It was a pleasant 197 mile drive From Elkins to Beech Fork State Park, just south of Huntington, WV - at least until the last six miles which was a harrowing drive on a very narrow two-lane with very low overhanging tree limbs. Our spring-mounted radio antenna got a lot of exercise but luckily nothing was damaged, I don't think?

The state park itself is very nice and big-rig friendly, at least in the 49-site full hookup area we are in. The sites are of good size and we have 50 amps and good water pressure as well. The park has over 280 sites total, some of them just electric and some with nothing. We had an easy shot to the satellite but have no Verizon signal at all and the campground has no Wi-Fi as well.

We did absolutely nothing while here except relax and enjoy our surroundings. Luckily the weather cooperated and cooled off a bit so we could also enjoy some time outside.

We are headed for Lexington, KY tomorrow for a five-night stay at Kentucky Horse Park State Park, one of our favorite campgrounds.
