This is a heavily wooded campground in a large state park. Sites are a bit narrow, but manageable. Some sites appear to be very difficult to get level on. No on air TV signal, and probably no satellite signal due to trees. We couldn't get a cell signal at our site. This is a very quiet campground with a decent and clean bath house. There is a small grocery store a few miles away and a decent supermarket 10 miles away in Davis. Very pretty countryside and mountains. The pool is at the lodge which is too far to walk, and is currently undergoing major renovation. We did get a weak Wi-Fi signal at the lodge. We camped at Canaan Valley Resort State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a lovely campground as long as you do not want any electronic connection (no TV, internet, poor cell phone reception) to the outside world. The campsites are lovely; bathrooms/showers kept clean. I was there before 'season' so the rate was great. We camped at Canaan Valley Resort State Park in a Motorhome.

Beautiful, well kept park. Plenty of space between sites and most all were heavily shaded. Our only complaint was the electric utilities are placed too close to the site making it difficult to get the slide outs out without putting your awning in the trees. Many pull-through sites are sloped front to rear. Higher elevations means cooler temps than surrounding areas so take warm clothes in fall. Excellent summertime temps though. No TV stations or internet is fine with us. We were here for the great outdoors. Very close to the best hiking WV has to offer and plenty of nearby streams for fishing. Great place to ride your bike as well. We camped at Canaan Valley Resort State Park in a Motorhome.
Very nice and can't beat the price. The staff kind of assumed everyone had been here before and we had to ask for things that would normally be offered (like directions to our site). But the grounds were clean and in a spectacular setting. Not to much more to ask for. Considering everyone here must burn wood in the winter it would be nice if the wood they sold was actually dry and burnable. I left a big pile behind that won't be useable until next year.

Our favorite campground so far. Campsite is huge and sits with perfect view of playground. Very quiet at night even fully packed. Super clean bathhouse. Short drive up to lodge for heated pool. Lots of hiking choices and fishing. Beautiful!! Small office on site for ice and wood. We camped at Canaan Valley Resort State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Canaan Valley is a fantastic place to visit. We got to see beautiful fall colors! The campground is tight and a challenge for larger rigs. We pull a 37' fiver, but got in just fine. The pull-through sites are too tight to pull-through: we had to back into our site (#3). However, after surveying the sites, there are several back-in sites that are large enough and two pull-through sites that are much larger. This park is worth a visit. We camped at Canaan Valley Resort State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our 3rd visit to this park! One of our favorites! It's worth the money, especially if you love the outdoors and enjoy hiking and biking! Our kids love the wildlife (deer and an occasional raccoon.) that come right into your campsite. It's always cool here in the mountains so be prepared for that. The pool is heated so that is a plus! Highly recommend Canaan Valley State Park! We camped at Canaan Valley Resort State Park in a Travel Trailer.

What a beautiful state park. I think that West Va. has a lot to offer and Canaan Valley Resort State Park is a great central location for recreation. I made our reservation for this camp ground only 1 month before we arrived. I didn't think I would get a reserved spot, but I was able to. All of the sites are very shaded and you have a lot of privacy. We had deer in our campsite every day. My children loved this. This will be a location we will visit again.

Small campground located on the grounds of a resort state park. The state park is located in a valley with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Close to many attractions like Dolly Sods, Blackwater State Park & Seneca Rocks, and there is a ski resort just across the road. All sites are paved, full hook ups ( a plus for a state park) and are a mix of back ins and pull offs from the road loops. Although sites are of decent size, our 37 foot motorhome was about the limit to fit in comfortably. We were in site #10 and had plenty of privacy with the wooded surroundings. Deer, raccoons, chipmunks and skunks were typical site visitors. Restrooms/showers were older yet clean. There is a full service hotel resort, and campground visitors have priviledges there. There are also cabins for rent and a nice golf course. This is a nice campground in a beautiful part of West Virginia and I would recommend it to anyone travelling to the area.

If you like the outdoors and peaceful setting this is the place to go. Situated in the mountains of West Virginia, this park is affiliated with Canaan Valley Resort and Conference Center. The ski slopes are nearby along with the lodge. The campsites are situated within 3 beautiful tree filled circles with full hook-ups, picnic table, and fire ring. If you have a larger Motorhome or Fifth Wheel, just be careful when setting up. Some of the sites are not very level and leveling up could become a problem if you aren't careful. There was an Airstream Trailer that came in to a site near us and could not level up, so they did leave the park. Park staff is very helpful so I suggest you discuss the size of your unit with them and have them help you choose a site suitable for your unit. Sites 10 thru 34 are reserveable sites while the others are first come first serve. They have a miniature golf course, play area for children, nature trails, and of course the use of the Resort. The only negative feedback we have about this park is that is does not have any lights along the paths or in the site areas; it's very dark in the evenings. Otherwise, this park is a keeper in our log book...will definitely return. We camped at Canaan Valley Resort State Park in a Motorhome.
