5 Parks near Northfork, West Virginia

The resort is extremely nice and well designed, but made up of mostly camper cabins with a limited number of RV sites. Most are fairly level with good WIFI, electric, water and sewer. Problem is, they don't allow for complete clean up of your ATV/UTV, by limiting you only to flush and clean the radiator at their designated location. The second biggest problem and warning for those with large 5th wheels, toy haulers and Big Rigs (40ft +), is crossing the railroad off the hay 52, onto the approach road to the campground. Our 45ft RV got stuck high center on top of the tracks, only to have a train approaching and the crossing guards come down on the roof of the RV, forcing us to power thru at all cost. Tore off part of the exhaust, and dragging the trailer hitch across the pavement. Our neighbor parked 2 sites down, with their 42 foot 5th wheel, also experienced the same problem crossing the railroad tracks, damaging both of their rear leveling jacks (bent). There is a back way into the CG, but anything over 40ft should pay careful review the switch backs with a climbing and descending turn causing the rear and front to bottom out on the pavement. - Mullet Republic LLC

Great park no problems at all. This is mainly for ATV enthusiasts. It is very remote location in West Virgina mountains located right on the Hatfield- McCoy trail system (Indian Ridge Trail). Make sure to follow directions to campground from their website or you will end of on roads you do not want to be on. They say they have a restaurant 2 miles down the road but it was never open while we were there so bring your own food because nearest Wal-Mart is 20 miles away. - LEE H

Great ATV park direct access to Hatfield McCoy trails. If you aren't into ATV's or dirtbikes best to avoid this campground. Vehicles on the move till wee hours. - Danny Brown

Beautiful wooded area in the southern part of WV. Lots, while without water, are deeply shaded in the wooded area. Restrooms/showers can be a hike if you don't get close and water from the shower heads in the women's restroom ran constantly all the time we were here keeping the bathroom floor constantly very wet. VERY few lots would take the big rigs and all wooded lots are a challenge to back into (uphill and turning). Swim area not within walking distance of the camping area, necessitating quite a drive. - cmclark

We were really disappointed with this WV state park. Most of the electric sites that we could fit in (35'), were quite unlevel and even with blocks and jacks, couldn't level it out. There was a dog at one of the campsites that barked for 4 hours, and nothing was done. There are some nice hiking trails, and a fun golf course. The pool is not close by and they charge $3 a person even if you are staying in the park. We will not go back. - Patti A

Though quite remote, this is a very nice, quiet park that's good for families. The campground is several miles away from the main park facilities (lodge, pool, golf course). There's a small playground, and hiking trails are in the campground area itself. Half the sites have electric (30 amp), and there are three pull-through sites. About half the sites are under trees and half in the open. None of the sites have water or sewer, so be prepared to fill up at the campground entrance before going to your site. There's a small playground, and hiking trails are in the campground area itself. Firewood is available at the small campground office/store. We found the staff to be very courteous and helpful. If you want a peaceful vacation, this is it! - ficodek

Stayed in a electric only site. Camp ranger greeted us and was very helpful, even pointing out what to see in the park.
Our site was large enough for the MH and towed. It was level and paved. Sites are spread out and private. Showers were clean, with massage heads and lots of hot water. Didn't use the laundry.
A great place, wish we could have stayed longer. - Brian & Corky

Road to the Park is off the Toll road and was signed well. No one at the office, only phone number, parked in our reservation spot and called. They came later with local info. Area is quiet and plenty of room. We were put in a full hook-up spot we didn't know was available, great since we were staying 8 days. Okay laundry, but 2 dryers out-of-order. - gosee

Site was pretty private and had plenty of room, easy to back into and pretty level. Bath house was pretty dated and not kept very clean although the shower was good size and private. One toilet in the ladies room was broken and not repaired for the 10 days we were there. Has some Verizon service, no AT&T and no OTA tv although we got good dish network on site 6. The camp ground WIFI was very good. Park was very quite on weekdays but got pretty crowded on the weekend. Very easy access from I77. - Crottys

What a beautiful park! It covers 4,050 acres through the beautiful Bluestone River Gorge. The park got its name from a common, local, shrub: pipestem also known as narrowleaf meadowsweet, historically used for making pipe stems. There are 2 lodges in the park, one has a large conference center, and the other is only accessible by an aerial tramway to the bottom of the gorge. In addition to an RV park, there are 26 fully equipped wood cabins, and an area set aside strictly for tent camping. There's not only a par-3 golf course, there's also a championship golf course on the property. Several restaurants are onsite at both lodges; horse stables, a nature center, hiking paths, cross country ski trails, and other recreational activities are available. The nature center, featuring displays of native plants and animals, also includes the Harris Homestead, a reconstructed 1900s period historic house museum and meat house. An amphitheater is also available for concerts, storytelling, and local theater productions. As you can see, there's never a shortage of things to do here! A weekly schedule of events is posted so anyone in the park has an opportunity to take part in any of them. Many sites are shaded (some more than others). Our site (#29) was open but close to trees and adequate for our 32' fifth-wheel trailer. It was an angled back-in site with ample room for the back in maneuver. The campground restroom facilities were adequate and clean (we did not use showers). During our short 3-nught stay here we took advantage of some hiking trails, a motorcycle ride through some beautiful country and the "Wings of Wonder" presentation at the McKeever Lodge and Conference Center. Although our stay was short we made the most of what this clean, well-managed, park has to offer. - RVNomads-Cummings and goings

For a state park, this was probably one of the most beautiful parks we have stayed in. The camping area is really laid out to accommodate trailers & 5th wheels, & I think our 42 ft. class A was a little bit of an over-kill. Maneuvering the lanes to our spot was pretty tight, but manageable. Be aware that their pull-thrus are semi-circular, with water faucet & sewer tap on the driver's side & electric box on the passenger side (so had to reel out quite abit of electric line and pass under coach to the plug). Other than that, utilities were good.
The property was developed and opened around 1972 and is a little dated, but clean. The park must have been absolutely incredible for the time period. How the state legislation appropriated that much money for a state park of this magnitude is impressive.
Lots to do: horse back riding, golf, disc golf, hiking trails, tennis, swimming pool. The pity of all of this is that other than Pipestem, West Virginia does not have many other campgrounds that can comfortably accommodate large class A coaches, with full hook-ups & 50 amp service. West Virginia is a beautiful state, but missing out. - Smooth Running

Such a lovely park and so much to do. A family could enjoy an entire vacation here. Surrounded by mountains and tall trees. There is a Tram to take you down to the river. 3 Lodges and each has a dining room. There is golf, summing pool, lake for canoes/fishing. Our space was tight but we enjoyed it. Next time we will stay in a pull through rather than the back-in. - Newbet
