High Knob Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide

"With its small size, seclusion, absence of RV hookups, and small swimming hole located off by itself in the Clinch Ranger District of the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests, remote High Knob Recreation Area is one of those amazing finds that you’ll almost want to keep to yourself. But tell your friends—you wouldn’t want to deprive them of the magnificent views from the lookout tower."

For car camping, this campground was very much off the beaten path...surprisingly it was pristine. I found a spot right by the creek, which provided a nice sound to fall asleep to. Close to the bathrooms, there's a short trail that meanders through the woods following the creek that my dog and I ran. It was very muddy and covered in roots in parts, and at the end there was a connector trail, but I had trouble finding it.
