Camp Bartow

Location and Access

Camp Bartow is located in Pocahontas County. We are currently fundraising and developing a plan for interpretation, parking and access. There are currently no signs marking the parking area or trailhead. The property is a “work-in-progress” and we are planning to make it open and accessible to the public in the summer of 2018.

Historical Site Protected

Last fall, WVLT purchased a historic Civil War site in Pocahontas County, known as Camp Bartow. The property was the scene of the Battle of Greenbrier River in October 1861. The 14-acre property lies in the heart of the battlefield and was a campground of the 31st Virginia Infantry. As part of the first campaign of the Civil War, the battle proved instrumental in the creation of West Virginia in 1863.
