No restrooms, showers, etc. were available as advertised. No mention of that at checkin. The two restroom/shower facilities present were locked closed. We only used electric hookup. Unsure if water was even available.

Offer of cash discount with no receipt was fishy.

Would not attempt to enter camp facility in large motor home. Only bad experience in 3-day travel thru this beautiful state. We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

When we called to reserve a site for a one night stopover we asked several questions including do you have any satellite friendly sites? They said yes. When we arrived we were told that there were none that would work. That was true. We were promised a full hook up site. When we arrived we were told that none of the full hook up sites were level. So we agreed to a water and electric site that was supposed to be level. Not so. It was a back-in on the edge of a ravine. I raised the back of the coach as far as I could but we were still nose high. Then I put large rocks behind all the tires to keep out of the ravine. There is no wifi or cable TV. Several "over the air" channels are available. The restrooms are not clean. When I attempted to move the picnic table closer to the coach a rotted top board came off in my hand. Not a place we will stay again. We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

We read some negative reviews on the owners and were concerned. I can't speak of the wife, but the husband was over the top nice and extremely helpful. He gave us a very nice spacious back-in site rather than the smaller pull-thru b/c he knew we would be there for 3 days. He helped my husband move the tow dolly and was very responsive when there was a problem with the 50 amp. Quiet park and nice people. Tight roads for the large RVs, but definitely manageable. The restrooms are in serious need of updating, but they were clean. We did not have to use them as our site had full hook-ups. We would recommend this campground.

On the same road is the Chestnut Ridge Regional Park - it really is a beautiful park with a lovely pond. Definitely visit Cooper's Rock - gorgeous overlook! The Caperton Trail in Morgantown is awesome for bike riding. Morgantown Visitor Center has a wonderful brochure for walking tour of the historic downtown. And the WV Botanic Garden is very nice as well.

We loved the natural grounds, the location and the terrific staff. (Helpful but not hovering). Full hookup in a natural setting!!! We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra day. We would definitely return on another trip. We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

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! We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

A remote campground located in heavily wooded hills. A little pricey for what you get. Access from interstate is on narrow paved road from I-68. Exit #15 and follow signs to campground. Do not use your Garmin or TomTom as they will direct you to a logging road. Gravel interior roads with gravel semi-level sites. Maneuvering can be difficult for larger rigs due to the trees and narrow roads. Sites are well spaced with good access to utilities and all worked properly. A picnic table at each site. TV and Satellite connections did not work at my site due to trees. Verizon cell and data worked in the pull through area. WiFi service was spotty. Showers/restrooms are terrible. The restroom smelled like a pit toilet. Very very quiet with no train, plane or traffic noise. Depending on who is in the office, you will be escorted to your site. Lots of full time folks giving some areas the look of a “trailer park”. Good for an overnight stay. We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is the only campground with full hookups near Morgantown. We were visiting friends so we had no choice. The owners do not keep the place up. The roads are very rough and there are trees everywhere along the roads so it is extremely difficult to maneuver your rig. The bathrooms were not clean. The laundry only has 2 washers and 2 dryers and there are a fair number of full timers so there should be more. Beware that there is no Verizon data coverage. There is Wi-Fi but it only works right by there office not in your rig. The full timers were OK, but the unit across from us had a stuffed sofa sitting outside. Unbelievable. Some of the people who stayed on the weekend were loud and so were their barking dogs All in all we will probably not be back. We would stay somewhere else without full hookups before going back here. We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Sand Springs Campground is a clean, well maintained park. Tent sites are beautiful. RV sites are close together; one site is even in the road, causing traffic to back up down the hill to a different intersection; some larger trailers had difficulty doing this. The person working the desk was very confused about sites and sent several people to places already occupied. At one point, the desk person barely looked up from her newspaper when we asked questions, stating she was just filling in for someone who was ill. Needless to say, we will stay elsewhere in the future, even if it means staying farther from Morgantown in order to get full service sites. For short stays, we'll stay at a local state park. We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

Quiet mountain RV park. We had a long pull through for the night. Wi-Fi was out. TV was good on the antenna. Watch out for logging trucks on the very narrow road to the campground. We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

We enjoyed our stay at Sand Springs Campground. Very friendly staff. CLEAN, generous sized sites. We had full hookups. Site fairly level. Plenty of DTV stations. Wi-Fi only works within about 80 feet of office. VERY IMPORTANT...YOU MUST use I-68 exit 15 to get to the campground. DO NOT use Tom Tom directions as it'll lead you up a 4WD road at the other end. Clean showers, the only thing I would mention is that they have a carpet sample just outside the shower which seemed smelly and thoroughly soaked when I used the shower (25 cents for 9 minutes). I would highly recommend this campground! We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

I stayed at this campground from mid-May through mid-September. There appeared to be some turmoil amongst the office staff - maybe settling into new ownership? I got mixed messages on whether mail could be delivered to the office. I was able to track down 2 of 3 mail packages with one package still MIA. The campground is heavily wooded and roads are narrow. Pulling a trailer through the campground requires strict attention. This is an active logging area - watch for logging trucks on the access road. This is a mountaintop campground, sites are not level. Be sure to bring plenty of levelers. Bathrooms are older and were not as clean as I like. Wi-Fi was available but I didn't use it. Reasonable reception of several over the air TV channels. NO Verizon data coverage in this part of WV. I was able to make/receive Verizon phone calls. My Sprint data service worked reasonably well. Small laundry room was clean and cheap. We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This CG is a fair jaunt from I-68 exit 15. Big rigs need to be careful as the road is narrow leading to the CG. If you are looking for an unfriendly staff, this is the place to camp. There are many signs of a blunt and directive nature which do not portray a friendly atmosphere. You need to get a code for the Wi-Fi from the office -- the staffer didn't give us one at check-in so we had to go back and get it. The roads are gravel and rough. Sites are gravel and NOT level. Nice pool. Another camper told us that you have to pay to use the showers, hadn't seen that since 1980. If you must, use it for one night but not as a destination CG. We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

They forgot to tell us NOT TO GO BY GPS directions when we booked the night. We ended up on single-lane, uphill road with slim options to turn around. With the help of a local resident, we were able to get turned around with some, but minimal, damage to the rig. He said there have been numerous rigs that had to call tow trucks to get them back out of there. Finally arriving late at the park, interior roads were very narrow due to the many trees we had to dodge as we entered & exited our site. Leveling the rig was impossible & laundry room was dirty. Owners were very nice. We camped at Sand Springs Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
