18 Parks near Bruceton Mills, West Virginia

Big Bear Lake Camplands is 3 miles down a windy, pot hole ridden road off I-68. Towards the entrance to the park you must go through a narrow road. At the guard gate, pray you don't meet "Broomhilda" the security guard (no joking West Virginia at her finest. The woman is a borderline simpleton. Once you check-in, your drive is fairly short to the campground. The campground has a few leveled, pull through, gravel sites for large motor coaches, a dozen or so (pull through) sites for larger fifth wheels and travel trailers and a dozen more back-in sites for smaller pop-ups, travel trailers, and tents as well as a few cabins. The entire site is gravel and there is a bath house (more closely resembling an outhouse). The bath house is not all too clean. The sites have NO wireless, NO cable, No laundry facilities, and barely any cell phone coverage. You'd need to stand on one foot with your left arm extended to get even a little signal. The entire area is also infested with poison oak and spiders so be extra careful where you walk. All day long you have the locals that live in trailers all over the park full time driving through the campground either investigating everyone's site or using the campground as a shortcut or using the bath house. On the weekend, the entire place is infested with drunk teenagers and adults driving golf carts and motor vehicles with beer in hand. Remember this is the wilds of West Virginia. Security is really scare and they only seem to bother checking to make sure no one overstays their visit. There is a lovely lake nearby and numerous trails for riding bikes or hiking. There is also a country store nearby. But, for what you pay, this place is a huge rip-off! It is out in the middle of nowhere. Bruceton Mills is actually 10 miles away and doesn't have a whole to offer either. Seriously, this place should be a lot less expensive for what it offers and what you have to deal with. Still, the location is pretty and the campground is fairly quiet during the weekday. Would not return to this site though. - LeoRunner

Lovely small park. Some reservable sites, some first-come. Very heavily treed. Ranger on duty at the small store.
Site 15 is a pull through, but had to back out because we couldn't make the turn. Could not get completely level.
Several sites are angled backwards, requiring going the wrong way on a one-way road; carefully check the campground map before arriving if you have a reservation. A few sites will fit big rigs but most won't. Great hiking.
Electric only. Get water at dump station at entrance before entering campground. Good showers. Good AT&T cell data, some OTA TV.
Road from I-68 is really narrow without shoulders. Use care when towing a trailer or a dolly. - bobcovey

Nice wooded loop. Very good privacy with the layout. Many lots turned into woodline. Lots are mostly asphalt. Nice playground for the kids. Showers/restrooms clean and warm at night/morning. The park is worth a visit for spectacular view from Cooper's Rock. We commuted into Morgantown everyday during our stay. Only con is dumping station is on a bit of incline and you'll never get tanks completely drained here, but you are in moutains of WV ~ what do you expect? - Roadtrek210

Great campground, gravel site but pretty level. Being late September there were very few sites occupied. A hike to the overlook is well worth it, make sure to bring the camera. We stayed one night while traveling, would love to get back and spend some time here. - TischeWi

This campground would probably work well for young families with small RV or trailer. Sites are gravel and not level. No 50 amp electric (we were told our site had 50 amp but that is really a 30 amp & a 20 amp they should provide adapter), cable, wifi or sewer at sites. Dump station is near office which is at the back of the campground. Has a lake for swimming but beach is mud not sand. The road off I-68 is narrow with no shoulder. It was advertised as big rig friendly but that is not true. Entrance hard to see & navigate. All sites are backin which would not be a problem if the roads were wider & trees were further apart. No picnic tables, patios or fire rings. We are here for 1 night and will only return in an emergency. - John & Bobbie

The guy who checked us in was very friendly and he even drove firewood to our site. We camped off season, very empty, peaceful and enjoyable. There was one or two seasonals but we were far enough away from them that it seemed we were alone. Yes we would come here often, though maybe not in season as it looks like it could be very full. In the snow season they offer sledding. It may be fun to camp here then too. - Ohiojude

The campground is located off a very rough blacktop road badly in need of repair. The road is narrow with low overhanging tree branches that must be dodged. The campground itself was okay but the photos online were much more attractive than the actual site. The office building area was littered with old construction equipment with items scattered all over the place. The owners had barking dogs that barked every time someone passed nearby. The only good/bad news is there was plenty of downed limbs for firewood that should have been cleaned up. It was obvious the owners weren't concerned about having a neat and organized campground. I would avoid this campground in the future. - joebud

Access to this campground was a nightmare...very narrow one-lane roads and about 5 miles off the freeway. Mostly full-time residents here with a few pull-throughs for travelers. - sbuckert

