Mountain State Campground
217 Chestnutburg Rd
Fayetteville, WV 25840
This is the "camping only" portion of the Self Rescue class
. There are 7 spots available for camping the weekend of Bridge Day. I'm told this is a serious, serious
When Bridge Day arrives, more than 200,000 people converge over the course of the day [Saturday] to take part the day-long festival. BASE jumpers parachute off the New River Gorge Bridge diving 876-feet into the New River Gorge below. Rapellers descend on ropes like caterpillars beneath the mighty bridge. More than 200 vendors provide delicious foods and fantastic entertainment!http://www.wvbridgeday.com/
We'll be camping Friday and Saturday night at Mountain State Campground in Fayetteville. Attend Bridge Day on Saturday and then Sunday join the self-rescue class climbers for a day of climbing around the New! Beginners welcome to come climb with us, but you'll need climbing gear. Otherwise we could have another Unscripted Day-o-Fun (hiking, white water rafting, etc).
$32.75 per person for two nights camping.
It's a five hour drive down to Fayetteville, so we should plan to leave mid afternoon Friday. Probably won't get back into DC until late Sunday.
