    Watoga state park

    Snowclem( Richard), and I stayed there last year. It was a comfortable Campground. Very nice big sites. We had a site with electric. The showers were clean, and water was hot.(it was heated too). Very quiet at night.Fire wood can be bought, and a fire ring at every site. A lot of great roads there as well.A picture of our camp site.

    I stayed there in May of 2009. Great place. Absolutely on my list of places that I must return. I was passing through so did not have much time to explore the area, but the road through the park to the North is certainly worth the bit of extra time it takes.



    Cheers, Denny

    This is a great park in a really neat area with many attractions nearby....Snowshoe Village, Cass Railroad, Grand Bank Radiological Telescope. If you fish there are several great trout streams also...Anthony's Creek being one..... Only negative is the swimming pool is filled with ice cubes!

    I stayed at Watoga for 6 days in August 2012. As mentioned my the OP, the campground is quite, clean and well maintained. Be aware that the spiders are abundant in the showers unless you get them immediately after a cleaning. I think the cleaning spray is sugar water and attracts them in, especially at dusk. This CG does not have a camp store, per say, but is within a mile (south entrance) to a local store. The roads and scenery in the area are super nice and well worth exploring.

    From the Watoga State Park Website:
    "Watoga has two separate campgrounds. Beaver Creek Campground is a 38-unit facility located eight miles south of Huntersville, near the park's north entrance. Beaver Creek offers 12 sites with electricity.
    Riverside Campground offers 50 sites along the picturesque Greenbrier River near the western entrance of the park. The Riverside area features electric hook-ups at 38 sites."

    Do you have a preference for either of the campgrounds? If so, why?

    Thanks
    Jimmy

    I've only used Riverside. I'm not certain, but it is a little quicker to get to from 219 than the other campground is from 39. They are both a ways off the road and there is a good quantity of deer, but the ride from the park to Marlinton on 219 has a stretch that might be my favorite technical ride. It may also be true that the showers at Riverside have a longer season. They are still heated until sometime in Nov.
