Kumbrabow State Forest

Huttonsville, WV

Located on top of Rich Mountain along the western edge of the Allegheny Highlands, Kumbrabow State Forest in Randolph County is West Virginia’s highest forest. With 9,474 acres of forest at an elevation of more than 3,000 feet above sea level, Kumbrabow is used for recreation, watershed protection, commercial forestry and wildlife management.

Kumbrabow State Forest features six completely furnished pioneer cabins, open from April to the first week of December. The cabins are equipped with cooking utensils, dishes, flatware, bed linens, towels and outdoor charcoal grills.

Mill Creek Campground offers 13 primitive sites and one large RV site, in pristine settings, near patches of Rhododendron and a native brook trout stream. The camp sites include a fire pit and picnic tables. Firewood can be purchased at the campground or at the office.

The campground is open mid-April through the first week of December. Campsites may be reserved anytime online, by phone, or at the campground office. West Virginia State Park campground reservations are available from Memorial Day through Labor Day each year. Campgrounds are open on a first-come, first-serve basis after Labor Day.
