If you want a secluded camping spot in one of Mercer County’s state parks, Camp Creek’s Pack-it-in and Pack-it-out guarantees you a night under the stars.
First, make reservations for the site. Then, pack up your gear in a backpack. Don’t forget to add marshmallows for the campfire. What is a night out camping without toasted ooey -gooey treats?
You start off your adventure on a hike. The first .9 miles is a steep switchback trail to the top of Farley Ridge. Then, it is a 1.5 mile hike along a scenic wooded ridge line to the Almost Heaven Road and Trail. At the end of the .6 mile trail is the campsite.
You will find a picnic shelter, fire pit, two tent pads and primitive bathroom facilities.
Relax and enjoy the stars in Mercer County!
If hiking to your sleeping bag isn’t for you, Camp Creek State Park offers three other campgrounds.
Marsh Fork Campground contains 26 trailer/tent sites, 16 sites with electrical hookups, 7 sites with water and electric hookups and three sites with full hookups. There is a heated bathhouse and two accessible sites.
Blue Jay Campground has 12 rustic tents sites. Amenities include water fountains, picnic tables, grills and fire rings. Open all year, but some facilities are limited during the colder months.
Double C House and Rider Campground is the only state park to offer housing for your horse! That’s right. You can bring your horse with you when you go camping at Camp Creek State Park. There are two, four and six horse occupancy sites. With 25 miles of horseback riding trails, there isn’t any reason to leave your favorite animal at home. Open year round, but some facilities might not be open during the winter.
Whatever your camping style, you will find it at Camp Creek Resort State Park! For more information, call 304-425-9481. The park is located on 2390 Camp Creek Road in Camp Creek, WV.
