Family Camping and 4 Wheeling Trip to WVA – We are planning a fun family weekend of camping and 4 wheeling at Pinnacle Creek Campground in WVA, Friday,  July 3rd through Friday, July 10th. You can take your own camper or tent camp. There is also a bunk house or you can rent campers on site. You can come for the whole week or any part of the week. Bring your 4 Wheeler, if you have one and if you don’t there will be plenty of others there that will help with rides. It is a great place to just relax and take a rest. There is no cell or internet service but there is a phone in the campground where you can make calls out and receive emergency calls. There is no convenient place to buy groceries so you will need to bring everything with you that you will need for your time there. We will plan some meals together as a group and you will be on your own for some. There is a diner there in the campground that is open breakfast lunch and dinner and we will sometimes eat in a restaurant while out on the trails. Plan to bring snacks, water, etc for your family and to share as well.
