Babcock Camping

Twenty-miles south of West Virginia’s iconic New River Gorge Bridge, Babcock State Park offers its guests 4,127 acres of serene, yet rugged beauty. A fast flowing trout stream winds through a boulder-strewn canyon. The park is most known for the Glade Creek Grist Mill, a fully functional replica of the original Cooper’s Mill, located nearby. Other attractions include recreational activities like hiking, fishing and boating.
