Watters Smith State Park does not have camping available.  However, the town of West Milford is opening up their large baseball field for tent camping on Friday night adjacent to their Municipal Building, 623 Liberty St, West Milford, WV 26451.  The site is 3.2 miles from the start area. 

The field complex has a single, unisex, outdoor restroom facility (no showers). The large municipal parking lot can also accommodate campers/RVs (no hookups).
