If you like to be entertained with pools, and structured activities you may want to go elsewhere. If you like peace and quiet, genuine nice folks (both owners and fellow campers) and life off of the beaten path, you will love Pegasus. We did. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park. Friendly owners and staff; really try to make you feel at home. Very clean restrooms. Quiet and peaceful. Does have shaded tent sites; not much shade for RV sites. We paid for one night at check in and then ended up staying five more! Will definitely return. Call ahead. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you are looking for a luxury campground, Pegasus Farm is not for you. We chose this spot which is basically a big field with hookups. We were hoping to get to hear the resident "band," but alas, it was too late in the season. We weathered that disappointment by enjoying the peacefulness of the farm, taking the opportunity to let our little dog run off-leash, and experiencing the wonderful funkiness of the facilities. Make sure to ask about the "zen" (translation: hippie) bus/motorhome conversions that are available for rent.. Owner and his wife make you feel very at home, as if you are part of their farm family, and they have great tales to tell about their very interesting lives. We happened to stay there the weekend of the annual "Forest Festival" in Elkins. If you can arrange to be there next year for the festival, we highly recommend it. The parade alone was fabulous! Would definitely stay here again. A very relaxing and unique experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice campground very clean. They have no office at campground so make sure you call before you arrive. It is run out of the owners house which is located as soon as you turn onto narrow road to campground . I didn't and he chased me down and lightly scolded me for not calling. So make sure you call. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Found this after a bad state park experience in the area. This is a wonderful little park in a farm field just outside of town. Don't let smallish entrance road fool you it opens up to a nice meadow where the campsites are. The sites are level gravel surrounded by lush green grass with new modern utilities. Shower/Bath house was new and spotless. It's obvious the family running this take pride in customer service. If you are looking for swimming pools, spa's and workout rooms you won't find it. If you are looking for peace and quiet, wildlife and a fishing pond this is your place. Free firewood, fire ring, and picnic table at each site. They encourage you to let your dog run free and unleashed. Open sky for satellite and strong free Wi-Fi. Our Verizon air card worked well-not broadband but fast enough. I highly recommend this park and have found a place to stay when visiting family in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We intended to stay at the Pegasus campground for a day or two but ended up staying 8 days. Staff were just the most wonderful hosts that you could want. The campsite in itself was great. Spacious, clean and in the middle of the nicest mountainous countryside. But it was the people there that did the magic. We would gladly return to the US just to stay at Pegasus once more. And it's a long way from where we live... We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed longer than our initial plans. We would have stayed even longer if we could have. The delightful hosts make you feel like a guest rather than a customer. We weren’t there for one of their music events, though they sound like great fun. With no event the campground has more space than you would imagine. The sites, all 20, are as large as any we’ve seen, and we’ve seen many. There is plenty of room to unwind and relax and plenty more room to wander through fields and meadows visiting streams and ponds. The abandoned railroad tracks make an interesting walk with deer and groundhog sightings. I didn’t see the beaver, but I caught a fish. Saw a hawk chasing a duck. Felt like I had returned to my grandmother’s farm. A great place to reeeelax! We camped here in a Motorhome.
As others have noted, this is a rare find. Located very close to Elkins and a lot of "Wild and Wonderful" West Virginia activity. Very quiet, except when the owners and their band (ZEN) crank up the music. They are very good musicians. With full hookups and Wi-Fi, you could stay a long time. Only drawback is one lane, 500 yard dirt road into "The Farm". Will definitely stay here again when in the area. Limited shade, but then there's great satellite reception. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This campground is located on a working farm complete with vegetable gardens, flower beds, horses, lots of deer and a fishing creek with an active beaver lodge. Owners Mark and Bonnie are native West Virginians who have put a lot of hard work and love into this campground. The long, level, gravel sites overlook a meadow and it is very peaceful here. Power and sewer are good, but at 110 psi the water pressure is high so make sure you bring a regulator. The entrance road from the county road is a typical gravel farm road. It's narrow and one lane but we made it easily with our 40' motorhome and Mark's escort. Make sure to call him before you get into town; he'll meet you across from the local Super Wal-Mart and take you to the campground. He says that folks get lost when they follow the GPS directions as they are not accurate. We came to Elkins to attend Augusta Heritage Music Camp, a week long intensive program taught by highly qualified instructors. Upon leaving the campground we learned that Bonnie and Mark have been playing guitar, mandolin and harmonica since they were teenagers and they hold four music festivals at their campground each year. We hope to play together when we return for a month next time. Elkins is home to a Branson-style family music theater, four train rides, Wednesday night bluegrass music picking in the park, several neat restaurants and great outdoor adventures. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a rare find among privately run RV parks. When I saw the park on Google I was a little worried as the park is adjacent to Elkins airport and railroad tracks. However, the tracks are not utilized and the airport is also not a problem. During the week the place is so peaceful and quiet. Memorial weekend was Jubilee time. There was a new stage where local groups performed into the night. It was great great fun and we met many wonderful people. There are several weekends through the summer packed with musical programs. Even though the park was super busy the bathrooms were kept immaculate. There are not a lot of trees but it is nice to be on grass and the mountain nights are cool. Firewood was provided. Be sure to follow the directions on the web site. The actual road into the campsite runs directly past the owners home so they keep a watchful eye on everything. Elkins is a fun little town with lots of history and several scenic train excursions. At Pegasus Farm you can set a tent up on soft grass and spend a quiet week or enjoy a fun packed weekend. Call or email as you may need reservations We camped here in a Motorhome.
