The Hike To This Little-Known West Virginia Waterfall Is Short And Sweet
Short hikes, especially with small children in tow, are essential ways to relax and unwind without devoting an entire day to a trail. At Camp Creek State Park & Forest, most people gravitate to the main waterfall (Campbell Falls) which is also a popular swimming hole at the state park. But there’s another waterfall that’s less crowded and the hike over to it is an enjoyable one mile in length.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Camp Creek State Park & Forest is located at 2390 Camp Creek Road, Camp Creek, WV, 25820. The one mile trail to Mash Fork Falls begins near the park headquarters. Another longer hiking option is located near the basketball court where a trail that connects to Mash Fork Trail begins. And lastly, you can always drive almost all of the way and walk a short distance to the waterfall.
