Cave Springs Camping

As one of the largest campgrounds in the Jefferson National Forest, Cave Springs offers a small lake for swimming that is fed by a spring that originates in the mountains above in a cave.  A white sand beach is on the northern shore of the lake.  The day use area has 10 picnic units, each with a wooden table and grill located in a young pine forest.  This camping area features 41 camping units with tent pad, picnic table and parking spur. Spaces for recreational vehicles up to 22 feet are at each site.   There is also an amphitheater and a 1 acre lake for swimming.Hiking trails developed in the area include one that leads to the cave and stone overlook and loops back to the parking lot.  Another trail leads to the Stone Mountain Trail that follows the crest of the mountain for 14.3 miles and ends at Roaring Branch, near Appalachia, VA.
