Few private properties remain for sale, so near the center of the newly established New River Gorge National Park & Preserve. Though located near the very heart of the park, the property is fewer than 15 minutes from suburban Beckley, the largest city in southern West Virginia. The steep, wooded tract accommodates two potential homesites. At the front, a quarter-acre of less-sloping land includes a former historic home site-a relic of the community's ghost-town period-and includes a well, septic system, fieldstone walls, and a stone chimney. A second potential homesite at the upper property overlooks a five-mile panorama of the gorge from more than 200 feet above the river. Both sites afford unmatched views of the mountains. The property is located in one of the most popular outdoor recreation areas in the park, in which the park service is developing new recreational resources. The park manages five public campgrounds within five miles of Prince and is adding a sixth campground only two miles away. Backcountry camping is also permitted in the park over much of the area, notably along the river. Park officials have announced plans to open new recreational trails leading along the river and ascending into the local highlands. The tract is within 1,000 feet of the Art Moderne-styled Prince Depot, an active Amtrak station on the New York-Chicago line. Thousands of locals and visitors use the station annually, notably scouts who are visiting the Bechtel National Scout Preserve, home of the Summit, the National Jamboree site for the Boy Scouts of America, a drive of fewer than 10 miles from the property. Though upstream, the New River is renowned for its whitewater rafting, the river at Prince is relatively calm and a destination for warm water fishing and flatwater recreational pursuits such as kayaking, canoeing, and paddle-boarding. Trout streams cascade out of the highlands in every direction. Hunting is a popular pursuit in sections of the New River Gorge National Park and Preserve.

In 2020, Congress established the 70,000-acre park, though the National Park Service had managed the area as a "national river" since 1978. The designation has resulted in a revolutionary interest in the region as a destination for travel and residency. Articles in Time, Vogue, and USA Today over the last year have greatly accelerated interest in the area globally, as has television coverage by major networks. Time has since named the park one of the "World's 100 Greatest Places." Long a renowned destination for hiking, biking, rock-climbing, and whitewater rafting, the park has been attracting more than two million visitors annually in recent years. Officials had predicted an increase of more than 20 percent in visitation in its first year, though the increase appeared to be nearer 50 percent as of August 2021. Park officials are proceeding with the development of the central section of the park near Prince as outlined in the park's 2011 Development Plan. Planners are expanding accommodations at five public campgrounds near Prince and are adding a sixth within two miles. New recreat
