Meadow Branch

Meadow Branch

With 322 square miles in Berkeley County, there is a lot of open space to enjoy the outdoors. Activities include hiking in the 23,000 acres of Sleepy Creek Wildlife Management Area or, closer in town, on the 137 acres at Poor House Farm Park. New to hiking? Check out this great info-article….The Beginner’s Guide to Hiking.

For power walking or bike riding, you have the option of the Route 9 path which follows the busy thoroughfare from Martinsburg to the Charles Town/Ranson area. While the southern portion of the trail is fairly flat, the northern half is somewhat hilly. Stops along the way highlight points of interest.

Hunting abounds in Sleep Creek WMA or at Butler Farms, a private farm open for reservations.  

Fishing in a stocked pond can be found at Zetts Fishing Lakes, or in one of the many streams and creeks stocked by the DNR.

It you rather just watch, then birding is enjoyed at Staufers Marsh Nature Preserve or Yaunkauer Nature Preserve, both managed by the Potomac Audubon Society. There is also seasonal bird watching at Sleepy Creek WMA.

Kayaking and Canoe rental for use on the Potomac or streams is available.

Brochures for all these sites or activities are available for download above or at the Visitors Center. 

Sampling of Fairs and Festivals


Arts and Theatre

The Apollo Civic Theatre has been a Martinsburg cultural landmark since 1913. The famed architect Chappie Kent, who designed the Knickerbocker Theater in Washington, D.C., also designed the Apollo. The Apollo features six main stage productions and hosts community and seasonal events throughout the year.   304-263-6766


Wonderment Puppet Theater, a full time, year round puppet theater for families with several original shows a year. It has an exhibit hall, a puppetry store, and a personal studio for creating future shows. 304-260-9382

Permanent puppet theaters have been popular and numerous for decades overseas, but in the United States only about 40 full time puppet theaters exist. Wonderment Puppet Theater is the only existing one in West Virginia.   304-260-9382


Berkeley Art Works, a project of the Berkeley Arts Council, is the realization of the long-held dream of the local arts community: to have a community-based arts facility that supports local and regional artists, brings quality arts experiences for the members of the public, and provides a wide range of arts learning experiences for local residents, artists and artisans. Holding many exhibits and classes throughout the year, as well as the Holiday Sale, Berkeley Art Works is a chance to see a wide variety of local talent.  304-620-7277



Spa Treatment

After a busy day hiking, attending a festival or enjoying some great cuisine, what can be more relaxing than a spa treatment. Whether it is a couples massage at Sleepy Creek Spa at The Woods or a total immersion experience in a salt cave at Touch of Grace, you will leave with your spirits renewed!

Enjoy Botanical, Aromatherapy, and Natural Products at Serenity Day Spa or refresh, recover, and rejuvenate at Personal Reflections Day Spa.


Local Distillery

Be sure to take a moonshine and bourbon tour on Fridays and Saturdays (11-4) at the first grain-to-glass craft distillery in Martinsburg since prohibition. Founded in December of 2013, Black Draft Distillery produces whiskey and bourbon, using unique and all natural ingredients sourced less than ten miles away. Try seasonal flavors at this locally owned distillery!      540-686-0100


Shopping-Distinctly West Virginia


While visiting our area, be sure to stop by some stores that are "distinctly West Virginia."

West Virginia Glass Outlet at 148 N. Queen Street has a superb collection hand-blown glass, an art process that has been in West Virginia for many generations. Whether it be Fenton Art Glass, Blenko Glass, Appalachian Glass, Dying Art Glass, Cameo Glass, Marble King or others, this shop is a visual treat!


Defluris Fine Chocolates, located just down the street from the glass shop, is a family operation that’s owned, loved, and tended daily by veteran chocolatiers. Using pure, quality ingredients in time-perfected recipes, the confections are made on the premises using traditional artisan candymaking techniques. We can't promise there are no calories!


Looking for some eastern panhandle wine? Don't miss Cox Juice, a product of the Cox Family Winery, where their vines are soaking up all that West Virginia has to offer in her seasonal changes; from warm summers to cold winters. All of which can make for a wonderful vintage! Wines are available at local stores and at Taylor's Farm Market.
