Droop is an unincorporated community in Pocahontas County, West Virginia, in the Greenbrier River Valley.

The town is most famous for Droop Mountain Battlefield State Park, site of West Virginia's last significant Civil War battle. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) constructed the park's trails and buildings in the 1930s, as part of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal legislation. Today, a small museum on the park grounds houses Civil War artifacts and discusses the park's CCC history.[1] Bi-annually, the West Virginia Reenactors Association reenacts the Droop Mountain battle.[2]
