Crumps Bottom is an unincorporated community in Summers County, West Virginia, United States. Crumps Bottom is located on the New River south of Hinton. Its post office [2] is closed. It was also known as the Mouth of Indian.

Crumps Bottom was settled in 1753 by Andrew Culbertson, the first English settler in the present Summers County. He established a working plantation with a lavish home. Crumps Botton was the site of the first post office in the area. The settlement was abandoned because of attacks by Native Americans.

The community is now a seasonal-access public area with camping and river access; it can be reached by one-lane roads off West Virginia Route 20.
