Panther State Forest
This region, steeped in coal-mining culture, is characterized by deep and narrow hollows bottomed with swift creeks and topped with hills rising above. These hills make up in steepness for what they lack in height, compared to more lofty places in the Mountain State. A small, quiet, and never-filled campground is located in one of the few level locales in the forest. From here you can enjoy many of the natural and man-made features that Panther State Forest offers. The campground is located at the confluence of Panther Creek and Crane Branch in a wooded flat. The six campsites are strung out next to Panther Creek. Overhead, a forest of beech, hemlock, sycamore, and yellow birch provide seasonal shade. The understory is mossy beneath the trees and grassy in adjacent open areas.
