The water, land, and history of the New River Gorge await you. A name like Army Camp leads you to believe this location has been camped on for some time. During World War II, the Army Corps of Engineers built bridges over the New River for training. Many of the corps members were probably here against their will, but you will find no one of that sentiment today. Army Camp is a fine campground run by the National Park Service. It was remodeled and opened for business in spring of 1999. From here, the trails of Glades Creek, the restored railroad town of Thurmond with its trails, and the water pursuits of the New River are all nearby. Throw in a little auto touring and you have a great outing in hand.

A nice, clean campground, very quiet. Nice beach where one can watch whitewater rafters slip by during season. No electric available onsite, but comfortable and clean toilet. Well managed tent sites. Out of the way, and worth the trip. Spectacular wildflowers during spring season. Entry road a bit narrow, but little traffic, so if you take your time, there's no problem. Bring your own firewood. Very relaxing.
