Dunlow - Cabwaylingo State Forest

4279 Cabwaylingo Park Road

Cabwaylingo State Forest is located on 8,123 heavily forested acres in the heart of Southern West Virginia in Wayne County. Built largely in the 1930's, the forest gets its unique name from the four surrounding counties:CABell, WAYne, LINcoln, MinGO.

Cabwaylingo State Forest is steeped in the history of the Civilian Conservation Corps of the 1930's and 1940's. The CCC camps including Cabwaylingo, were established to rebuild forested acres which in turn marks the beginnings of the West Virginia State Park system.

Best place EVER to spend time getting back to your roots. Layed back, quiet atmosphere of a lush and beautiful forest where you and your loved ones can disconnect from the hustle and bustle of ordinary, everyday life and get connected to nature by taking a jogging trail through the forest, or hike to one of the many covered log pavilions with gorgeous stone fireplaces. Fishing, swimming, camping sites, cabins, games are also available

TAKE YOUR OWN LINEN! We started in cabin 8, Pubic hair in the bed sheets and stained towels. What once was white is now dingy brown. Slept on air mattress that night. Decided the next morning to go buy bed sheets and while stripping the bed a SNAKE fell on my foot!! Moved to cabin 11 Much cleaner cabin, (towels and bed sheets still gross)

My kids went for 4H camp. They loved except that the pool was closed.
