Very clean and comfortable. Beautiful surroundings. Appreciate the help of the gentleman who provided assistance with our sewer hook-up. Site surface was dirt and features a picnic table. We camped at Revelle's Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Revelle's for 4 days we hadn't ever stayed there before so we knew nothing about the campground. We weren't even there 5 minutes and what we thought was a wild turkey was in our campsite wouldn't go away. So we called the staff to see what was going on and turns out it belonged to the people who live across the street. The staff had me to call the man instead of them and ask him to come get his turkey. Well, that was a mistake, he cussed me out and told us he would ruin our stay. I just ask him to remove it. Turns out he is the owner's brother. The owner made me feel like I had done something wrong by complaining about that animal in our spot. Also, they have pigs, peacocks and turkeys running wild and they will be in your spot. No designated swimming area and the splash pad is only open from 1-3. When I asked why no swimming area the lady tells me swimming is in town. If you do not want the animals in your area making a mess then I would recommend you stay somewhere else. Lady who owns the place is really rude. Gps will not take you to the campground. roads are very curvy and narrow. only enough room for one vehicle. We camped at Revelle's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Owner is rude, equipment is run-down and the laundry facility is just a waste of time and MONEY! They do not consider privacy when assigning lots. We were put next to "overly friendly" tent campers. Every time we exited our trailer to sit outside they were all over us. The dog policy does not include the permanent campers I guess, since their dogs bark all night long. Will not be going back, this place has turned into a circus! We camped at Revelle's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Was not too impressed with this campground....upon check in, quoted price and check in price were way off by almost 100 dollars. I had to kindly remind front desk staff of campground special...which brought the price down but still not original quoted price. Front desk staff was not very helpful...first time in West Virginia and had no idea of where to go or what to do...it seems the front desk staff was on the same page as us. Very limited views of the river on the riverside sites because of overgrowth. Splash park was lacking....kids didn't even want to bother with it. Overall the camp looked liked it needed some love and TLC. We camped at Revelle's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The river is beautiful here. We did not enjoy camping behind the bar/restaurant. There were many people coming and going and the music was turned up very loud occasionally. The bath house needed serious attention with one women's toilet stopped up and filled with paper and excrement. The sites are too close together and ours was filthy upon arrival with cigarette butts strewn about and the fire ring full of ash, cans and glass. This is obviously a party scene campground. We won't be back. We camped at Revelle's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lovely park with riverfront sites, close to many mountain outdoor activites, doesn't feel crowded, helpful staff. Would stay there again. We camped at Revelle's Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rate reflects a 1/2 day discount for a four night stay. The setting is lovely with back in sites only. The vast majority of sites back directly to the river's edge. We were here in the fall and the location and surrounding areas were fantastic for leaf peeping. Both Wi-Fi and cable TV were good. If you are an angler then you can enjoy casting ten feet from your door. Staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. If coming from the east on route 33, turn right just before the four lane. A highway sign at the turn showing camping "left." Ignore it and make the right hand turn. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Revelle's Family Campground 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 at Revelle's Family Campground 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 at Revelle's Family Campground 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 at Revelle's Family Campground 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 at Revelle's Family Campground in a Motorhome.
