    A nice campground that we fell in love with is Canaan Vally State Camp groung located on Route 32 between Harman WV and Davis, WV. Canaan has a very clean campground with (shower and flush toilets) and complete hookups but more important it has beautiful hiking trails and scenic views plus a near Lodge with golf, swimming and restuarant or just a place to relax. And a big plus is the very friendly staff at the campground and Lodge.

    Try a stretch of The Potomac known as The Trough, north of Moorefield. Put-in at Old Fields, and fish for an assortment of panfish. The only 'serious' rapid is a simple Class 2 near the railroad bridge just before entering the canyon. Just stay way to the right as soon as you see the bridge. There are several camping sites within The Trough. The best times to go are Spring weekdays, when waters are up, birds and fish are active, and fewer campers on the shorelines. There are 3 possible take-outs for a single overnight trip, including the exit of The Trough, very close to a small local outfitter (canoes and shuttle available), a WV DNR access area 2 miles below, and another DNR access area by the bridge just west of Romney. The latter two take-outs can extend your trip on Day 2, but camping is best inside The Trough valley.
