“Great free spot in a National Forest and along a river”

Stayed 9/5/2020 - FREE
Site "Turnaround"

This was difficult to find on Apple Maps, but if you pin the location, it takes you right to it. Nice little area within Monongahela National Forest.

We pulled in just at sunset on the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend and drove through the entire length of the campground to see that all the sites will filled. We got to the turn around and noticed a couple of fire pits setup and a patch of grass. It wasn't a "designated site", but it was a defined area with the fire pits. We were out the next morning, so we didn't have any problems. The only negative was having cars drive through all night.

Two vault toilets along the long road. There was a trail at the turnaround, but it was completely washed out once we got into the woods. Nice area, right on Shavers Fork of the Cheat River. A few sites are actually on the river side.

Had NO AT&T or Sprint cell service.

“Easy Access off of US-250 Makes this Scenic Dispersed Camping Area a Keeper”

Reviewed 5/14/2020

Nightly rate: FREE!
Days stayed: 1
RV Length: 36' (Fifth Wheel)
Overall Rating

This is a free boondocking and primitive camping location in West Virginia. Visited the Stonecoal Dispersed Camping Area on Forest Road 209 in the Monongahela National Forest. Campsites offer free camping up to 14 days along the Shavers Fork of the Cheat River in Pocahontas County. Hiking trails, trout fishing, the natural scenic beauty and easy access off of US Route 250 make this free dispersed camping location a keeper. Although some sites may accommodate big rigs, the forest road and the turnaround area at the end of the road is more suitable for medium size travel trailers and below, truck campers, and car camping. There is no AT&T or Verizon cellular service at this location.
