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

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

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

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

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

Campground is quiet. I'll give it that. Small rural place. No concrete or gravel on our site. The entrance/exit is only one lane, you are in serious trouble if you meet someone coming the opposite way. Narrow roads interior also. Bathrooms were spotless which is a plus. Utilities worked fine. Exiting with a right turn needs to be done very cautiously due to a deep culvert on the right. Beware! Very basic park with a fairly high price. That all being said. There is not many choices in this area. - hug448844

We just returned from two great days at Bumble Bee and we upon arrival we encountered a major problem and that was we could not disengage our fifth wheel from the hitch. We had planned to roam the area, fly fish on the Savage River and it seemed that all was lost until the owner went and got her daughter's car filled with gas and saved the day. Great people, very secluded and quiet and lots of shade. We will go back again. - Frances Ann

A very very nice campground. We arrived late at night and were greeted very nicely by the staff. They even helped us set up at ten o'clock at night. The campground is one of the quietest I have ever stayed at. The staff checked on us every night to make sure everything was fine and I even saw them help out a young couple who were camping in a tent for the first time which was very nice to see. The bathrooms were wonderfully kept and there was not a speck of trash to be found anywhere in the campground. The campground would have gotten a ten rating if only they had a little bit more level sites. The owner was working on several sites to try to get them more level however don't forget to bring at least 3 inches worth of leveling blocks. - sta9firefighter

The campground is very pretty, with a quiet, immersed-in-nature feel to it. It is only a few miles off Interstate 68, making it a good stopover spot while traveling. The clerk who took our reservation gave us good directions, and the turns are well marked with signs.
There seems to be one section for RVs, and it's a bit of a hike from that loop (Area D) to the office/store, dump station, or the new shower house, which we were told was very nice, but which we did not use, partly due to its distance from our site. Of course our RV has a shower, and the 30-amp hookup and water at the site made a bathhouse unnecessary for us anyway.
The service staff was very friendly and helpful. They did accidentally give our prepaid site and paperwork to someone else with a similar name. That person obviously didn't read his/her paperwork, because it had our name, address, and phone number on it (luckily, not the full credit card number!). The office clerk apologized for the error and immediately sent someone to go retrieve the paperwork and bring it to us, which he did. Mistakes happen, and I think they did what they could to correct it, so no points off for that.
The reason I rated this an 8 out of 10 is because the RV loop is pretty tight, with a narrow road, and the gravel sites are not very level -- they sloped a bit side to side, and we had to use every block we had and max leg extension to get it level. The trees are very nice for shade, but they made backing in to the site a bit challenging. We disconnected our pick-up tow vehicle and parked it beside the RV; it wouldn't have fit in a line. But the site was wide enough for us to park there.
All in all, it was a very nice place. We were in the off season mid-September, so it was quiet and uncrowded. The weather overnight was nice, and we could open the windows and wake up to the sound of singing birds and the breeze rustling the wildflowers blooming around the site. I would definitely camp here again. - Maggie420

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

We stopped here while traveling US Route 40 (lots of hills and views). The campground is very rural. The entrance and exit are on either sides of a private residence. When you are coming from Route 40, you will get to the entrance before you come to the exit. This is a large and lovely campground. There are quite a few seasonal campsites where decks and landscaping have been added to travel trailers. The campground is clean. The campsites are mostly level - which is a feat considering the slope of the hill that the campground is on. There are cabins and a nice swimming pool. If we were in this area, we would camp here again. - ShoreXplorers

This park is rural, and our stay (on a Monday) was very quiet. Absolutely no road noise here! The park looks well maintained. Most sites are occupied by permanent & seasonal residents, with lots of add-ons like porches, outdoor furniture etc. We have a big rig & tow & it was a little tight getting through the turns in the park, but nothing too serious. Sites are a mix of grass & gravel. The park gave us a very long pull-thru, which was actually two sites combined (but charged us for only one). WiFi was very good (we were near the office).
The only negative for us was no where to park upon check-in. We blocked the entrance gate ( which requires a code) & someone in a car had to wait behind us while we registered. - RockyMountainMama

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

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

Spacious site with partial shade, picnic table and fire ring, electric only, water spigots throughout park to fill freshwater tank. Very close (walking distance) to the small town of Confluence. Park is located directly on the Youghiogheny River, popular with anglers. Verizon and AT&T both worked with fair signal. No over the air TV signal. - don_church

Do NOT take exit 29 off of I-68 in West Virginia, or 281 north to the campground. Very narrow and winding roads with steep grades. Park has paved/gravel roads and gravel sites that are wide with a lot of room between sites. Campground is next to river. Water and power was good, weak to no cell (AT&T). We would stay here again. - kmgulf

Confluence Outflow is next to a dam. It's a typical Corps of Engineers campground with no frills. This is about 20 minutes from Ohiopyle. It has well spaced, flat sites. No AT&T cell service, but Verizon worked fine. - zDale
