A letterbox was planted in Staunton River State Park in Scottsburg, VA, on October 10, 2002, by mlgainey. The closest town is Scottsburg, and the county that you could say Scottsburg is in (if Virginia did its counties like the rest of the country) is Halifax. The largest cities to Scottsburg are South Boston and Danville.

On weekdays, park admission is $2. On weekends and holidays, it is $3.

Because this box is an orphan, please drop mlgainey a note about its condition at mlgainey@yahoo.com. This box does not contain a pencil.

Once inside the park, park in the lot near the playgrounds, the pool, and the tennis courts.

Take the Tutelo Trail.

At the picinic area, walk toward the shelter.

Walk behind the shelter.

Pick up the River Bank Trail.

At the bottom of the first small hill that you walk down are areas of fallen trees on both sides of the trail.

The box is hidden in the fallen tree closest to the path on the right side of the trail. The box is covered with bark inside the tree. Please recover with bark.

If desired, continue on the River Bank Trail for a long, long time to reach the Black Crappie box. Or return to the parking lot and either walk or drive on the main road to the entrances to Captain Staunton's Trail, which are off the main road across from the tennis courts/playground/pool.
