Welcome to Potts Creek Outfitters
In December 2004, the owners of The Depot Lodge wanted to create a viable, sustainable hunting environment for today’s outdoorsman. That vision of managed hunting grounds now extends to two states, Virginia and West Virginia.
Our experts in forestry and wildlife management have created a lush, inviting environment for expert hunters and novices alike. Our feed plots are full of the vegetation that draws wildlife, and we use clear cuts throughout the forest to enhance access and ensure success. With over 800 acres in Virginia and another 800 in West Virginia, you’ll find the adventure never ends. And for your comfort, hunting areas are no more than 3 to 4 miles from the friendly accommodations of The Depot Lodge.
