  • Blackwater Falls State Park campout Oct.18-20,2018

    I guess I did not post a separate thread about this year's campout.. we had perfect weather last year and I hope we have similar weather 4 this year! I LOVE WV! I am on a fb page 4 waterfalls and am in touch with peeps who may be able to steer us, not literally, but in a good direction to see some of WV's purdiest waterfalls! I personally want to check out Dolly Sods this time so if anyone wants to do some hiking I may be doing this 1 day on the no ride day.. u will see some awesome sights of the WV valleys from up high. I will have a car for u to put your leathers in and boots if u want to wear more comfy shoes for those who want to join in on a hike on the Sods...google Dolly Sods on fb and join the group there to see pics if u r not familiar with that area.. due to weather patterns we may have to alter the ride day(s) but then that can happen on any trip..this will be my 3rd trip to Blackwater Falls and I hope to do a different section of this great state every year!

          I like black water falls camping. It's about 3 hr trip for me so we get over there a few times a year for the most part. We may make it this year,but a lot of things can happen between now and then

                I am planning on camping in the area but it may be earlier in the summer, probably July. I have some friends that I camp with that live in SE Ohio and we always stay at Lake Snowden campground which is in that area. (Google "Lake Snowden Campground" for details). I have camped in that area for many years and have visited many of the attractions in the area. I probably can make it to HH State Park the week before but will have to check the calendar first. I already have 6 camping trips scheduled this year and will add 2 more for sure as soon as the dates are are made public. I will have my schedule firmed up by mid to late March and then let you know if I can make it.

                    Aloha!

                    Well, I will be in Ohio during that time frame, and my birthday just happens to fall within those dates. Might be nice for me to celebrate with a moto-camp in Blackwater.

                    I won't know for sure until about mid-September as my work schedule is hectic from May-October, but I'm a "Pencil-In" again this year. The Honda Silverwing that I store in Ohio would love that trip as it's a delightful ride from Ohio to Blackwater on Rte 50. Good ride for that bike to stretch it's legs without having to get on the interstate.

                    Mahalo!

                      Wow u like hwy 50? HAHA!! I guess some might like it..me and Haze found it a bit unnerving..I am from flatland and am not used to all those neverending curves on mountains..However I will endure it again to get there...I avoided a lot of it last year on our way there as there was a detour..

                        Oh yes, I really like 50. Twisties are my thing. I learned to ride (and drive) in UPSTATE New York on hilly, curvy roads. Riding a motorcycle on the twisties is fun for me. I'm not as much of a fan hitting the curves on a bike fully loaded with camping gear, but it's still doable and fun.

                          I will be coming back to Florida from a workamping gig in NW Wisconsin that time of year anyway, and Blackwater Falls is not that much out of my way. Maybe I can finally make one.

                          Plugged it into BaseCamp for the return to winter camp route.

                              True! When I lived in Western Maryland, we used to ride WV a lot. Took a club to Elkins a few times too.
