Southern Gap Outdoor Offers Something For Everyone
High adventure or relax and unwind -- it's waiting for you at Southern Gap Outdoor Adventure! Nestled in the mountains of Southwestern Virginia and located at the trailhead for the Spearhead Trails Coal Canyon ATV/OHV/Mountain Bike Trail, we're a Good Sam Club campground with cabins, full hook-up pull-through RV sites and tent sites.
Overnight and day visitors have plenty of opportunities to enjoy easy access to ATV/OHV and mountain bike riding experiences on the Coal Canyon trail. We now offer ATV Side by Side Rentals, so be sure to check that out under our activities tab and in the Book Your Adventure section of our website! Elk viewing and guided elk tours are available seasonally. Archery tag is also available.
Other amenities, including all-season tubing and an ATV obstacle course will be added this fall.
The first five standard cabins constructed in phase one of our development are available for rent. Our standard cabins sleep 7-10 people. Our campground offers 19 full hook-up RV sites and primitive tent camping. A bathhouse further complements the campground, offering showers, a vending area, laundry and restrooms for the comfort of our guests.
A 7,500-square-foot visitor center is now under construction and when complete will offer interactive wildlife displays, an observation deck featuring panoramic views of Southwest Virginia’s beautiful mountain region and more when it opens later this year. The visitor center will also feature an artisan/heritage area to highlight area arts and crafts, a consignment area, gift shop and banquet/event room. It will also serve as a location for visitors to secure ATV permits to ride the Spearhead Trails, including Coal Canyon. The permits are currently available on site in our campground office.