The park is truly beautiful but I can only give 3 stars because of the other issues. The campers were all down by the office except for one. The bathrooms down by the campers were all locked up. The only bathroom/showers were up on the top of the hill by the million dollar RV. The manager at first said they should be unlocked. He was told they were not unlocked. Then he changed his story saying the owner told him to lock them up. Then he told us he didn't have the keys. I have a disabled husband whom could not walk to the top of the mountain to take a shower or use the bathroom. We would have stayed two nights had the bathrooms been opened. However the Internet sucked. We keep being told the Internet is good only to find out we can't even get online. Oh and watch your step, it looked like human feces around the campground. I guess others couldn't make it to the top of the hill. We just used our motorhome. We camped here at the end of October. - Emtnest

This park is full of trees. Shady spaces, fairly level. We did observe 5th wheels having issues backing into back in spaces. They could probably improve those space by removing certain trees! We were after season, so a quiet park for us. It does fill up on football weekends. We would camp here again! - Proud Mary

A remote campground located in heavily wooded hills. A little pricey for what you get. Access from interstate is on narrow paved road from I-68. Exit #15 and follow signs to campground. Do not use your Garmin or TomTom as they will direct you to a logging road. Gravel interior roads with gravel semi-level sites. Maneuvering can be difficult for larger rigs due to the trees and narrow roads. Sites are well spaced with good access to utilities and all worked properly. A picnic table at each site. TV and Satellite connections did not work at my site due to trees. Verizon cell and data worked in the pull through area. WiFi service was spotty. Showers/restrooms are terrible. The restroom smelled like a pit toilet. Very very quiet with no train, plane or traffic noise. Depending on who is in the office, you will be escorted to your site. Lots of full time folks giving some areas the look of a “trailer park”. Good for an overnight stay. - plm

This is part of the Nemacolin Resort. The rate was actually $150.00 per night, I kid you not! Beautiful grounds and sites abound. World class golf, spas, restaurants, concierge service, free transports within the resort. They even hook you up to the utilities. No bathrooms are available however. A special place for a special weekend. It was our anniversary and we'll go back next year. Not the kind of cost we'd do every weekend but it's perfect for a special occasion. Miniature golf, a zoo, paint ball, horse riding, off road driving, paddle boats and more are offered. The place is huge. - Old Guys Rule

This park is closest to Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob, and also convenient for a day trip to Shanksville, PA and the Flight 93 Memorial.
The campground is in a beautiful wooded area away from main roads. Very close to multiple outdoor recreational activities and Ohiopyle State Park. There is a security gate which you need a code for, so the area is secure. There were a fair number of regular weekenders in travel trailers, but they were very friendly and engaging, and had helpful information about the area.
There is a decent camp store and a grill that served burgers and fries. We did not use the bathhouse or pool, but facilities seemed in good condition. The area was quiet and pleasant, except for a group of teens who played basketball in the late afternoon.
We had a very pleasant stay here and would stay here again if we were in the area. - villager

Overall this campground is very nice. It is a family friendly place, lots of small kids, but that didn't bother us (we don't have kids). The campground offers weekend activities to keep people busy and having fun. They have a pool and hot tub, and mini golf, which we didn't use, but looked nice. They do not have cable TV, and we only got 2 channels - the BBC and Food Network, however we weren't there to watch TV. Might be a drawback on a rainy day, though. They have Wi-Fi, but I believe you have to pay for that. There is a security gate with a key code you have to go through to get into the park. The only drawback on this was that when we first arrived to check in, we didn't know that, and pulled right up to the gate, as there really isn't anywhere else to park. I went in and registered, then she gave me the security codes, and we were able to get in, so when I returned to the truck, there was someone waiting behind me. This could be a problem during a busy arrival time. When checking in, they were very adamant about quiet time and their alcohol policy; which you can drink at your own sites, just not walking around the campground. I was worried about the quiet hours because it said no radio at all, but we kept ours very low and did not have any problems or had anyone complain. I was worried that they would have security driving around policing you all weekend - which they did not do, which was nice. Overall the campground was pretty quiet, even throughout the busy Memorial Day weekend. It was quite enjoyable. The sites seemed average size to me, not very big, but we were comfortable. Our site was in the Lake View area, which was nice, not too much traffic driving around. Our site did back directly up to a cottage, which was very close, but luckily all neighbors were nice, just a bit too close for comfort. Lake Josh is more of a pond, but people were down there fishing. The guys I asked said they did not catch anything. The roads could use better markings, because when we checked in, she highlighted on the map where our site was and how to get there, but we were confused on a few of the roads to turn down. It would be nice if they had someone direct you to your site, or better road markings. It could be quite difficult in the dark. I wouldn't recommend a site near the office, as that seemed very tight, and the outside sites seemed right on the road. I'm not sure if this would be the campground's fault, but they gave us a map that had local activities and establishments nearby, which I thought was nice, but when we decided to have pizza out at one of the places and drove to it, we found that the place was not open, it wasn't even built yet! That was disappointing. The campground is only a few minutes away from OhioPyle area, where there is a ton of outdoor stuff to do. Lots of hiking, biking, and water activities to enjoy. I really enjoyed this trip, the campground was clean and not loud, we had no problems. I would stay again. - Camper_Girl

