Holly River State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Many waterfalls and man-made facilities attract campers to the longest campground around. Over 80 campsites arestretched alongside Laurel Fork, before the waterway merges with Left Fork Holly River. The long camping area has fair, good, and great campsites. This is one place where you must scout the camping area and pick the campsite that suits you. Warning—there will be some RVs scattered in the campsites.

The oak, hickory, maple, and tulip tree forest has a light understory. Some campsites lie next to a steep hill to your left and are a little less than level. After that there are many campsites strung right along Laurel Fork. These well-shaded sites have a little rhododendron for added privacy."

Spent a weekend here in spring 2004 with Scout Troop 17 (Parkersburg, WV). There's a group campsite available, can place 10 tents +/-, cost is equal to 2 campsites. Trails are spectacular. I recommend Potato Knob Trail, and finding Shupe's Chute on the north fork of the Holly River! Many trails are easy to moderate, although there's several that require more than just casual conditioning. The waterfalls are all just super! See if you can find them all...
