It really was nice here. If you are using maps to guide you, it will call the site by another name rather than Chief Cornstalk - ‘pine’ something. The drive in made me doubt there was a camping area was to be found. It’s a narrow, windy road that, depending on what you drive, would be a tight fit meeting an oncoming vehicle. Only one other camper was there.

There is a shooting range nearby so daylight hours could be loud but at night just the crickets and maybe an owl. There is a small lake there as well. The water’s edge has litter from fishermen I’m guessing.

A perfect quit place to stay multiple nights but very limited cell coverage (ATT). Off the beaten path but worth it. 4 stars instead of 5 just for the drive in and back out.

Eight campsites, no services, vault toilet, pads are grass/gravel and short. Nice short walk to very small lake, more of a pond. Only one other camper the night we stayed. DO NOT follow Google maps directions from WV Rt. 2! This is a very long, one lane, winding, hilly and gravel road in places, the pavement had given way in several places. Use the entrance off US 35, it is still one lane but is paved and only about 4 miles to the campground. No cell service.

“Unable To Get To ”
