The GW Jeep Site is an archaeological site which spans the border between Pocahontas County, West Virginia, and Highland County, Virginia. The site is located in two national forests; the West Virginia portion is within the Monongahela National Forest, while the Virginia portion is within the George Washington National Forest. A Native American camp where stone tools were made was located at the site between 1,000 and 5,000 years ago. The site was named after a Jeep owned by the George Washington National Forest, which was in the area when forest employees first noted the site.[2]

The site was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 23, 1993.[1]
