Pipestem is one of the Great State parks in the country. The staff was very friendly and helpful in letting us drive around and choose the site we wanted. We did notice that many of the sites are not real level so if that matters, you need to be more selective. We were able to get local channels on our antenna and using a dish is a little trickier because of the trees. The best sites are the curved pull-throughs on the last road to the south. Going to Hinton right now was a problem due to extensive roadwork and blasting going on at Bluefield down the hill. They had a special going on during the month we were there, half-price on the sites. We appreciated them telling us about it because it saved a lot of money, and they didn't have to. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Motorhome.

This a great place to stay with a family. The State Park has many things to offer for all ages. There are hiking trails, bike trails, an observation tower, horseback riding, fishing, lake activities and all sorts of games to play for a small fee. They also have an 18 hole golf course along with a par 3 nine hole course. My son and I played the par 3 course and enjoyed it. Our family did the 1 hour horseback ride and while we enjoyed the ride, it was a little bit more geared for the beginner rider. The outdoor pool was closed for the season, but the indoor lodge pool was available for a fee to RV campers. While there is no Internet at the RV campsites, you can use the Internet at the lodge for free. The lodge has a game room with various activities for a small fee. The wildlife was abundant during our stay. The deer are everywhere and very used to people and will allow you to get close to them. During our stay we saw a bear cub (did not see mama, but also did not wait to see her), turkeys, a muskrat and the other animals you would expect to find. The views are breath taking throughout the entire park and the Fall leaf colors certainly added to it. We stayed here in a 42 ft fifth wheel for 10 days. We had previously stayed in West Virginia State Parks over the years in cabins, but this was our first RV experience. We are planning to return next May. The on site staff was extremely helpful and nice. The only negative was that many of the RV sites were not quite big enough for us and many of them were not level. We did find a level one and are taking note of other level ones for our return trip. The atmosphere of the RV campsite was good as the sites while close to one another, were not on top of one another. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very lovely treed campground with about as many amenities available in the park as anyone could wish for. Sites are mostly level. AT&T cell phone reception was good. Trails were wet and uneven. Rate reflects senior discount. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Motorhome.

This was our first time staying in West Virginia and we could not have picked a better place. Aside from the endless list of amenities the campground was well maintained and clean. Check out the website for all of the stuff they have. We enjoyed riding the aerial tram, the nature center, and I was able to get a couple of rounds of golf in. We would stay here again. Probably not ideal for an overnight stay because it is approximately 15 miles from the interstate. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice state park. Lots of activities, lodges, etc. Our site was not level so had a hard time leveling the motorhome. Would stay here again. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Motorhome.

Choose site carefully as many are not level, front to back especially. It is a beautiful park and very well kept. No alcohol allowed so be aware. Many activities for both children and adults. Finally a park that provides each site with a garbage can. We enjoyed our stay and may return but not in the near future. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the best campgrounds we’ve experienced. Sites are average to fairly large in size. Most are level. There are 4 sites on the same level of the bath house that are reserved for handicapped. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Couldn’t ask for much better. The bathhouse is modern and heated, which is nice on the cool WV mornings and nights. They are cleaned daily. The resort offers lodging of all types, everything from hotel to tent camping and numerous activities that include horseback riding, hiking, swimming etc. We plan to return to this campground often and would highly recommend it. During the period between Memorial Day and Labor Day I wouldn’t try this place without having a reservation. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We are HDT'ers and though this park is easy to get into and around in, there was only a couple of full hookup sites that we could get into. #24 fit us but had no patio area and was directly above the loud pumping station. Digital TV was OK on 4 stations but no ABC. Gorgeous park but laid out 40 years ago by a non-camping superintendent so it is a nice fit for Pop-ups most everywhere. Site 24 was the only one that we could fit the whole rig and Towd onto. Almost all sites have leveling issues, so take lots of leveling blocks. Hwy WV 20 is kind of tight in a few places and very curvy (from either direction) but approaching from the west is a little better I am told. It was helpful to have a pilot car out ahead of the rig coming up here. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Extremely well run, well appointed and clean. Sites are spaced generously with an abundance of trees giving us an aura of privacy. Only downside is that many of the sites are a bit small for a large motor home and/or too slanted for proper leveling. There are many things to do here; don't miss the gourmet restaurant at the lodge. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is pristine. The property it sits on is huge. The pool is not walking distance but it's quite big and kept in excellent condition. Our campsite was a pull-through with the electric on the other side, but we had plenty of cord in our camper. I could access the internet with my telephone from my site. We noticed on some sites you can set up DirecTV. If you need a pet sitter, there is an excellent one very close to the campground. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Wonderful park! We only were able to spend one night here but will absolutely be back. Campsites are shaded and private. Sites were paved and for the most part level. There were several pull through site also. This park is amazing. Biking, hiking, swimming, fishing, good restaurants. Upkeep is top notch. I could easily see spending a week here.

We found this campground had about everything one could want. Biking trails, hiking trails, mini-golf, par 3 course, 18 hole championship course, huge swimming pool, nice restaurant in lodge nearby. We are going back and soon. Small stores nearby and Princeton has everything 20 miles away. We camped at Pipestem Resort State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

At first I was very concerned when the electricity and water were on opposite sides of the site. Besides that, we have no complaints. In fact, the electric box on the door side made for a nice awning anchor and cup holder. Just be aware that some folks may need an extension cord. Most of the full hookup sites are level enough that it will not be a problem. Many of the electric only sites are quite unlevel - some to the point of being unusable. Except for the very cold pool, there is lots for the kids to do. We stayed here several nights and would definitely return when back in the area. Very nice playground.

This State Park is truly a find, a real resort offering many amenities. The campground offers many private and spacious sites (some are not) but that is common, not all can be perfect. Hiking is GREAT, dining is super, the golf is fabulous, pool is nice but still think campers/RVers should not have to pay fee. The tram to the bottom of the gorge is a must see and if you have time to dine there, do so! For the minimal camping fee, this resort/park offers so much, we would stay again, just longer.
