The Trout Pond Recreation Area is a beautiful area of lakes, streams, mountains, and sinkholes, all tucked away in the quiet wilds of West Virginia. Newly renovated, this recreation area offers opportunities for camping, fishing, boating, swimming, and hiking. Rockcliff Lake, a 17-acre man-made lake, has a swimming beach with warm showers and is open for canoes and small boats with electric motors. The lake is well stocked with trout. Reminder: A West Virginia fishing license is required to fish in the lake. There is a trail around the lake and other hiking trails nearby. The campground includes 50 sites, each with a tent pad, picnic table, lantern post, and grill. Drinking water, flush toilets, warm showers, and a disposal station are also available. The day-use area has 30 individual sites and two group picnic areas.