This is an Ok campground. The interior roads and sites are gravel (rough gravel). Most of the sites were not level and crowded. Lots of nice shade trees, but not much grass between the sites. I did not see any pull thru sites. I think big rigs would have some trouble getting into this park. The restrooms/showers were clean with a mix of old/new facilities. The location is out of the way and kind of hard to find. Most of the sites were filled with seasonal units. I don't think we would stay here again. - skate

The campground is in steep hill country, which required some adjustments in driving by our OH flatlander group. The short piece of Tub Run Road is quite rough, but the campground itself is smoothly paved. It is in a wooded valley on a bay of the lake formed by the Youghiogheny River Dam and is quit, scenic and peaceful. We had a group of 8, with two trailers and a small RV- nothing over 30 feet, although we saw larger rigs there. Our three sites were large, level gravel pads with electric and water and partial shade. This was typical of all sites, as the grassy campground is liberally spotted with mature trees. Our sites were in the lakeview area, so they overlooked the lakeside row but, since the sites are terraced, we had a great view of the beach and lake. The shower house was close, very clean and the temperature was great. The widely known whitewater rafting company Laurel Highlands just began running this former Corps of Engineers campground this year. We found the staff friendly, helpful and to very attentive and available throughout our three night stay. We rented fully equipped kayaks for two hours for $22.00 and explored the bay. - Nemacarol

My family frequents Tub Run every year since I was 5 yrs old (now 36). It is extremely economical, and the campground attendants are fantastic. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway this is the place. There are no weekend activities for the kids or general store to buy tons of candy and junk you don't need, so if you have little ones, bring items to keep them occupied. The roads within the campsite are all paved, big bonus for my family. However, the road getting to the campground is rough terrain. Has its own private boat launch, and the inlet to Yough lake is your own little cove! There is a swimming area with a sandy beach. A large open field on the lakeside is great for kite flying or Frisbee. Wish the lakeside had electric hookups. If it did I would have given this place a 10. The kids playground area was removed a few years back and has yet to be reconstructed. Sites are mostly level and very large. Accommodated the 35 foot trailer with 2 slides no problem. Cell phone service is hard to come by, but dependent on where you are at in the campground, you may get a little service. Park rangers patrol frequently to ensure order and safety. Shower temp could be better. If you are the only one in the shower section, expect a shot of cold water at first, then it warms up. There is a little spillway from the creek side that the kids love to ride their bicycles through and catch crawfish. Getting to Tub Run can be an adventure traveling up the summit. Rt 40 is up and down hills; make sure you got good brakes and a good truck for towing! - 2beabeancounter

Great park, part of Army Corp parks. About half the sites are aimed at tent campers. Most sites have partial shade. Road to the campground is rough and the main roads in the area are very hilly so you will need to take your time. Sites are gravel and fairly level. Many have fire ring and picnic table. Some sites can only handle RV of 35' or smaller. We had no problems with our Class C. We have stayed at this park twice. Reservations on www.recreation.gov . Senior Pass discount is 50% so only $11 a night. - Tireman9

For location and beauty of the park, this CG is a ten; however, the filth in the bathhouses and the lack of enforcement of the quiet hours force me to downgrade our rating. We originally intended to use our pop-up, but since we couldn't get one of the three w/e sites, we decided to use our tent instead. We had site 60 in the Garrett Loop, which turned out to be a "handicap" site (accessible) and right beside a (noisy) cabin site and the bathhouse. This site was within short walking distance to a playground and a bit of a walk to the camp store and the hike to the falls (the beautiful main interest in the park). There was a visible presence to enforce the strict no-alcohol rule in the afternoon, but no one was around to tell our noisy neighbors at midnight to cut off the noise, so we had to -- Awkward! But the short hike to Muddy Creek Falls and the towering hemlocks made it all worthwhile. The CG part is completely shaded mostly by hardwoods, not the beautiful pines. We will return for sure and try next time to get one of the w/e sites. - Beth

The park has limited (3) full hook-ups, and one of them is usually a Camp Host. I guess for convenience and cost, the full hook-up sites are the closest to the bathhouse. Good sites, park very clean and the area is relaxing. The Falls is a fairly short walk from the CG. We have camped there last year and once this year, but plan on going back again later in the year. - DaGrinch

Park is in great setting in valley that overlooks lake. Mostly for seasonal RVs but has separate section with 12 sites for overnight/short term RVs. Very well maintained and owners are super people. We were in need of repairs and owners went well above the call of duty to help us finds parts and repair our rig. - jctbob55
