Located in the rugged hills near West Virginia’s southern border with Virginia and Kentucky, Panther offers a small campground in heavily wooded surroundings. Hiking trails to scenic overlooks, trout fishing, picnicking, swimming and hunting are featured at the WMA.
An improved rustic campground is located beside the beautiful, trout-stocked Panther Creek. All six sites have electrical hook-up, fireplace, and picnic table. Pit toilets and a well hand-pump are conveniently located for campers to use.
Surrounded by beautiful mountains, the swimming pool provides an ideal spot to cool off and relax from the summer heat.
Picnic areas vary from areas with playgrounds, shelters, volleyball court, grills, picnic tables, and hand-pumps to picnic areas off by themselves with a fireplace and picnic table.
The WMA offers excellent opportunities for hunting and fishing. During the spring months, a four-mile section of Panther Creek within the WMA is stocked with trout. Excellent deer, turkey, squirrel, and grouse hunting is permitted in season on the area. Hunting is not permitted in designated safety zones.
Miles of connecting trails and unimproved roads are open for hikers and walkers.
