Trough General Store & Canoe Rentals


We are at the Mouth of the Trough and have snacks, drinks, bait, ice, canoes, t-shirts, shuttle service and more. A true general store! Park at our store and canoe back to your vehicle!

We are located here,
the mouth of the trough.

The Trough is a 6 mile long stretch of the South Branch of the Potomac River, north of Moorefield, West Virginia.  This forested canyon between river and sawmill ridges is home to bald eagles and abounds in native fish and wildlife.  With limited human access, the only access is by canoe or railroad.  A canoe trip through the trough offers excitement to those who love nature!


Take WV Route 50 from either east or west to Romney. Just west of Romney, turn south on South Branch River Road, 9 1/2 miles at Public Access #10.
