    Pam,

    There are lots of nice places in WVA. Here is a link/map for just a few.
    http://www.wvparks.com/map.htm
    You can click any of the dots that turn to the pointer/finger and get further information.
    We love camping in WVA. The price is right at most places we have checked. Pipestem is our favorite, but is Southern Central WVA.
    We want to try Blackwater Falls (north/east).
    If you like old trains, you should give a try to Cass, WVA (East Central). Closest camping is Whittaker - about 2 miles from Cass train station. Train ride is about $18.00 goes to the top of Bald Knob - 5 hr round trip.
    Enjoy...

    Chelse,

    We certainly will. There are so many places we want to visit, many in North Georgia, just a little far for a weekend. With the wife working and not much vacation (2 weeks) it is too easy to use it all up too soon...so we have to ration a little.

    Will keep posting...

    Chelse and Pam,
    We have been to Blackwater Falls a couple of times. The campground is very nice and there is also a lodge. Many nice hiking trails and the falls themselves are very nice. Be careful, some of the trails lead right to the edge of a large gorge - no guard rails - at least that was true the last time we were there. I'm sure you will have a great time there.
