Welcome to Craig County

Fall Festival - Oct 9, 2021 9 to 5

COVID-19 UPDATES

The latest general information on the Coronvirus (COVID-19) is available HERE!

 

The New Castle Town Park is on

Rt. 311 across from Bibo’s Pizzeria. It’s

a couple blocks from the corner of Rt.

42 and Rt. 311. Along with photo ops

with our unique LOVEWORKS, the park

offers a new basketball court, picnic

shelter, and play area for young

children.

 

Fifty-two percent of Craig County

 

is in Jefferson National Forest. We

 

have two access points to the

 

Appalachian Trail, three different

 

Virginia Scenic Byways,

 

and pristine views of farmland and

 

mountains. Quaint family

 

cemeteries, one-hundred year old

 

churches, the Eastern Continental

 

Divide, and Fenwick Mines

 

Recreation Area are just a few of

 

the features that make Craig

 

County a unique destination.

 

Gliders soaring overhead,

 

scenic overlooks on Rt. 42 & 311,

 

and the Craig County Fall Festival

 

on the 2nd Saturday of every

 

October. Want more? A swinging

 

bridge inside a restaurant, a deli

 

next to a catfish pond, and one of

 

the best jeep trails on the east

 

coast. Indeed, your next adventure

 

is just around the bend in Craig

 

County.  

 

  We hope you enjoy

 

your visit!

 

 

Fenwick Mines offers easy

walking trails, fishing ponds, and

diverse flora and fauna. A large

picnic shelter is available for

rental. Designated by the Forest

Service as a Day Use Area, it is

about a ten minute drive from

New Castle down Rt. 615.
