A no-frills area where you can pitch a tent in the shadow of towering hemlocks and even more towering mountain ridges. Activities at the North Creek Campground are geared toward this rich natural setting. Trout fishing from your tent site or somewhere downstream is an obvious choice for anyone with the inkling to test his or her angling abilities against stocked and native species. Fly fishermen will especially enjoy the special regulation area upstream from the campground where only artificial lures can be used. There are no shortage of hiking and mountain biking opportunities here in the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests. Mountain bikers will find even more opportunities to pedal through the area by tackling the 2.6-mile Whitetail loop Trail or heading out on neighboring forest development roads that loop across Pine, Thomas, and Wildcat Mountains.
