6 RV Parks near Morgantown, West Virginia

This is an event center with a large parking lot. Hookups are around the perimeter of the parking lot. When we arrived there were no events and the lot was empty so we parked parallel and therefore had a pull thru. This worked for us as we have a large MH with a tow. All utilities worked fine. Very quite at night. Route 19/24 Chaplin Park Road is narrow and has NOT had the trees trimmed in a long time. We often drove in the middle road and the trees still rubbed on our coach. I am not talking about a few leaves but branches that can damage your coach. Until this is corrected, the access road is not suitable for tall Motorhomes. - Lama79

Camped in a 35 foot fifth wheel in unnumbered back-in site. "Campground" is a large paved parking lot with an island of a few full utility hook-ups at rear of sites. Sites are level with lots of room for tow vehicle. About 18 good over the air TV stations; no WiFi. Parking lot is lit with high utility pole lights until very early morning. Quiet at night. There is a community center at edge of lot that was open until late evening & which has restrooms.. No laundry. Easy I 79 access. - Scottsdale RVers

My son graduated from WVU last weekend. As usual local hotels take advantage of any special events at the University. The event sites were very close and it was great having our camper to entertain friends and family.The camping area is a giant parking lot. All of the utilities worked well and the staff was pleasant. If you need to be in Morgantown this is a convienent place to stay. - Shady Spring

Park is in wooded area and secluded with many trees. Not too much to do. Park was clean and the owners were nice people. Very quite.
Price should be around $35.00. - johnmack

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

This is a good place for an overnight when passing through. I called and told them we would be arriving late and the camp host cheerfully stayed up (till 9PM) when we arrived. The campground was clean, the grass was mowed and there were good gravel roads in the campground. and they gave us a pull through site as we were just passing through. Dump station on the way out. Water and 30 amp service at the site. Nice RV/camping signs were posted from the interstate that led you to the site. Maybe 2 miles from the exit. There is a small truck stop at that interstate exit also.
This is not a resort, but a nice place to stop for the night when passing through. - eb145

We would camp here again. Wi-Fi not advertised and not available. GPS directs to one exit north of exit to use: Davistown Rd exit. The campground can be seen from Interstate. This is a good overnight campground. It is near 24 hour gas & food and easy on/off interstate. When told we were overnight and in route, we got a pull through with WE30S that did not need leveling. Connections are tight. Maybe 10 campers are long term work campers with friendly and helpful people. Staff is great. Bathhouse and laundry are aged but spotless. In 27 days of camping, this was, by far, the best shower. No restrictors, timers, temp governors. Just powerful water hot enough to peel shrimp or cold enough to chill them - as you like it. There is, literally, room for two in the showers with a shower head on either end. This campground is a campground, not trying to be a resort or squeeze another nickel with another fee. Since camp was built the highway expanded adding noise from the highway, which is in sight. From 10: - nothing. They do not claim a thing they do not do well. The park welcomes families but does not have a pool or playground so I did not mark it family friendly, though it is. - Frank Rader

We were driving and started getting tired. We happened to see a camping sign along the interstate and pulled off. I quickly jumped on the internet to see if there were reviews. When we arrived it was small and like the only review I could find. I didn't have to use the facilities because I had my own. The people were friendly and it was great for the night! I would stay there again in passing. - ATerry

This is a very small campground that has been overrun recently by construction workers and their families. That leaves very few spaces for the traveling public. There are 2 "big rig" sites - but beware, the access road is very narrow with a big turn at the bottom. The sites are all very close together. The owners are very nice and try to do what they can to help - but space is very limited. - Cmactraveler

This little campground is West Virginia capitalism at work. Since I am from West Virginia, I am not picking on us "hillbilles." A family has converted some bottom land into a small campground. It has a small rest room and shower facilities. The spaces are all gravel and 30 Amp. Half have sewer connections, but they also have a dump station. This campground is not fancy and getting to it can be a little intimidating to those who do not like "country roads." All that being said, this is an adequate stop off since it is right off I-79. The choices along this stretch of the Interstate are Wal-Mart or here. At least here you have connections. So you have been warned, but this may be the only port in the storm. It is clean and safe. - cheldreth

Well kept and clean park. The sites are a little tight to back in to so those with large rigs may have some issues. It is surrounded by state parks with lots of hiking trails. The parks are all large, hard wood trees and is a joy to walk. I saw biking paths in town as well. There are lots of things to do in the the area and plenty of restaurants for dining if you choose to go out. Roads in the park were a little tight but certainly navigable with my truck and 31 foot trailer. - PhredFromIL

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

We've been at Firehouse RV Campground for almost 3 weeks now and will be here for a few more months. (Working temporarily in the area). Lots could use leveling, but overall not terrible. Great water. There is a bathroom/shower house with card/keys to get in. Also laundry facility. (did not use either of these). My only complaint is the cell & internet service, but this is not the fault of the RV park. Service is lousy all over the area. Quite often, the RV park wifi is even better than our own Mifi. If you're looking for a "garden spot" to stay, this is not it. If you're looking for a manager on-duty to hang out with, this is not the place. This is an adequate RV park, run by a fireman. It is quiet. Sits behind the Fire Station, in between a cemetery and a funeral home, but you're not even aware of these things. Profits go to help the volunteer fire dept. I do not know the nightly rate. $460/month. A lot of longer term/temporary working people here. We have only heard the fire siren 3 or 4 times in the 3 weeks we've been here. Haven't heard a train whistle yet, just the high pitched squeal of the wheels off and on, but nothing that is bothersome. Within less than half a mile there is a small local grocery store, a post office, a small convenience store that sells both gas and diesel fuel. About 10 minutes to I-79 and Waynesburg, which has several restaurants and a Walmart. (Although the Walmart is well hidden and not found when looking on their web page for local Walmarts). Pittsburgh is about 50 miles north. Staying here in a 41' 5th wheel, with 2 vehicles. - Marty O

Never again! Terrible. In the rear parking lot of a firehouse. Siren went off about once an hour all night. Nearby train whistle all day and all night. To get there, the roads were narrow and twisty. Lots of workers (linemen, oil workers, etc.) with their families. Semi-permanent. - mrpeepers

The campground is about eight miles from I-79 through the rolling hills of PA, not a problem getting there but it is not your typical highway campground. The park is located behind and run by the local volunteer fire department and staying here helps support the fire department. Our site was near the end of the lot and slopped some. The loose gravel. slope, and recent rains made it difficult to level but we made do, as it was simply an overnight stop for us. Some sites are paved and more level, there are even some pull-thru sites. There are no facilities or activities as this is a simply an area to park your RV. Many of the sites had long-term residents who are working in the area. - Dave Hole
