This year, we decided to camp out over Easter Weekend, and celebrate the time as a family. We headed over to Cooper’s Rock in West Virginia. This picture is from the day we arrived. After this day, it rained the rest of the time. We had two shelters set up, with walls to cook and eat in. We sleep in the camper, but cook and eat outside. We cooked meals over the fire (between rain showers), Hiked in rain gear, did geocaching. Cooper’s Rock is a nice area. There is a 25 spot campground, picnic area, several miles of trails, and an overlook. This campground is best suited to tents and smaller rigs. We are in what is technically a pull through, but we had to back out of it because it was too tight to pull through.
We were on several trails in the park. Some of the trails are wide and easy, while others are very rocky. Brandon, our three year old, had a little trouble with some of the rocks, but was able to hike about 3 miles before needing carrying assistance.
Overall, this trip was enjoyable despite the rain. I recommend this area as a good place for a family camping trip, with a nice campground, good hiking, nice play areas for kids, and a nice picnic area.
