Directions to Helvetia:

There are two paved roads that lead to Helvetia. One comes in from the west off Rt. 20 south of Buckhannon at the West Virginia Wildlife Center and the other from the east off Rt. 250 in Mill Creek. If you are adventurous, the WV highway map shows other roads from Diana, Holly River Sate Park and Kumbrabow State Forest. These scenic back roads are negotiable by car but are much slower.

Cell phone coverage is virtually nonexistent in Helvetia. If you need to make a call while in Helvetia, there is a pay phone next to the Star Band Hall.

NOTE: If you wish to use GPS, type in the Hutte Restaurant, Helvetia, WV as your destination. Familiarize yourself with the routes described below and only use your GPS as a general guide. Sometimes the GPS sends you on the more rural routes that are a shorter distance but take longer due to the nature of the road.
