Stony Fork Campground, operated by the US Forest Service, is located in the foothills northwest of Wytheville, VA. It's a small, wooded campground with several streams rubbing through it. A quiet and pleasant spot, with access to hiking trails. Signs indicate that trout may be found in the streams.

We pulled into Stony Fork about 11 AM on a Sunday and had no problem finding a site. Since not all sites have water hookups, we backed into a site with a water faucet to fill our fresh water tank. We then continued on around the loop again and settled on site 11 - a little more open than most. It's a site with electric-only hookup and allows for satellite TV reception.

Date of visit: Oct 2015

There is one pull-through site, number 7, situated alongside one of the streams.

Sites 5 and 3 are among those sites without hookups - too bad, for they're among the nicest sites, bright and sunny.

Site 49.

There are several of these bridges on the campground loop road, designed to not wash away in a flash flood. Just narely visible beyond the bridge is site 47.

Sites 40 and 38.

Sites 18 and 17.

There are four of these small, clean bathhouses in the campground. They are heated and offer free hot showers.

Smokey's Retreat is a well-equipped two-room cabin that can be rented for $65 a night or $375 per week.

There's a one-mile nature trail that loops out from the campground. About halfway along it, it connects to the 5-mile Seven Sisters Trail.

Wouldn't it be interesting to know the history behind this old foundation located beside the trail?

A rather fascinating "tumor" we found on a tree. It was about three feet high.
