9 Parks near Hacker Valley, West Virginia
Jun 2013 - $18.00
What can I say other than what a wonderful place to camp. It only needs a few things to literally be the perfect place to camp. Needs modern hook ups and communications access (in some way possible). Other than that it is literally heaven. If you like the woods, nature, need to get away, love to fish, or relax, holy river is the perfect place. - buzzkirk

Driver BEWARE. This park is the tightest maneuvering park we have ever been in. Better not have a very long or high rig because it is dangerous getting through all the tall pines, low branches and tight turns. No grass, just pine needles everywhere. Not a friendly staff but maybe one. In fact, two were down right rude. We should have left before ever setting up but we were tired and this park is so far in the boonies where else would one go? West Virginia has so many wonderful parks so best to check them out first and maybe skip Holly River State Park. - WVrvers

Deep in the mountains of WV. Not near anything and is therefore a destination unto itself. Tight, twisting roads to get there from I-79. But - well worth a week or weekend of relaxation in the WV wilderness. Great hiking, biking, and decent fishing. The campground is well spread out and so shaded in the valley, that at 6pm, you think it's 9 or 10pm! Beautiful place! - pmbeaty

This was another two night stop as we traveled from our summer volunteer position in Connecticut back home to Texas.
Long drive down a windy state highway. No problems, but take it slow.
Excellent site in main CG loop - #106. Very helpful staff. CG was flooded in spring 2015, yet in excellent shape in October for our visit.
As mentioned - remote with no cell coverage.
Sutton Lake at the CG looks more like a river. CG is very near the upper limit of the lake.
Despite 17 mile drive in, and out from interstate, a great overnight stop, and likely a great destination for fishermen. - PawPaw

We stayed in site 39 by the river in our 37 ft Winnebago, with 50 amp/water/sewer connections. The park is lovely and well-maintained. Lots of green space where families were playing games. Our campsite was paved and shaded in the evening by a large tree. Some sites are shaded and some aren't. Fairly level sites. Hwy 15 to the campground is somewhat challenging with hills and sharp curves, but certainly doable. We didn't use any of the facilities. The reason for a 4 star rating instead of 5 is that unfortunately, our site was littered with trash and cigarettes. I would stay here again and would recommend. - Donna and Steve

Great looking COE campground, full hook-ups with 50amp that are in good condition. Huge park with a marina and lake/river side parking for those wanting to fish all night. Recently renovated from looking at things with the playgrounds. Gate attendants are friendly and friendly. No cellular coverage without booster for AT&T and Verizon. Would recommend for anyone wanting to stay in the Sutton area, quiet friendly well managed park with lots of outdoor activities, a snack bar and marina to enjoy. - jangle

Honor system to pay. We should have looked for site & then paid. Only 1 loop open out of season. All back ins. Some FHU. Sites on lake Electric only. On gravel with grass between plenty of room between sites. Some shade. No cell (Verizon). Very peaceful. - jcpjane

Cleanest and most up to date restrooms of any park we have been. Bulltown is a beautiful park sitting on the lake. A lot of Civil War history. The "Battle of Bulltown" actually took place within the campground. One word of advice- Do Not Come in from the North. - Bamagolfer

This is a nice campground if you love LOTS of screaming kids and LOTS MORE barking dogs. We have a dog, so not a sour grapes person, and we also camped in the pet section. That said, some brought as many as 3-4 dogs, had pens set up, some let the dogs run loose, we even saw a Rottweiler running loose in the campground. Strange, because the sheriff patrols the CG several times a day as does the park ranger, especially on the weekends. We really liked the campground even though the sites in C loop (pet section also) were very close together along the back side away from the lake, which is where we were camping. The water was brown most of the time, we had to run it for a minute or so to clear it up, this we did several times a day. Now, even after all that, we would come back to this CG, probably leave the dog home and camp in the "no pet" section. The view of the lake is very nice from most of the campsites, and if you boat or fish, you will like this campground. We see the signs for the "recovery act" everywhere here. We can see where the money went, not to improve the grave sites, but they put in some of the biggest nicest playground equipment we have ever seen. Granted, the kids need nice play toys, just not sure that our tax dollars should have gone to that extreme, maybe some new campsites on top of the hill overlooking the campground would be lovely, or improving the volunteers campsites, which were rustic at best. I mentioned that, because you can use them if the volunteers are not utilizing them, however, they are not near the lake. If they get a grip on the dog situation and if people get a grip on their kids from screaming from 8am to 9 pm. I literally mean screaming kids, we were at the far end of the playground and we could hear them just fine. This would be a really nice campground for people who love the lake and the beauty of the surroundings. - buffy

