Steel Bridge Campground


Families will enjoy splashing or fishing in the cool water of Potts Creek, a stocked trout stream adjacent to this rustic campground. The campsites are unpaved and well-shaded. They are situated along a single dirt road that parallels the creek. Historic Paint Bank, Virginia is a scenic three mile drive from here.
