1 Park near Huntington, West Virginia
Apr 2016 - $33.00
The word for this park is eclectic. It is an airport with a skydive outfit with an airport restaurant which used some unused space between the railroad tracks and the airport for put in 30 FHU sites for RVs. There are not a lot of sites for transients, there is no one at the office Monday-Thursday and there is no one on the property during the day. Most sites are 30 amp. I'm sure this would be a different experience on the weekend when there is activity at the airport.
I spoke with the park owner over the phone, was assigned a site which was occupied when I arrived. Another call got me another site. She said she usually got to the property around 5pm but I didn't see anyone by 9pm so I tucked the overnight fee into an envelope and put it in the mail slot at the office. The instructions at the office were to fill out a registration card, but the only thing at the desk outside the locked office was envelopes for money.
I did speak to someone at the cafe that said the owner would probably show up that evening to mow grass and fly one of his planes, but that didn't happen either.
If you're a pilot and you like trains and you're going through here on a weekend, stop. Otherwise, keep going. - jplante4

We stayed here while visiting our daughter for a week. It is convenient to fuel, grocery and shopping at the mall. We called to reserve a spot and the gentleman on the phone gave us a choice to pick from. The sites were level and gravel and full hook-up was available. The wi-fi never worked while we were there and even after notification was not fixed (only reason for the lower rating). No one was ever in the office and I wrote a check and placed in the envelope in the office door (same as the registration slip). The Fly-IN cafe was a great bonus and open on the weekends with excellent food and drink. This is the most convenient campground if staying in the Huntington, WV, Chesapeake/South Point, OH area. We plan to stay here again in the spring. - User340

One of our favorite RV parks but it takes a little understanding when going there. The owners are also busy flying Skydivers, managing a cafe on the property and it's a limited staff. You won't be greeted by an open office and in fact, the office is usually locked. You can find a site, register and slip your envelope through the door. Sometimes you have to search out the manager in order to pay. They seem to rely on the honor system a good part and see few problems. Seems to have a lot of seasonal or long-term RVs in the South row and there are about 10 sites for larger motorhomes between the office and cafe. Spaces are fairly narrow and there are no picnic tables, fire rings, etc, but there's a larger fire ring for the community. This is the home of the West Virginia skydivers and the managers of the park are quick to invite RV guests to parties or functions they are having, I got invited twice to even take a plane ride, which was super. Borders the Ohio River with access from the park, there' s a private runway with small planes, and a train track, but we never saw more than 2 trains a day. Very interesting place, just not fancy. The secret is to get a space with nobody around you and the views to the West are incredible. If units start coming in next to you, you won't see anything. We had a rude couple pull into the park at 4 am and idle their engine for 20 minutes while hooking up. Not the parks fault, just inconsiderate people who don't get it! We would stay here again. Nearby access to many stores several miles away in Barboursville. - elduque