I should have read the previous reviews before arriving! Like others, we got to the KOA entrance gate in our motorhome with tow car and saw the sign saying not to enter until checking in at the Days Inn Hotel. Unable to back up or turn around, we did a loop through the campground and back to the hotel parking lot. There are no RV check-in lanes and the hotel parking lot was fairly crowded, so we just pulled across two parking spaces and blocked one of the aisles while checking in. Also as others have mentioned, although the KOA is not far from the interstate, the road to get there is steep and has some sharp turns. Inside the campground the roads are narrow with some steep hills possible (depending on which section you're in). Our site was sloped so we could not get our motorhome level with just the jacks and had to add some blocks under our low wheels. The sites are mostly pull-throughs, with a few back-ins. Our pull-through was plenty long and wider than average for a KOA, with a gravel pad, grass lawn, picnic table, and BBQ grill. The area was pretty with lots of trees and hills. We were only there for one night but never saw any KOA staff in the campground. They did have free WiFi that was slow but worked fine for basic usage. Verizon and AT&T both had strong service. We might use this KOA again as an overnight stop but will first look into what other options are available. - LifeRebooted

Very nice, spacious campground. Sites are gravel and feature a fire ring and picnic table.
Little difficult to find but would stay here again. Stayed overnight. - 20165thwheel

First, to register you must drive up to the top of a hill, the road is narrow and has curbs, yes, curbs which can be clipped if not very careful. The road leading down into the campground is asphalt and very narrow, steep, and curvy. Did not enjoy that drive and especially when exiting, very steep, narrow and curvy...
The campgrounds is well kept, large trees, and grass, concrete patios, and picnic tables. There is good spacing between sites. Full hookups worked good. You have access to all the amenities of the hotel, i.e., the pool, fitness, center, dining. We camped in 43 ft RV with tow. We would stay here again . Site was NOT level. - ritag

Campground is on lake with a dam but no sites are lake view. Interior road is paved but sites are gravel and grass. Has picnic table, fire ring and lantern pole at each campsite. Has bath houses but did not visit them.
No reservations accepted. Honor system for payment. Senior pass was $15 per night for 50 amp. full hookups! For us, in a 40 foot motorhome coming in site unseen, we were very apprehensive. But it turned out very well.
Verizon wifi and cell access non existent but depending upon which side of the road and which site you are on, Direct TV was fine for us in Site 21.
Only 3.5 miles from I-79 at exit 79! Great place to overnight but would not consider it for a destination. Reason for high rating was easy access from interstate, price and hookups for the price. No shopping close by but saw the 79er restaurant at exit 79 off of I-79!!! - eaglesfan

I paid $10 for a site with electric and water, under my Golden Age Passport. Regular rate is $20. Regular rates for full hookup $26, tent/primitive $12. Cash or check, no reservations. Open Apr 25-Nov 30. Shower/restroom facilities, laundry, playground, dump, fresh water fill-up, tables, fire-ring/grills. Sites are along Riffle Run, a pretty little stream that runs most of the year. Campground host was friendly and accommodating. - Mobility

This was a nice quiet park in a wonderful setting. Lots of green grassy areas to play in and to walk the dog. The parking areas for the pull-thrus was gravel and fairly level. We had no problem with our DirecTV satellite dish locking on to a signal. The owner was friendly and helpful. My only complaint about this park is the 5 mile drive on the paved road to get to it, once you leave the main highway. The road is smooth, but it is very narrow. There are also no shoulders but a sharp drop-off on the road edge. It is also very hilly with lots of curves. For most of the 5 mile drive, the road lanes are too narrow for a normal size class A coach. I was fortunate in that we only encountered two cars on our entering and leaving the park. With the trees on either side, it would have been very difficult for two RV's to pass without damage. I really did like this park, but that 5 mile drive could be a problem. - rgatijnet

