   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.

This was a perfect camping spot for those who want silence and darkness at night. The hosts are incredibly friendly and attentive. Great pavilion and access to firewood. It’s nice that big campers can not go, and that we heard nothing but nature. Huge bonus of being on the Greenbrier River rail trail, it will be a perfect home base when we come back to do the entire trail.

Great property and great location if you're interested in biking or hiking the Greenbrier River Trail! My site was well-groomed with a lovely view of late-summer wildflowers. Steve stopped by the check on me to make sure I was oriented and knew where everything was. Dry firewood was plentiful. I could see my neighbors in other campsites but did not feel at all crowded. Plenty of room! I enjoyed my stay tremendously and would love to come back in the spring when the river level is higher.

Another view of my site. In the top left you can see a gate and bridge. The beach is just outside the gate, and the bridge is on the Greenbrier River Trail."The Beach" on the Greenbrier River My site with its beautiful wildflower view.

We had a very nice three night stay at Stamping Creek Junction. We were the only Hipcampers the whole time we were there so it was like having an entire, beautiful park all to ourselves. Steve came by and welcomed us shortly after we arrived. He was very nice and gave us info about the area. He let us know how to easily access the Greenbrier River Trail, by bike, directly from his property. Super convenient. We stayed at campsite #2. It was a short walk to the porta-john and wood shed. The first crate of firewood is free and that's all we needed. We have Verizon for cell service but couldn't get a signal from the campsite. It was an easy bike ride, or walk, to the nearby general store (Jack Horner's Corner) to access WiFi. Our son joined us for the last two nights and we had plenty of space for our truck camper and his tent and car.
*The only issue we had was not something that Steve has any control over. While we couldn't see the beach from our campsite, we could, unfortunately, hear the late night partiers. The loud music played until midnight, or later, all three nights. We always travel with earplugs so it was a problem easily dealt with. Apparently, the partying isn't a common occurrence so may not be an issue when you stay. Just have some earplugs handy just in case.

We booked the site a couple of days before the holiday weekend and received a quick response from Steve O. that we were approved. He provided all the information needed for us to get in to the private location and where our site was located. He gave us a little local knowledge on the "beach" access and fireworks that would be taking place on the 4th - very much appreciated!
The site had a newer plastic picnic table and fire ring set up by Stamping Creek which was running strong and created a wonderful babbling brook sound. Dry wood was provided - more than enough for a casual campfire. Our location, and all "sites" we saw, had level, rock-free ground for a tent. The port-o-potty was clean and stocked with tissue, sanitizer, and spider spray.
There was one other site occupied but we could barely see them and certainly didn't hear them (the sound of the running stream may have helped!).
There was a lot of local/tourist activity going on being a holiday weekend - a bit of a noise issue on our first night, but the second night much better. The river itself is the draw for both residents and visitors, so in the summer I expect there's always a lot of activity. But, in the campground you're completely secluded.
We biked the rail trail and thoroughly enjoyed the gentle grade and scenery. There are a lot of MB trails around, too.
Thanks, Steve O., for providing such a great location and amenities! If we ever find ourselves back in your neck of the woods we'll certainly stay here again!

This campground is located in such a sweet little spot. I was a little worried about heading to a campground without an address, but Steve's directions were perfect and it was helpful to have seen his photos of the bridge and gate in advance. Our campsite was peaceful and green. We van camped and it was so nice to have a picnic table at our site. The river was refreshing. We may just have to come back and rent a tube from the corner store.
