Watoga State Park
Reviewed 17 July 2013

This camping area is nestled in the mountains of WV and is beside the Greenbrier River. There is a lake within the state park and there are cabin rentals, also. The campground is relatively quiet and there are many sites along the river with great views. Before you get to the camping area, be sure to stop in at a little store called Jack's Corner. I think I have the name right. They have a great soft served ice cream cone that has a marshmallow flavor to it. They, also, rent kayaks, float tubes and bicycles. I almost forgot to mention that this area has the Greenbrier River Trail following the river from Caldwell to Cass. This is a beautiful scenic ride along the river. I highly recommend this campground and activities to all travelers.

Watoga State Park is located in the middle of many outstanding mountain biking trails and a great place to use as a home base. The trails that we ride are free and range to over 4,000 feet in elevation with spectacular views. The Greenbrier River Trail is one of the trails that travels for about 75 miles, following the Greenbrier River through scenic countryside, through two tunnels and over several bridges. You can ride smaller segments of this trail, as small as 4 miles. The cabins at Watoga can accommodate various family sizes and are reasonably priced. The cabins have running hot and cold water, full bathrooms with showers, fully equipped kitchens, wood burning fireplaces with wood provided, grassed outside area suitable for playing or eating out, and located in a mountain setting. Some cabins are heated and there is a swimming pool centrally located in the park. There is also a camping site in the park.
