    We were down at Blackwater Falls and the surrounding areas for a fun day trip today. I am going to attempt to post the website to view the pictures.

    WV SPs are awesome! Went to Blackwater Falls several times as a kid and visited Pipe Stem when my cousin lived in Beckley 25 years ago. Never got to camp at either one but would love to return! I LOVE my birth state, even though we moved to MI when I was 3. Our family vacations were always "home" to WV to visit the grandparents and great-grandparents. [:D]

    You all are making me sick! I miss WV. I get back at least once per year (Deer Season [:D]). Wish I could get back more often!

    Right now I'm thinking summer of 2015, 2014 is already booked, maybe 3 or 4 nights here then head down to Great Smokey National Park for 4 or 5 nights. That would get two off my list in one trip.

    We are no longer "Carolina campers", lol. We relocated to West Virginia and are wanting to camp at Blackwater Falls. This was a stomping ground for me back in the 70s when I lived in the panhandle of MD. Beautiful beautiful area!

    Its a super nice campground and park.

    The West Virginia mail in reservation system, along with the fact that only 20 of the 30 electric sites are reservable in the entire campground including the non electric loop, makes organizing a rally there very "challenging". It can be done but not easily.
