Watoga State Park to Host Road Trek Rally at Riverside Campground Sept. 29 - Oct. 3
Watoga State Park in Pocahontas County will host a “Road Trek” camper rally at Riverside Campground from Monday, September 29 to Friday, October 3, 2003 .
“A Road Trek is a custom built camper constructed on a Dodge van or Chevy van chassis,” State Parks District Administrator Robert Beanblossom said. “These folks gather in a different state each year to see the sights, compare notes and enjoy each other's company. This year it's West Virginia 's turn.”
Events planned for the rally include a ride to Bald Knob on the Cass Scenic Railroad, a visit to the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Greenbank, and the opportunity to visit many of the other attractions in Pocahontas County, such as Droop Mountain Battlefield and Beartown state parks, Cranberry Glades, the falls of Hills Creek, the Greenbrier River Trail and Pearl Buck's birthplace.
“Watoga is holding 30 campsites at the Riverside Campground for the event, including all electric sites,” Beanblossom stated. “This will be a break from our usual routine at Riverside . Normally, we don't reserve campsites after Labor Day, but for a large event like this we made an exception.”
The Beaver Creek Campground will be available for other campers that require electric hookups as well as at least 20 non-electric campsites at the Riverside Campground during the event. The rally ends Friday morning, October 3, and routine camping will resume for the weekend.