Even though the weather (for the most part) was very dreary, we had a very warm welcome from the owners of the CG. It's in a lovely setting. The only negative is the one lane road getting to the sites. It's difficult since it has so many holes. Other than that I'd give it a 10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A spectacular mountainview wonderland with flowing creeks; wild life, hiking trails and secluded from nearby town. Immaculate condition on the grounds, restroom, showers. The owners are friendly people; they take pride in this jewel-like setting. We loved it here, we will return and we give them top score in rating. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We are currently traveling the US and have visited 27 States, stayed at 44 different campgrounds so far. We have seen it all...the good, the bad, the ugly! We have not stayed at a more serene, peaceful and scenic campground, complete with impeccably clean showers and bathrooms, lush, green grass where deer roam freely, running creeks and full view of the Appalachian Mountains. Mark and Bonnie, the owners, could not do enough for us. They even called us on our cell phone a day after we got set up to make sure we were all right and to see if we needed anything. Firewood is free and Mark also brought us a package of fire starters for our fire as well as fresh homegrown ramps (an Elkins favorite vegetable). We went to town one day and when we returned he had placed a plastic trash container complete with a plastic bag by our 5th wheel. We rate this Campground a ten! Thank you Mark and Bonnie for a wonderful experience, we will never forget you and your marvelous Campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here 2 nights and it was wonderful! There are veggie gardens all around and lots of flowers. Mark took us to a big potato patch and let us dig potatoes and onions. SUCH FUN! We camped here in a Motorhome.
WOW!! What a peaceful place to stay. Very close to town, but it feels like you are way out in the country. Mark and Bonnie and two of the most genuine people you will meet. They are the real deal. Don't expect glitz and glamor, but do expect peace and tranquility. This is the place you need to stay when you need a break from the rat race of the world. You will feel like you are visiting friends. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had a river site...which is a nice good size river. The site was huge. It was really nice being right on the river, with windows open you can hear it running and I caught 6 bass at about 7PM. The campground is more for just having a camp fire, fishing, riding bikes, etc. Pool is a short drive away so not really practical. Its either you love the laid back style of the campground or you hate it. I loved it. Its country. Being from Connecticut its very different here...Cable TV was also good, all hookups were good. Nice campground here in the WV mountains. Nice getaway in nature. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had a spot on what they called a river. You could walk across so it wasn't very deep (great for kids to play in looked pretty clean). Sites were small but some were shaded. The campground was gravel roads and older but was kept in decent repair. Showers/Restrooms were a little older but the ones we used were pretty clean and there was plenty of hot water. Friendly staff and all in all an OK place to stay for a couple nights. They had a newer large bar restaurant in the back area that we didn't have the chance to use. Internet didn't work the 2 nights we were there and the cable was out for part of our stay. If we went to the area again we would stay there again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is a nice park if you use the sites along the stream. These sites are level grass w/ all hookups. The store is well stocked, and the the grounds are well kept. Being able to walk ten steps from your rig to fish in shavers fork is awesome! No pool on grounds, but they own the old Jellystone park, so you can use all the facilities there. By far my favorite park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Best thing about this park is it's location. Right in the middle of many area attractions. We went east one hour to Seneca Rock one day, south one hour to Durbin and the Steam train the next day. Rest rooms are very old and small, but clean. The camp ground is clean, but the sites are very close together. Moreover, many if not most of the sites are grass/dirt/gravel, and few seem to be level. The interior road of the cg has numerous potholes. Some sites are open field camping. We came in a 36 foot RV. Easy in and out. The directions to the cg are somewhat misleading as well. The directions say "stay on four lane until it ends." What it should say is "follow US 33 East through Elkins until you come to Faulkner Road. " We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful CG located in the valley of Cheat Mtn. Easy to get to, just off Rt 33 E of Elkins on Faulker Rd. I highly recommend the riverfront sites as they are very spacious & the sound of the stream flowing is so peaceful. Prices range from $15 tent no utilities/off-river to $25 for full h/u riverfront sites. Full h/u includes cable tv. Extra charges for heat/ac use. There are 2 CG's with the name Revelle's on Faulkner Rd. One is the River Resort & one is the Family CG. I think the RR is for seasonal/permanent rv-ing (even though the website home page comes up as the RR) , as we stopped there first, by mistake, & needed to go down the road another 3/4mi to the Family CG. Small playground, basketball court, horseshoe pits, stables on site for short to overnight rides, scenic train-ride nearby that will stop in CG for boarding on Sat's, snack shop, full service restaurant (both outside seating & inside a restored dining car), fishing,campstore, inner-tube rentals. They also have several cabins, cottages, couple of rv's...etc available for rent. We really enjoyed our stay here & would highly recommend this CG. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

Management is very friendly and is clearly planning to make improvements to amenities (for example, will be adding float trips down the river soon). Trout stream was excellent. Laid back atmosphere. Wish they'd had a pool for my kids as my 3-year old was frustrated with the river. About an hour from Blackwater Falls and Canaan Valley (scenic winding roads). We camped here in a camper.
