Head on over to Goose Point Recreation area and take a dip in the 3,000 acre Philpott Lake . If you like to fish, the bass are said to be large and hangry!

Rocky Knob Recreation Area is a great spot to stop that isn’t all that far from camp. If you feel like stretching your legs, there’s several great hikes leaving from the parking area and heading out into the wooded area shown above. You’ll stumble across some secluded water features if you explore the longer trails.

Still have time to kill and looking for another local can’t miss site? Stop by the Floyd Country Store on your way back into town. On the weekends, you can usually catch a live show of Old Timey music and a herd of flat footers scootin’ around. Don’t be a prude and join in the fun!