We found this campground to be very clean, quiet, and relaxing. It is a beautiful setting in the mountains of West Virginia with very friendly and helpful owners who live on the premises. There is a hiking trail on the property, streams running through the grounds, a small pond for fishing, a pavilion with picnic tables, and a small play area for the children. The pool was clean but it is an oval above the ground pool. Good for young children only. The sites are grass and have some trees for shade. Many campers had boats and took them to Stonewall Jackson Lake for the day. The only negative remark we have regarding this campground is that the road to it is very narrow and windy so one must be very careful driving. We will return to this campground for another relaxing and enjoyable stay. - cleo1948

Beautiful 77-site Corps park on Elk River / Sutton Lake. 14 mi. east of Sutton on narrow winding road. We had no trouble with 37 ft. rig towing a pickup truck. Some full hookup 50 amp, some 30, some electric only, some no-hookup sites. Prices from $20. -$28. - travelingjim1

This a Corps of Engineers (COE) campground part of the Lake Sutton facility. This is 14 miles into the woods until you get to a very nice campground. However, the roads leading to the campground are very narrow, steep and winding. Our 31' C was at the max of size in my opinion. Level sites, waterfront, great bathhouses, friendly people, but oh those roads getting in. Use care if you go - Rich Pratt

This is a VERY nice campground. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. All roads are asphalt with paved camp sites. Plenty of space at each site. Gravel patio area with picnic table and fire ring. Beautiful view of the lake, golf course and trees. Very well maintained grounds throughout the park. - Dedra C

This park is part of a huge complex with a golf course, marina, restaurants and more. Some I spoke to, said this park was their summer vacation destination. Many of the campsites have excellent views of the lake. Many were on the lake kayaking and fishing. It is a very friendly park from staff to campers.
We were on site 39. It was the last available site. We drove in without a reservation and got lucky. Our site was large enough that I didn't have to unhook the tow vehicle for an over night stay. We liked the fact that each campsite had its own trash receptacle. The site was paved with a gravel area with picnic table and fire ring. The site was very spacious with grass surrounding it. Utilities were excellent and well located. - petendoll

The campground is on a peninsula with water on three side near the Stonewall Resort across the water. I am very impressed with how well maintained this campground is kept up and how nice the sites are with blacktop for each trailer and gravel area for each picnic table and fire ring. There is plenty of grass around each site. There is a boardwalk near the front of the park near site #1 which goes over the the lodge and is a beautiful walk, I went over several times while walking my dog Callie. There are at least two playground areas for children. I noticed several people fishing off the edges of the park. Each site has it own trash container and recycling container which is enclosed by a wooded structure and covered by a steel grate to prevent wildlife from getting in, a very nice convienience. I am only passing through on a multi-state trip but would definitely return again if I were in the area again. The other campers were very friendly as well. Not sure if that is because this is West Virginia. - Camper Jay

Inexperienced clerk slightly overcharged us and the manager chased us down to give us a $1 back! Shower room being painted. Very picturesque spot. Lot spacing was spacious and mostly shady. Site surface was gravel. Restrooms and showers were clean. - FrankRogers

This is a place for a one night stop right off the interstate and nothing more. You don't need a reservation. Just show up. There is no WiFi or cable and we couldn't get DirecTV because of the trees. This was the first time in all my RVing that I couldn't get even one channel on the TV. That being said, our site was roomy and fairly level with a pine straw service. There are no sewers. When we were leaving we went to the end of the road and it was just a turnaround so we came back and left through the entrance. I didn't see a dump station, but they advertise one. I think any rig larger than our 34' Class A would have trouble on the turnarounds. - RVerMJ

Staff very friendly and helpful. There are a lot of resident campers but that didn't bother us. Site was a bit tight but we managed to get our 4 slides out. I would imagine it could be a bit muddy in the rain. RV park is very quiet. We found it ideal for an overnight stay. - PhaetonCouple
