Beautiful park with large, spacious spots. Park roads are narrow but maneuverable for our 38' MH with tow car. The dump station was a little tricky with several U turns getting into and out of the station. Beautiful and historic sites in the park to see. We camped at Babcock State Park in a Motorhome.

Well maintained, beautiful state park. Our site was on the edge of the woods, and very private. Many trails to hike, from easy to difficult. Interior roads are paved and a bit tight in spots. Not all sites are level, but ours was. We camped at Babcock State Park in a Motorhome.

Enjoyed a weekend stay at Babcock State Park Campground. Great location and enjoyed our stay. Facilities were nice and clean. Lots of trails to hike and some very majestic views in the park. Will definitely return. We camped at Babcock State Park in a Travel Trailer.

One of the nicest campgrounds anywhere. Nestled among big trimmed up trees and open spacious sites. Nice nearby short walking trails-well marked. Very very clean restrooms including new bars of soap in the showers. Nice staff. Many hills and twisty roads to get here but worth it. We're from Colorado and heading home after a month in our Aliner camper. We camped at Babcock State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had a mixed experience during our stay at Babcock. The sites are very nice and most of them were shaded. There are two sections, both separated by the road into the park. We stayed in the main section. It had a bathhouse, playground and several water fountains. There is a smaller section across the road, but those sites seemed closer together and had less shade. The sites in the main section were well spaced and some of them were close enough to a fountain to drag a hose to fill your tank. About 50% of the sites were not very level so plan accordingly. The biggest issue we had was with the restroom facilities. They were clean but not well maintained. The men's restroom had 4 stalls and only one of them had a working lock. My wife said none of the stalls in the women's restroom had a lock. I mean how basic is that?! All they had to do was put a cheap $1 hook and loop pin in the door and it would be fixed. Instead we had to use our hands and feet to keep the door closed while using the facility. Another toilet was not mounted on the base properly and had a broken seat. Overall, the setting is very nice but the facilities could use some work. We camped at Babcock State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent State Park. Large spacious sites. Your choice of wooded or open sites. 30 amp electric only but fresh water available in park and two dump stations. Park has swimming pool, lake, paddle boats/canoes, trout stream, hiking, mountain bike trails and a working grist mill. Great location for area rafting, fishing, zip lines. We camped at Babcock State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Babcock State Park campground is exactly what I expected from a State Park. Clean, well kept, large shaded sites, affordable. Nothing fancy. I realy have no complaints about this campground. We camped at Babcock State Park in a Motorhome.

Our site was level and easy to get into. The dump station is a bit tricky. It wasn't to busy so we just drove around until we made it work. We saw lots of deer during our 2 night stay. The campground is clean and well kept. My boyfriend used the showers and said, " They were a bit worn and small." The playground had a couple of swings and a slide, other than that, the kids can bring bikes, the area is nice and level for riding. The Gristmill is working and very interesting. We camped at Babcock State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had site 32, was very large and spacious. There didn't seem to be a bad site in the place. All the sites were well spaced to offer privacy. Our site had a water tap behind it and we were able to connect a hose and fill our water tank. The area where we had our picnic table was a little uneven/sloped. I liked that each site had a garbage can for campers to place their garbage in rather than walking to a central garbage area. It was about 20 minutes away from the River Gorge Bridge attraction. We camped at Babcock State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Our site, in the across-the-road section was spacious and shady, and much quieter than the family-filled main section. Tidy and beautiful grounds. Disinterested staffers were annoyed that campers were arriving and interrupting their manicure and bull session (four staffers spent most of each day in the office). Poorly laid out dump station requires clever driving and many U-turns to use: from the pay station, make a U-turn, after dumping, make another U-turn to get to site, all across the entrance highway. Beautiful and historic buildings to explore within park. Pool not open. We camped at Babcock State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Camp sites were well spaced and clean. Our site was level and had a fire ring. All camp sites are gravel. There are drinking fountains though there are no water hook ups and one fountain has a faucet that you can attach your hose to and get drinking quality water to fill your tank if needed. They do have a dump site and washers and driers. Wildlife is abundant, saw whitetail deer multiple times while there inside the campground. Two adults camping in a truck camper. We camped at Babcock State Park in a Truck Camper.

Good state park, two areas with the smaller one being across the street and better for motorhomes or large 5th wheel / trailers. Electric only, but they do have water available. We had an excellent site and this is a great location to see the area, New River Gorge etc. We camped at Babcock State Park in a Motorhome.

Amazing state park near New River Gorge area. This park is not for those who want the "RV park" experience. Many sites have no hookups, the rest have only electric. The bathouses are spartan but clean, adequate hot water in decent showers, laundry facilities and dump station are available. Wonderful hiking trails with mountain views throughout the park, horseback riding available from onsite vendor, great mountain biking opportunities. The park is 15 minutes from many New River rafting outfitters. A nature lovers dream! We camped at Babcock State Park in a Travel Trailer.
