Wanderlust Waypoints: Cabwaylingo is situated in the Allegheny Plateau of the Appalachian mountain range right on the border of West Virginia and Kentucky. With 172 acres of mountain wilds, this immense property offers completely flat, well-maintained sites with access to four-wheeling, hiking trails, fishing, and every other nature activity you could want.
Cabwaylingo in historic Dingess (lol), WV is right up the road from Cabwaylingo State Forest and is just a short drive away from town. You’ll be secluded in the wilderness with only other nomads to share it with but close enough to get all your groceries and supplies.
Cabwaylingo currently offers 5 powered sites for rigs of every shape and size and up to a dozen more capable of boondocking. We will be continually adding more sites throughout the property as time allows, so we’re always growing. 170+ acres can hold a lot of nomads so we can’t wait to get even more sites prepped. We also have cozy cabins and cottages available for rent!
Our sites are flat, level and well-maintained… which is frankly amazing to find anywhere in West Virginia let alone in the Appalachian mountains. We also have 15-amp power available for a small number of sites and water available for everyone to fill up tanks and wash the dog.
To provide a safe place and a secure environment for all our guests and families, we require some paperwork and we run a background check on anyone staying on-site overnight.
This location is in it infancy and currently has a limited selection of automotive tools. We will be expanding the tool offerings as we add additional facilities. If you have your own tools and just need a place to do the work without all the judgey looks, we’ve got you covered!
We’re about 20 minutes from everywhere you’ll need to get wood, screws, tools, bandages, and everything else for your build.
Learning about nature is just a few minutes away. Cabwaylingo State Forest is a beautiful destination to relax and unwind. The forest, like our location name, gets its unique name from the four surrounding counties: (Cab)el, (Way)ne, (Lin)coln and Min(go).
Chief Logan State Park is a 4,000-acre haven with lodging, conference facilities, campgrounds, hiking trails and a variety of outdoor activities and attractions. Chief Logan State Park is one of the most visited facilities in the West Virginia State Parks System.
Named after Wallace J. Williamson, the son of Benjamin Williamson who once owned all the land that is now known as the City of Williamson, the Old Hospital on College Hill offers historic tours daily by appointment.

Powersport enthusiasts will love the Hatfield & McCoy trails! ATV, UTV, ORV (such as Jeeps), and dirt bike riders will find nearly 100 miles of new trails to explore, plenty of parking for trucks and trailers and a trailhead facility with trail permits and Hatfield-McCoy Trails merchandise for sale.
Handed down for generations, the recipe used to make Hatfield & McCoy Moonshine is as authentic and original as the mountains and streams that bear the family names. The original recipe belongs to Devil Anse Hatfield and is currently produced in small, handmade batches, six days a week, in the micro-distillery in Gilbert, West Virginia, on original Hatfield land.
