NEW DIRECTIONS TO LITTLE BENNETT PARK - please be aware that the Rte 270 exit to Clarksburg has been “re-aligned,” it now puts you onto Stringtown Rd, not Clarksburg Rd.
Route 270 North
Exit 18 Clarksburg/Bodys exit (Route 121)
coming off the exit ramp bear right (to Clarksburg)
(Note: the new exit alignment now puts you onto Stringtown Road.)
Go to the 2nd traffic light and turn left onto
Rte 355 (north)
Go to first traffic light and turn right onto
Continue on Clarksburg Road for about two miles.
At the bottom of a big dip, just past the small cement bridge, on the right is a (un-marked) small parking area.
Turn right onto the gravel road that goes into/past the parking area immediately after the bridge.
NOTE: Before you get to the parking area you want, there is now a new additional Park parking lot (with a sign) on Clarksburg Road. Continue on past that new lot, to the lot with the Little Bennet Park sign.
After you pull into the Little Bennett campground parking lot you will see a
closed gate in front of you. (Gate will be unlocked by 3:00 PM on Friday.)
Open the gate, drive through and close the gate behind you. (DO NOT LOCK IT).
Follow the road for about 1 mile up to the primitive campground. Do not
confuse the Schoolhouse by the creek for our campsite -- bear to the left
and continue on up the hill.
Also new: If you want to pick up something in Clarksburg,
- there is a Quiznos on Stringtown Rd about a half a block further beyond the Rte 355 intersection; - there is a small general store and also a new small health food store on Rte 355, which you will pass on the right before you get to Clarksburg Rd.
