Three trips are scheduled daily: 10 AM, 1 PM and 4 PM.

The reservation may be canceled within 48 hours at no charge.
If rain occurs before the ride is scheduled to begin,

Your research/groundwork and postings are real service to these threads. I'm sure I speak for many in thanking you.

Reminds me of our days of being Wranglers at a Dude ranch in Milford...
Did that for 2 years... We rode to work, worked from 6am - 6 pm for $ 4.50 an hour...LOL and we used our own horses all day

I knew the names of ALL 80 head of horses at the Malibu Ranch...
Had to...

HB Was the lead.. It rode Drag But I had to run up and down the line keeping an eye on everyone..
Drag was really the harder of the 2 .... I had to talk to every horse up and down the line.. Not the people .

And some time I got to take out a hourly ride where it was just 2 people and I could take them on a 2 hour ride ..

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.


Seneca Shadows Campground LINK


From http://www.senecarocks.com/around-se...mping-lodging/
I quote:
Camping & Lodging

There are two commercial campgrounds in Seneca Rocks.While primitive
camping is allowed in the surrounding Monongahela National Forrest outside
the Spruce Knob/Seneca Rocks National Recreation Area, camping is not
allowed anywhere on the rocks side of the North Fork River.


Seneca Shadows -LINK this is the federally owned campground located on the hill overlooking the town of Seneca Rocks. It has all the amenities in addition to a spectacular view of the rocks. The entrance is located about a mile south of Seneca Rocks on Rt. 33/28. They offer walk-in campsites, single/double vehicle drive in sites w/wo electrical hookups, and drive in-group sites (with hookups). Shower and bathroom facilities are provided on site. Reservations are recommended for holiday weekends. For reservations call 1-877-444-6777.


Princess Snowbird Campground - This is a drive in camping area directly across the road from the rocks. Cabins are also available along with bathrooms and shower facilities. For reservations call 304-567-2351.


Yokum’s Vacationland Campground - This campground is located about a half mile north of Seneca Rocks on Rt. 28/55. Showers and pavilions are available. To make reservations call 800-772-8342 or visit yokum.com

Appalachian Cabins and Motel
– Located 3 miles north of Seneca on rte. 28/55. While not in the middle of downtown Seneca Rocks this is a convenient location that is well kept and competitively priced. For reservations call 304-567-7070.


Harman's North Fork Cabins - Located 5 miles north of Seneca, Harman's North Fork Cabins offers cabins away from the road. These cabins sit on a mile of privately managed, catch and release trout stream. wvlogcabins.com


Yokum’s Motel - located in the heart of downtown Seneca Rocks and the newest of all the rooms in the areas. Call 304 567-2626 or 800-772-8342 and specify that you want to stay above the store. You'll also want to specify smoking or non-smoking. Visit yokum.com


Yokum’s Motel/Cabins - located about half a mile north of Seneca Rocks on Rt. 28/55. Call 800-772-8342 for reservations or visit yokum.com

=====

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.
From:
http://wvweb.com/yokums/
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.

This sign is on Route28/55 one mile north of Seneca Rocks across the road from motel,
indoor pool and restaurant












Yokum's Vacation Land consists of:
Store and "motel" ( number of rooms ?) in one building.
Inside the store is a small area with a few booths where food is served (called Restaurant LINK).
Princess Snowbird Campground (cabins and teepees) across the road/river from the store.
Yokum's Stables
Yokum's Motel, Indoor Pool and Restaurant one mile north of Seneca Rocks

If one is not inclined toward camping or community living in a tepee or cabin,
reservations for the few available motel rooms should be made a.s.a.p.

Two hour rides?
Did that include Wallpack Center


Did they have rodeos in those days?

Yuppers that was the place ..
But when I wrangler there ,They didn't put on Rodeos..

There was always a few of Steve's(Owner) good friends that went on Pvt. hourly rides..

WallPack center was in NJ ...

The new owner in the article doesn't ring a bell...

The Ranch was at the DeadEnd ..My place was a few miles down the road..
