VA Upper Stewarts Creek WMA
Marker Description: Upper Stewarts Creek WMA

Native brook trout fishing is best in the upper section with nice plunge pools but it is quite a lot of steep hiking, hard to get to the fish so not the pressure you have below.

FREE Camping up to 14 nights on Stewarts Creek WMA


The area is located about seven miles southeast of Galax, just south of the Blue Ridge Parkway. To reach the upper parking area, take the Blue Ridge Parkway and turn south on state route 715, then left on Route 975 to its end. The lower parking lot can be conveniently reached from Interstate 77, exiting at State Route 620. Go northwest on Route 620, turn left on Route 696, then turn right onto Route 795. Department Trailblazer signs indicate the correct route to both parking areas. Consult the map for detail.
