Cheat Lake, WV Offers Vacationers a Taste of the “Backwaters” With Military Lodging Near

Cheat Lake is a 1,730-acre man-made reservoir located in the northern part of Monongalia County, about 10 miles east of downtown Morgantown and West Virginia University’s Main Campus. Some areas of the lake are a perfect getaway with calm and shady waters where you can drop your anchor, turn on the radio, and crack open a cool drink. These areas are known by the locals as “the backwaters” and are the spot for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. And best yet, you can make lodging reservations for your adventure at Camp Dawson Billeting which is located just 30 miles north!
