“Not for Everyone, But One of Most Relaxing Stays!” 5 of 5 stars

Seneca State Forest

Attraction details
Owner description: Oldest of West Virginia's state forests, Seneca borders the beautiful Greenbrier River in Pocahontas County. The forest offers pioneer guest cabins; four(4) acre lake for trout, bass and bluegill fishing; small campground and 11,684 acres of lush woodlands for hiking, hunting or communing with nature. The lake and forest are named after the Indian tribe which once roamed the area. Seneca's large size and modest development make it a great place to find peace and solitude.

“Not for Everyone, But One of Most Relaxing Stays!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Not for everyone, but one of the most relaxing stays you will ever have. Primitive Cabins (Propane Refrigerator and lights, wood stove, no electricity, modern outhouse). Seneca borders the beautiful Greenbrier River in Pocahontas County. Charming wooden cabin, plenty of supplied firewood, very friendly staff. No electricity, cell phones or Internet make for an extremely relaxing getaway.

Rustic cabins, with primitive conditions-perfect, quiet private get-away. Has a rowingboat for each cabin. Easy access to the Greenbrier Hike and Bike Trail. Almost Heaven...

“Beautiful rustic cabins”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2011

I hesitate to write this review lest this secret gem of a state park become too widely known. The really fun part are the pioneer cabins! Clean, well appointed and fun to figure out. Not a fan of the vault toilets but hey, beats a log!
