Trip Location Information for AB Site Leaders: Spencer, WV

This LibGuide is organized by trip location for use by current AB Site Leaders. Within each location tab, SL's will find ideas for activities to do and places to go with their trip group during free time.

Free Time Ideas

1) Fort Charles Lake (Free): Fork Charles Lake is located just outside of Spencer, WV and is one of the state's hidden gems for outdoor fun. Fork Charles Lake features an extensive trail system for hiking.

2) Curious Rock (Free): A table rock formation that has been intriguing West Virginians for years; the rock is either a natural formation or Native American totem.

3) George Washington’s Bathtub- Berkeley Springs State Park (Free): The only outdoor monument to presidential bathing is along the west side of Berkeley Springs State Park. A major spring can be seen bubbling up through the tub. An annual event celebrating George Washington's Bathtub is held in mid-March on the weekend nearest March 18, anniversary of Washington's first visit in 1748.
