Mount Rogers National Recreation Area consists of three distinct regions. The west end includes the famous Virginia Creeper Trail, outstanding trout fishing in Whitetop Laurel, and picturesque Beartree Lake. The NRA's largest campground, Beartree, is a great family campground and close to all west end activities. Damascus, the friendliest town on the Appalachian Trail, is known as a trail hub for the four major trails that wind through: Virginia Creeper, Appalachian, Iron Mountain, and Daniel Boone Heritage.
