Where are we going today?

Oldest of West Virginia's state forests, Seneca borders the beautiful Greenbrier River in Pocahontas County. The forest offers pioneer guest cabins; a four(4) acre lake for trout, bass and bluegill fishing; a small campground and 11,684 acres of lush woodlands for hiking, hunting or communing with nature. The lake and forest are named after the Indian tribe which once roamed the area. Seneca's large size and modest development make it a great place to find peace and solitude.

    We rented a cabin on the lake and had an amazing time. The cabins are rustic, meaning you need to build a fire in the oven to cook, and there is no electricity, lighting is gas. And the toilet is detached. However, we really loved this very old and charming cabin. What was extraordinary was the nature. We saw beavers in the lake. We saw deer. We saw huge turtles in the lake. There are canoes you can use for free as well. We spent 3 days here and our children, ages 13, 11 and 8 loved it.

    The campground here is pretty much perfect if you need no amenities, aside from a water pump and pit toilet. There is also firewood available for sale onsite and a ranger station a short drive away. The campsites are well maintained and generously sized, each with a nice fire pit and raked tent site. The azaleas were in bloom on our last visit in early June and the fireflies come out in force a couple of weeks later in the year. We stay here when we visit Cass Scenic Railway State Park and it is about a twenty minutes drive into Cass in the morning....Read More

    I love this place. No electricity, no phones just nature. The cabins are very clean and cozy.

My only complaint is that there are no reservations taken, so while you may have the place completely to yourself, you should still arrive early and have an alternate plan in the very unlikely event that the place is full.
