The Only Natural Lake In West Virginia, Trout Pond Is Slowly Sinking Out Of Sight
No one can characterize the state of West Virginia as a desert. We have so much water to enjoy throughout the state: creeks, rivers, reservoirs, waterfalls. But did you know that for all that water, there’s only one natural lake in the whole state? And it’s slowly disappearing from sight.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Did you get to see Trout Pond back when it was a larger lake? Did you realize how significantly it has shrunk in size since then? But thankfully Rockcliffe Lake is still a beautiful, vibrant spot. Definitely add it to your list of great camping/hiking/swimming spots in West Virginia!