We traveled with our children 13, 10, and 3. They had a wonderful time. The older 2 tubed down the river and jumped off rocks into the creek and the younger one spent time with Yogi Bear. There were many activities planned and though not all were well run the children enjoyed them. Our site was large and grassy though kind of swampy from the recent rains- avoid row B if possible. The pools and public areas were clean and well kept, but the restrooms needed more attention. We will return. We feel we got good value for our money and the staff was excellent. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was a nice park. Restrooms were clean and nice children's activities. Absolutely beautiful area! As a lot of the places we have been to the game room was outdated but they had nice playground equipment and the pools were nice. They also had rive tubing that looked very fun but we hit a cold spell while we were camping so we did not get to try it. Overall this was a nice place and I would definitely go back! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
A nice park, relatively new. Only a dozen or so pull through sites, which are level. A lot of the back-in sites (especially the river sites) slope drastically to the rear, and we’d never be able to level our motorhome if we used one, although there are level back-in sites available. The 50A electric was as high as 132 volts (not a typo) late at night. Water pressure varied from good to very low randomly, day and night, which made taking a shower interesting, but the water seems to be of good quality. I measured the pressure while we were unhooking, and it was only 28 psi. There are a lot of seasonal units throughout the park, but all were newer units that were well taken care of. We had no concerns for our safety while we were here. The campground’s convenient for the New Tygart Flyer train ride in Elkins. The track was less than 20 feet from our pullthrough site, which allowed us get some pictures of the train literally from the door of our rig. (And of our rig from the train!) Don’t be concerned about train noise, though. It runs on Saturday and Sunday only (once in each direction per day), and the rest of the week the only thing we saw was a single hi-rail maintenance truck on the track one day. By the way, when you make reservations for the train, you can actually request that the train stop at the campground for boarding! We chose not to do that though, and drove the 9 miles to the newly restored station in Elkins, because one highlight of the ride is a 1600 foot tunnel that would be missed if you board at the campground. It’s about a 50 mile ride in each direction to the Cass Scenic Railroad, which is without a doubt the most unusual State Park I’ve ever been to. If you’re interested in trains, it’s well worth the trip to see rare Shay locomotives in their natural habitat - pushing trains up mountains via switchbacks with up to 9 percent grades. There are three different train rides that can be taken, depending on the day you visit. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is the former Revelle's Riverside Resort. It is next to Revelle's Family Campground, and campers may use the facilities and activities at both campgrounds. The web site identifies the location as Elkins, which is a full-service town about 7 miles west. Below is a letter that I sent to the campground after a recent stay. Dear Managers and Staff of Yogi's, Bowden, WV, I'm writing to thank you for a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I know that sometimes people are quick to criticize, but then don't bother to mention when folks go the extra measure, which you did. Besides being in one of the most beautiful settings of any campground I have seen, Yogi's is meticulously maintained with obvious pride. Everything was clean. The grass was green, full and trimmed. All the hookups worked perfectly with clean water and good pressure. (Campsite cable TV that actually works? Didn't you get the memo?) But best of all were you wonderful folks who bent over backwards to make sure that all the guests were happy. It would have been easy to take the attitude that you were sold out and campers were lucky just to get a spot (True), but instead you treated us like valued guests. It was much appreciated. We also liked that so many activities were included, and what was charged for was reasonably priced. Even though Bowden is a five hour drive from home over some very challenging roads, my family has decided to make your campground our new Memorial Day tradition. We look forward to seeing you again soon. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
