Clay County is located in central West Virginia, northeast of Charleston. It occupies 346.4 square miles. The Elk River bisects the county from east to west, entering at Duck and leaving at King Shoals. Rugged, laurel-covered hollows dart back from the narrow river valley, and level land is at a premium.
