General Information

Description - The remote Warm Springs Ranger District is a great pleasure to visit. There are well-kept campgrounds, hiking trails, trout streams and tidy picnicking facilities and even a shooting range. There are campgrounds right off the road and campgrounds which one must hike a few miles in to reach. In addition, this ranger district is home to several dams which has left the area with wonderful fishing and recreational boating.

Recreation - Douthat State Park is north of Covington, Virginia off I-64 offering countless multi-use trails, a restaurant, fully equipped cabins, lakeside camping and a popular trout-stocked lake. Warm Springs Ranger District travels along the Virginia / West Virginia state line. In the District's northern area, it touches Monongahela National Forest, an equally beautiful and remote area.
