Important Notices

COVID-19 & the VBWT: Be Safe While OutdoorsDGIF encourages you to be safe while outdoors. Before heading out, first check with individual sites on the Virginia Bird & Wildlife Trail to find out whether they are still open to the public. Information regarding closures is typically posted on a site's own website. Be advised that some sites, even if still open, may have certain public facilities closed during this time. If a site is still open, maintain CDC social distancing guidelines while enjoying the outdoors.

Description

Elevation: 2367 ft.
The East Fork Stony Fork Creek Campground provides a good base to explore this area. In addition to having camping and parking sites, it also provides access to the Seven Sisters Trail, which follows East Fork Stony Fork Creek. The main attraction to the area is the large number of mature white pines found along the creek and next to Rt. 717, just northeast of the Seven Sisters Trailhead. These pines provide habitat for Blackburnian warbler. Other species more typical of mid-elevation, mixed deciduous forests frequent the campground and surrounding habitat.

Directions

From the Seven Sisters Trailhead on Rt. 717 continue northeast on Rt. 717 for 3.3 miles to the sign on the left. There are two additional pullouts along Rt. 717 in the 2.6 miles between the campground and the Seven Sister Trailhead.
