It appears that Yokum's Campground (teepees, cabins, tenting) is located at #1.
Seneca Shadows Campground is located at #2.

I have been to Seneca Rocks but not to Yokum's.


It appears that Yokum's has rooms above the store located at the corner (3 in blue) next to
Harper's Old Country Store. Seneca Shadow Campground may have a back entrance foot path from the intersection.
Yokum's Motel, indoor pool and restaurant are up the road one mile north of Seneca Rocks.
See later post.

camping is allowed in the surrounding Monongahela National Forrest outside

The intersection of Rt 28/Rt 33/Rt 55 is familiar to me.

But where is the
Princess Snowbird Campground ?
A search on the phone number 304-567-2351 makes me conclude that it is
another name for Yokum's.

Quote at bottom of the page:
"Princess Snowbird
Come visit our Princess Snowbird Campground nestled along the Seneca
Creek. Stay in a Tipi in our Indian Village. Facing the magestic view of the
Seneca Rocks, the legend tells us that Princess Snowbird climbed to the
top and the brave who followed her there became the chief of her tribe.

Enjoy history along with a modern pavilion, charcoal grills for cooking and an
open pit for campfires. Rustic camping as the Indians once enjoyed in our
area. We can handle families or large groups.
