This is one of the best campgrounds we’ve experienced. Sites are average to fairly large in size. Most are level. There are 4 sites on the same level of the bath house that are reserved for handicapped. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Couldn’t ask for much better. The bathhouse is modern and heated, which is nice on the cool WV mornings and nights. They are cleaned daily. The resort offers lodging of all types, everything from hotel to tent camping and numerous activities that include horseback riding, hiking, swimming etc. We plan to return to this campground often and would highly recommend it. During the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day I wouldn’t try this place without having a reservation.

This campground has two sections; one is fairly level with a stream running through it. The other section is on “the mountain.” To get to this area you have to navigate a steep paved road that has some pretty good curves in it. There were numerous large rigs that camped up there, so it’s not as difficult to navigate as it looks. Based on amenities, this is not the worst campground. However there were some serious draw backs for us. I suffer from MD. When making reservation I discussed this with the person taking the reservations and told her we needed a site close and easily accessible to the bath house. She agreed and suggested a site on the mountain just across the drive from it. This was agreed on and the reservation was confirmed. When we arrived, we found that they had already rented this site and assigned us a site on the opposite side of the campground from the bath house. After some serious discussion they finally put us in site two rows from the bath house but we had to walk up a step, poorly maintained gravel road to get to it. I still had to drive. This CG gets its water from a well. We found after we hooked up that water was brown, probably from recent heavy rains. That’s understandable but we were not told about this at check in. It did clear up over the next day or so, but we still didn’t use it for drinking water. The bath house is fairly modern but not cleaned during our 3 day stay. When this was brought to the staff’s attention, they wanted to argue about it, claiming they had been cleaned every day. Unless the same bugs died the exact same spot as the previous one, the same paper was dropped in the same spot and the same exact mud streaks, (I think and hope it was mud) were left, it was obvious that no cleaning had been done. They also didn’t have any handicapped facilities in the bath house on the mountain. As stated, the lower level had the more level sites. This area also appeared to have quite a few seasonal campers. The sites on the mountain are very small: the area that you would park a camper were pretty close to level. Many are not much more than area you can pull of the road. Ours did not have a fire ring. We did not have enough level area left over for a 10x10 tarp. We used it, but had to make adjustments to get it close to level. We were told upon arrival the cable TV was not working. Wi-Fi did work, even on the mountain, but it is a weak signal and slow. I think the price that is charged for this campground is very high. We visited some other CGs in the area that where better kept, looked nicer and where about ½ the price. If they charged $20 to $30 a night this would be an average CG. At their premium rates, it’s well below average. For us, this is a campground that we will use only if our first, second and third choices are not available.
