to as the Seebert low-water bridge.   The campsite entrance is on the down-river (left) side as you go under the train trestle.  Entrance is through a combination lock.

If you are driving, on Route 219 in Pocahontas County West Virginia, at approximately 1 mile north of Hillsboro, turn onto Seebert Road, toward Watoga State Park.  Take this road for two miles.  Initially straight, this road then winds down the mountain with numerous tight turns.  Proceed cautiously and slowly.  At the two mile point you will have reached the vicinity of Jack Horner’s Corner and must turn around and go back up Seebert Road approximately 400 yards.  At that point, Seebert River Road goes off to the right directly down to the Greenbrier River, proceed about ½ mile.

Horner's Corner is located 0.7 miles downriver from the campsite along the Greenbrier River trail.  Open 7 days a week, 0900-2100, they rent float tubes, bikes, kayaks and sell pizza, hot-dogs, sandwiches, beer, soda, soft-serve ice cream, camping supplies, groceries.

We had a great stay this weekend despite the deluge of storms we encountered. The campsite was clean, mowed, and just as expected. We paddled, biked, and ran straight from our site, and loved the ease the property provided for our adventures. We had some raccoons visit in the middle of the night - both parties said “oh wow! That’s what they look like”, then carried on - otherwise all was quiet. We especially loved our 20 mile out-and-back to marlinton for pizza in a drenching rain storm; an excellent adventure!

Such a lovely place, easy to find and within an easy drive to many many activities. Or we could have easily stayed in and rode bikes, visited the corner store. Absolutely 100% recommend. Went with our kids, ages 2, 4 & 6 and they all had a fabulous time. We rode a bit of the trail- goes right by the site, tubed down the river (just campsite to the bridge downstream 3/4 mile or so was enough for our crowd). Took a 15 min trip to Droop Mtn lookout tower, has an 80s style playground- high metal slide, very tall swings- major hits. Also took day trip to Beartown park (20 min) and cranberry glades (20 min). The visitor center at CG has live snakes- another hit with the youngsters. It rained ALOT during our 5 day stay and we could have seen ourselves doing much more riding had the weather been drier.
No reservations about recommending to anyone. It was truly a pleasure.

What an absolutely beautiful place! My group and I stayed at camp site #3 and it was spacious, had a clean porter potty and they checked to make sure if you needed anything. We went tubing down the river just outside the campsite, built plenty of bonfires and checked out the store close by called Hornets Corner. I’d definitely take a look inside there as they have so many cute items & helpful ones as well for your trip!

Unfortunately, I locked my keys in my car with only 30 minutes left until our departure time. However, one of the gentleman working on the site offered us to stay an extra night if needed. Luckily, we were able to get into my car after a few hours. Overall, such a great experience and we will be returning hopefully soon😊

We loved the site. Dark and quiet, lots of trees. The sites are far apart so it's private even with others there. We didn't build a fire but a milk crate full of logs were ready for us if we wanted to. We just had two adults and two dogs but the site is large enough for several more folks.
Our site had super easy access to the Greenbrier River Trail. If you want to bike the lower half of the GRT, this is near Seebert and will make a great car basecamp.

Five minute walk on the trail from the camp site

My hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed staying here! It was super quiet and as it was early in the season, we had the place to ourselves. There is one Porta-John that is very clean and not too far away. fire-rings and picnic tables at each site and a free crate of firewood. Each additional crate is only $5 so bring cash if you think you’ll need more. We brought a big box of our own wood (not knowing if any would be available) so only used it and the complimentary one but next time we will def skip bringing our own. The camp really is well situated for river access and the GRT! We had no issues with mosquitoes but ticks were already out so we needed deet for our legs. All of the sites are under trees so this early in the season we could see the stars at night and have sun during the day. In the summer I’m sure the leaf cover will be a lovely welcome. There’s zero cell service (with Verizon) and to me that was the best part! No internet temptations or phone irritations. If ever in this area again, we would def stay here again!
