Primitive campsites on moderately flat areas of the property. There can be water available at the owner's home by prior arrangement.

The property is within sight of both Dolly Sods and Roaring Plains, and over the mountain from Canaan Valley. Dolly Sods is a few minutes away, Roaring Plains is across the valley, and Canaan Valley, including White Grass and Timberline are 15 min.

You can expect to camp in a mature hardwood forest. The property is steep, rocky, and rugged. There is no permanent running water except at the remote (and difficult to access) SE corner of the property.

Expect wild animals, including everything from salamanders, mice, and chipmunks to deer, turkey, bobcats, and bear.

The property is not suitable for large campers or trailers.

    Great host and prime spot for lots of hiking activities. Unfortunately, not enough space for an RV to find a somewhat level spot.

    Response from Robert S (Robbie), the Host, on September 27th, 2020

    With a Super Camper on an F350 or F450 equipped with fully independent leveling suspension and gigantic off-road tires, I’m not sure why a 2-3% grade on a campsite big enough to turn such a vehicle around easily would be an issue. This is,after all, West Virginia, where nothing is flat. P.S., I’ve driven a Prius up the same steep road at issue without problem.
