Smoke Hole Caverns

Smoke Hole Caverns magnificent formations are the result of millions of years of intricate processes and trillions of drops of mineral laden water. Water dripping and seeping through the limestone bedrock leaves trace mineral deposits that over millions of years creates the spectacular stalactites, stalagmites, and helectities, flowstone, columns and dazzling multi-colored formations that you will see in the West Virginia Underground. We are only 3 hours from Baltimore, Washington DC, Pittsburgh and Charleston, WV. We are worlds away - but close to home. Smoke Hole Resort is based 8 miles south of Petersburg, WV, on Highway 55 on the banks of the North Fork of the South Branch River. We are only 10 minutes North of Seneca Rocks on Rt 28/55. Directions
