Visitors can now book their campground reservations through and plan their perfect West Virginia getaway. Find your perfect camping adventure and secure your spot. Wake up to the sound of the roaring Blackwater River at Blackwater Falls State Park. Spend the day ziplining and end your evening roasting marshmallows at Pipestem Resort State Park.

Dolly Sods Wilderness

Dolly Sods Wilderness sits among the mountains of the northern Potomac Highlands and offers visitors countless trails, overlooks and camp sites to enjoy. The elevation of Dolly Sods Wilderness ranges from just under 1,000 feet to 4,863 feet above sea level. The area features scenic vistas, pristine rivers, unique rock formations, and plant and wildlife often found much more north in areas of Canada. There are campsites throughout the wilderness, but visitors can camp almost anywhere within the region – within wilderness guidelines. Enjoy adventure during the day and some of the darkest skies in the state at night – perfect for stargazing and night-photography.

Thorny Mountain Fire Tower

For a unique and out-of-the-ordinary overnight stay, head over the Seneca State Forest to the Thorny Mountain Fire Tower. After six years of renovations, a fire tower is now an accommodating home among the tree line. The tower was once used to look for wildfires, but now the 14-by-14 foot space contains two cots for overnight travelers. There is more window space than wall space within the tower, offering a 360-degree view of Cheat Mountain and Green Bank.

Step away from your worries and step into Almost Heaven. Spend a night under the stars and create memories in West Virginia that will last a lifetime.
