GEORGE WASHINGTON AND JEFFERSON NATIONAL FOREST
The recreation program in George Washington Forest offers one of the greatest concentrations of recreation opportunities in the country. Extending across the entire western part of Virginia and the eastern part of West Virginia, the forest is the largest publicly-owned land-base for recreation in the eastern United States. Developed recreation opportunities are offered at over 100 sites in the forest. These opportunities vary from minimally-developed sites including picnic areas, scenic overlooks, observation points and small non-fee campgrounds, to highly developed recreation complexes, camping spurs with utility hookups and warm showers. Many of the developed recreation areas are open Memorial Day through Labor Day.
