Seneca Shadows


This is a very nice campground with great views of the rocks. A 10 minute walk takes you to the visitors center and the base of the rocks. A great swimming hole is located on the North Fork to the north of the visitors center. There is also an easy hiking trail to a viewing platform near the top of the rocks. There is running water, a bathhouse and showers. There are 40 walk-in tent sites, 3 group sites and 25 drive-in sites. Most of the walk-in tent sites are in an open field with great views of the rocks, but in full sun. The drive-in sites are in the woods.


Seneca Shadows is located just down the road from Seneca Rocks, north of Circleville, WV.
