Stony Fork Cabin

George Washington & Jefferson National Forest

Stony Fork Cabin is a cozy one-bedroom hideaway with most of the comforts of home. Visitors can hike, mountain bike, explore the many nearby creeks, or simply relax on the cabin's private patio.

The cabin is located within the Stony Fork Campground along the Big Walker Mountain Scenic Byway. The Appalachian Trail, Seven Sisters Trail, and stocked fishing streams are all within a close proximity, and the site is easily accessed from I-77.

The 900 square foot log cabin has oak hardwood floors, a kitchen, full bathroom, and a living and dining area. It sleeps up to four guests with two twin beds and a sleeper sofa.

Cabin amenities include a private patio, cookware and utensils, a toaster, oven, refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Behind the cabin is a picnic table and campfire ring with grate.

Electricity and drinking water is included, but the cabin does not have air conditioning. Campers are asked to bring a flashlight, pillows, sheets, blankets, food, trash bags, bath towels, dishwashing detergent, firewood, a first aid kit and charcoal for the grill.
