Description: This National Forest CG is located only 4 miles from I-77 (left from exit 47) and has paved roads and sites. About half of the 50 sites don’t have facilities but about a dozen have W/E (30A) while the other dozen have just electric hookup. We had site 11 which was electric only (30A). We knew this ahead of time so our fresh water tank was full. Luckily, we got sat dish tv reception in this wooded environment. The tree branches along the road in the cg could use a good trim in a couple of places.
Activities: It rained some every day we were here! I did manage to walk the mile long Nature Trail in the cg with D&T one day even though it was still wet. We had planned to hike the nearby Seven Sisters Trail and bike/shuttle the Virginia Creeper Trail about an hour away, but the weather just didn’t cooperate. Hope we can return here sometime next year. Wytheville is about 10 miles away and has all the big box stores needed.
Trash and Recycle: There are a couple of dumpsters located within the cg but no recycle.
