West Virginia…Kentucky…Tennessee…here we are!
Our way south started with rain, which forced us to drive longer and further than planned.
Along this road we saw very nice spots as the Summersville Lake WV, Fayetville WV and the Dale Hollow Lake KY.
In Summersville we camped @Mountain Lake Camping which is close to the lake and has a reception building which gives a really nice feeling: warm and creative. Playground, swimming pool, live country music and open air cinema are some of the side offer for the evening.
Beside these offers, nice green places, without lights, enhance the experience of being immersed in the nature.
A stop in Fayetville is a must. It’s situated just few miles after the New Gorge Bridge, an impressive bridge which was for a while the longest arch-bridge in the world. Anyway, it holds now the third place.
Fayetteville, It’s a bit of an hippie town which is absolutely worth the halt, as well as a paradise for sport’s lovers.
We had lunch @ Cathedral Cafe which we absolutely suggest: great atmosphere, genuine food and it’s created and conducted by women! 🙂
Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Camping
Situated in the Dale Hollow Lake Park, on the Kentucky side, it’s a wide, quite and green spot where we found some relaxing time.
Dale Hollow Lake
Different trails open for bicycles, hikers and horses, lead the visitors to different sight-seen points over the Dale Hollow Lake. We suggest the Eagle Point Trail, with the beautiful sight of Trooper Island.
