Overall Rating

The Sherwood Lake Road dispersed campsites are our favorite free spots to camp today's date. There are approximately 17 to 20 sites. Most sites could accommodate more than 1 tent & several are on large fields which would accommodate large groups that would like to camp together. The only time that we have seen it completely booked up solid has been during opening deer season. So stay away around Thanksgiving other than that we've always found a site the location is located on Meadow Creek so water for filtration is available as well as water for your shower or sponge bath. The stream is stocked with trout in the spring and when you go to the end of Sherwood Lake Road and enter into the National Park you have access to Sherwood Lake and that is amazing fishing bass, bluegill, musky, & catfish. There is trolling motor only boating allowed. No live minnows/shad allowed for lake fishing. There is a beautiful beach area with a large bathhouse and a little island in the middle of the lake that you can get on by boat. We actually stayed longer than 14 days ( 21 ) during off-season with Rangers permission.

Our FAVORITE place to camp in WV!!!

We have as also stayed in the paid camping too ;)

After 5 or 6pm there is no charge to enter the National Park and we used the bathhouse at that time for a real shower occasionally.

You will love any of these free sites!!!

Always leave NO trace!!!!
