The access road to the park from I-64 is very windy and narrow with blind curves and sharp drop offs. We could not use the sewer hook up because it was at the very end of the site and we did not have a third hose section. We camped at Beech Fork State Park in a Motorhome.
We choose this park since it is currently the only State Park in WV accepting online reservations. The park is nice overall. The pool was very nice and enjoyable for the 90 degree weather we had. Great bike paths too. We stayed in the Full Hookup section. The sites are small. The Shower house was clean and great water pressure. We also used the Laundry facilities, which were also clean and convenient. We arrived on a Sunday and it was nice and peaceful all week until the locals started coming in for the weekend. Kids were riding their bikes through occupied sites, running over hoses and running into campers. We don't mind children but some "Campers Etiquette" would have been nice. They allow golf carts, which actually was a nuisance, since our neighbors liked to drive through out site so that they could park it next to the electric box for charging. The park itself is nice, the staff were all friendly and helpful. If you like peace and quiet I recommend only visiting during the week. We camped at Beech Fork State Park in a Travel Trailer.
Tips for other Campers:
If you have teenagers or are looking for adventurous activities, you will have to travel at least 2 hours one way. Oh, and don't forget to visit Hillbilly Hotdogs!
WE love this park. We stay in old orchard which has 50amp full hookup sites. Great bike riding areas and dog walking paths. Sites are mostly level and good power and water. Nice lake, tennis courts and swimming pool with children's splash area( requires additional small fee). Bathrooms are very good. Downsides: limited cell service ATT or TracPhone (GSM) only, the road in is somewhat narrow, sharp curves, mailboxes and guard rails right on the road you just need to take your time. We camped at Beech Fork State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
We loved the park. We stayed in a 50amp full hookup spot. Fantastic bike riding and dog walking. Sites are not real close together, pretty level and good power and water. Nice lake, tennis courts and swimming pool close by even tho we didn't use them. Septic is at the back of the site but make it nice in my mind. Bathrooms are plenty good. Downsides for us,, no Verizon service, didn't get satellite but probably could have if we moved over one site. THE ROAD IN IS VERY BAD!! Narrow, sharp curves, mailboxes and guard rails right on the road. If not for the lack of cell service and the road in I would have given this park a 9. And I have NEVER given a 10 yet I don't think. The road would be fine for the more narrow trailers but our motorhome was tight tight tight. We camped at Beech Fork State Park in a Motorhome.
Nice park. We stayed in the Old Orchard section in a pull through lake front site. No cell coverage on our Sprint phones (talked to a few people and found out best signal is ATT). Saw lots of wildlife including many deer does and fawns and 2 bucks. Contrary to opinions on here, I loved the curvy, hilly roads. Being from Florida, I enjoyed driving the roads in my car and was just extra careful when in my class A pulling a toad. Nice pool and recreation area.

Beautiful well maintained park. We stayed in the new area that had 50 amp FHU at the park entrance. There are some beautiful sites on the lake further into the grounds if you don't require 50 amp, but due to the heat, we felt it wiser to take advantage and use our A/C. Personnel very nice and helpful. Walking trails, a lot of wild life, nice sized sites. Our area was all pull through; the lake sites were back-ins. Decent OTA TV signal. The only negative, for us, was our Verizon air card and cell phone had little to no signal. Other than that, we really enjoyed our time here and would return.

Very nice campground. Pool is nice. We camped on the lake in Moxleys branch. Campground is not too cramped. The only negative thing about Beech Fork is all the golf carts. They are dangerous and a nuisance. We camped at Beech Fork State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful and well-kept state park. Quiet and peaceful. The road in according to Woodalls and road signs, was very narrow and winding. We took a slightly different route out, recommended by campground personnel, which was much better. Call and ask staff for best route. We camped at Beech Fork State Park in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here one night. Its a great state park once you get there. You must drive along Route 10 which is a narrow, winding road to reach the park. The park is on a lake and stretches out quite a way. The lake near us was still and did not have fresh looking water in it. Tent campers are separated from RV people. Showers have shower curtains not locked doors. There is no TV and no computer connections at all. We saw deer grazing on the park grounds. The grounds are clean and neat. The Ranger on duty at the check in gate was super nice. We would return here for a longer stay. We camped at Beech Fork State Park in a Travel Trailer.
We were very pleased with this park. Yes, the road to get to and from the park is curvy, and it is a way off the beaten path, so I suggest going to the grocery store in Huntington on your way to the campground so that you won't have to leave again. No cell phone service. Other than that, it was clean and nice, with friendly park rangers. We will definitely be camping here again when we visit family in the area.

The campground is nice but the road leading to it is terrible. It is about 8 miles out to the interstate and it is a narrow and hilly 8 miles! There is one curve that you can almost read the license plate on your own camper when you go through! The sites are very nice and the water is very pretty. The waterfront sites are primitive or electric only. The inland sites have water and only the front section has sewer. Cell phones will not work there! Most sites are level and the water drains well in a hard rain. I would probably rate it higher if it wasn't such a pain to get into and out of. We camped at Beech Fork State Park in a Travel Trailer.
