We stayed at this park for the great view of the Ohio River, to visit the Fiesta dinnerware factory just up the road, and for a quick business side trip to Pittsburgh. (There are absolutely no Pittsburgh area campgrounds with decent reviews.) Like almost all the campgrounds in this area, it is mostly inhabited by quiet and well--behaved permanent or seasonal units, with the prime sites reserved for visiting RVers. Our site directly overlooked the river and the many pushboats and barges quietly passing by. The entire campground is grass, with ruts and connections to mark the sites. No problem. There may be mud when it is rainy, but we had great weather. There is no manager on site during the day, but she was here eating dinner and awaiting our late arrival. When we needed a power cord extension, she showed up promptly with one. And the next day she was free with information about good restaurants (there aren't many) and an alternate route to Pittsburgh. Like every campground in the region, there is no cable TV and no local stations available. Some sites have sewer, and there is a convenient dump station. There is a very small playground, but in general I would say the campground is not designed for kids. We found it to be very quiet and peaceful. This could be because school is in session - we make a point of traveling when that is the case. There is plenty of room for large rigs. We camped at Kennedy Marina & Campground in a Motorhome.

Casa de Emanuel in nearby East Liverpool was excellent. East Liverpool can be reach by a toll bridge near the park ($1 round trip) or a larger bridge a few miles away.

The campground is right on the Ohio River and there is a boat launch and docks. The road in is gravel and you cross a train track (train doesn't run at night). Check in was fast and friendly. The majority of sites are full time and well kept up. Our site was a pull through but just barely. We were right next to the bathhouse and pulling out was a bit tricky. We were able to leave the tow-dolly attached. Site was all grass and level. We were parallel to the river so sitting outside was nice and peaceful. We had full hook-ups with 50 amp The water connection was a little far, about 30 feet. Water pressure was good. WiFi wasn't good the first night but they put in a new system the next day and it worked great. We stayed June 7-9, 2017. We paid $39.22 a night with no discount. Across the river is East Liverpool, with shopping and restaurants. Just down the road from the campground is the Laughlin China Company where Fiestaware is made. They have a retail store and be sure to check out their scratch and dent room - great prices. We camped at Kennedy Marina & Campground in a Motorhome.

At the very northern tip of West Virginia, Kennedy Marina & Campground has a generally nice setting (no shade at all, though), a lot of Canada geese were hanging around, and we got a nice grass site right by the river. Most of the other campers -- workers and seasonal, probably -- didn't have it as good, with many of them close together and at least half probably couldn't see the river. We have a tiny motorhome but tow a car, so it's always nice to get a pull-through (esp. for a 1-nighter) so we didn't have to disconnect the car. Our one night stay was very nice, with a view of the river and the trees and hillside of Ohio on the other side. Hookups were good and though we had to share water with another site, it was not a problem. WiFi was too weak to be useful, but we got a good Verizon 4G signal for our MiFi. The bathroom and laundry were dated, but mostly clean; the bathroom did not have a shower. They are closed on Monday, but we called and they came fairly quick and were very plesant. We camped at Kennedy Marina & Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall a nice park with friendly owners and fellow campers. Sites along the river in the above section were great. I loved looking out over the river and watching the barges. Sites are fairly tight and the Wi-Fi was non-existent. Therefore the reason for an 8. Our rig is 40' long. We camped at Kennedy Marina & Campground in a Motorhome.

Stopped here for a couple of days while at mountaineer race track just down the road. Stayed right on the river so had a lovely view with geese every morning. Everything worked well, the management was beyond nice and helpful. I got really lost on the way in and she stayed on the phone the entire time to get me to the park. Perfect location for mountaineer. Good verizon cell. Everything worked. If you have a boat you are right there too. We camped at Kennedy Marina & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed our stay at this quiet out of the way campground. They offer a boat launch and a fishing pier right on the Ohio River. The bathrooms and shower houses are the cleanest and best kept I've ever seen at a campground. The owners are very friendly and willing to help with anything they can. Most of the campers here are seasonal renters who come on weekends to enjoy the river. We camped here for 2 months while working at a nearby power plant. I was working night shift and had absolutely no problem with noise of any type during the day. My wife says it was the same during the night while I was gone. We will definitely stay here again. The rate above is the daily rate, we were charged $550 per month, including all utilities. We camped at Kennedy Marina & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
