Moncove lake State Park
Moncove Lake lies at the most southeastern edge of West Virginia’s ridge and valley country, in the Sweet Springs Valley. In 1959, Devils Creek was dammed to make this mountain impoundment, which provides 144 acres of clear water ready for anglers and small boaters. Middle Mountain and Cove Mountain form scenic bastions overlooking Moncove Lake. Add a little development and a campground with one loop especially suited to tent camping and you have a true recreation destination. Things don ’t get hopping at Moncove Lake until Memorial Day, when the campers really roll in, not only to enjoy the lake, but also the new swimming pool. The pool is set on the shores of Moncove Lake, offering a great view with all the conveniences of swimming in a man-made environment. This is an easy-going park where relaxing, maybe watching a bobber at the end of your fishing line, is the most popular pastime. However, there are other attractions, such as the Greenbrier River and the Greenbrier River Rail Trail, to lure hikers, mountain bikers, and paddlers.
