I would not suggest driving hours out of your way to visit the Gorge, but it certainly is worth a visit as part of a total travel plan. The structure is impressive and the visitor's center offers beautiful overlooks of the north-flowing river in Fayetteville.

We did not spend too much time here but enjoyed the drive and the views. Everything is unspoiled and seems almost undiscovered (thank G-d). There are some nice hikes along the way and some waterfalls to explore as well.

I have stopped here every time I travel through the area. The views are stunning and the bridge is a sight to behold. There are picnic areas and restrooms available. You do have to walk a little bit, but it is well worth it.

We hiked Long Point Trail. The trail was well-defined with a few climbs. There is one lookout that gives an amazing view of the bridge.

Raised in the area of the gorge, and still look in amazement. This area is beautiful and is so stunning in fall. This area offered lots of hiking, fishing and rafting.

This spot is easily missed as it is one way in and one way out and just off the beaten path. Don't miss it. Well worth the drive and effort. We spent hours here and had lunch along the river, looking at the river, falls...More

Stopped here spur of the moment while on way south. Beautiful view of River Gorge and of bridge. Exhibit area was very interesting and showed a lot about local history and geography. Well worth the time to stop and visit.

Try Chestnut Creek Campgrounds in Lansing WV. I'm pretty sure they have tent camping but not 100% sure
