The Steel Bridge Recreation Area is located adjacent to Potts Creek in Northern Craig County. The area features camping and picnicing facilities and is just north of the Shawvers Run Wilderness Area. Potts Creek is an excellent stream for trout fishing. The cool water cascading over river rocks is also very inviting to those looking to cool off on a hot summer day. From Interstate 81, take Exit 141 onto SR 419 North to SR 311 North thru New Castle to Paint Bank. Take SR 18 (right) for 3.5 miles to campground on Potts Creek. All roads are paved. Total driving distance from I81 is 42 miles; estimated driving time is 1 hour. From Covington, take SR 18 to site on left. There are 20 campsites, each with gravel parking, picnic table, fireplace, lantern post and tent pad. Recreational vehicles up to 16 ft can be accommodated.
