Watoga State Park, West Virginia

After a few weeks at home working on projects we decided to take the RV to Watoga State Park in West Virginia. Our friends Dickey and Emily joined us in their RV. Watoga State Park was one of the very first trips we took with the RV. I had forgotten how long it took to get there and how curvy and hilly the last hour of the trip was.

Watoga State Park is a great place for those who really want to get away from it all. There is no cell service or internet in the park or anywhere near the park. The campground is on the Greenbriar River and has very large campsites. We selected two campsites side by side and settled in. Since all four of us are experienced RVers it did not take us anytime to set up camp. We have traveled with Dickey and Emily on several occasions and always have a great time. This trip we biked on the Greenbriar River trail; fished in the park lake - catching six small bluegills; hiked; visited Beartown (one of my favorite outdoor places in WV); tubed on the Greenbriar River - there was not enough water for kayaking; and visited and mountain biked at Elk River Touring Center. One evening we went out to dinner at the Pretty Penny - an old hardware store that has been converted into a restaurant. The other nights we took turns cooking. It was a great trip.
