Camp Creek and Princeton

Relax and enjoy nature at your own pace during any season at Camp Creek State Park. In addition, it is close to the town of Princeton, a bustling community rich in history.


  • Luxurious Relaxation & Arts Appreciation
  • Conveniently located two miles from Interstate 77, Camp Creek State Park is secluded and relaxing. The main attraction? Two beautiful waterfalls: Mash Fork Falls and Campbell Falls. There’s also an abundance of campsites, 35 miles of trails perfect for hiking, biking and horseback riding, seven miles of seasonally stocked trout streams for fishing, and almost 6,000 acres of lush forest waiting to be explored.

  • Before making your way to Princeton, arrange a private tour of Lake Shawnee Abandoned Amusement Park! But this grassy field wasn’t always home to a carnival; learn all about this area’s restless past, from the tragic, bloody history of the Clay family to the unfortunate, fatal accidents that led to the amusement park’s closure.

  • Princeton has rich railroad history and a growing art scene. Visit the Princeton Railroad Museum, catch a show at the Chuck Mathena Center or pick up works by West Virginia artists at the RiffRaff Arts Collective.
