Imagine a setting of 300 sprawling acres nestled in glorious mountain scenery to explore, and a comfortable private cabin to stay the night. After 25 years in business, West Branch Angler Resort has come to be known as the Premier Outdoor Destination in the East.
Fishing is the name of the game here.

Various courses and lessons are available to take almost any angler to the next level.
Back on dry land, satisfy your hunger at the on-site River Run Restaurant, a local favorite known for its warm atmosphere and distinctive menu.
