Last night we were unsure if we would spend a day in Lexington, Kentucky or keep travelling towards our destination in Maryland. This morning we decided to split the remaining distance into two easy days, each about 5 hours in length.
That brought us to Sutton, West Virginia, located in the heart of West Virginia’s Mountain Lakes Region. West Virginia has over 20,000 miles (that’s not a typo, 20,000 miles) of waterways: rivers, creeks, streams, etc.
The Army Corps of Engineers has built a number of dams in this area creating some beautiful lakes. Mountain lakes are unlike any other; lots of twists and turn, each vista more impressive than the last, especially when seen from the water. And West Virginia is known for it’s outdoor activities. Their Motto: West Virginia, Wild & Wonderful.
We are in one of the nicest KOA’s I’ve seen, called Flatwoods KOA. If you come here request a space in the woods. The sites are on tops of some hills and nicely integrated into the woodlands. Otherwise you’ll end up in a typical ‘open field’ RV park.
We were originally assigned a space in the ‘open field’ however when we went for a walk we found these terrific wooded sites. As soon as we arrived back at the RV I started packing up the RV while Mary Lynn called the office; 15 minutes later our RV was once again leveled, slides out, and connections made.
Definitely worth the time (and the small amount of effort). A shaded site with a beautiful breeze and a great view to boot.
Our agent is having an open house at our Maryland house that is up for sale. We plan to arrive there after the open house is completed so we’ll get to sleep late and enjoy a leisurely morning before driving about 5 hours.
