Basic campground, beautiful lake, gravel pad, good utilities. There must be a leak with the water, there was a lot of mud and puddles in the grassy area. The pad was a bit short for our 30' motorhome, we had to park at the road edge. The bathrooms need an update and some carpentry work. Otherwise a nice place. Peaceful and quiet. There is a beautiful pond for fishing. We camped at Rippling Waters Church Of God Campground in a Motorhome.

The 4 miles of road to get to the campground were hair-raising. Narrow, twisty, curvy, hilly, and the constant threat of oncoming traffic! But once we got there it was great. We were given a pull through site by the pond. There were swans, geese, and ducks. There is a beautiful little chapel on the far shore of the pond. Very picturesque. Full hook-ups, friendly people, a real shang-ri-la. I'd recommend Rippling Waters. We camped at Rippling Waters Church Of God Campground in a Motorhome.

As the other reviews have stated, this is an odd campground. While somewhat scenic, it is primarily seasonal or permanent residents and there are only a handful of sites for overnight guests and only 5-6 pull-through sites. Ours was level and the utilities typical.

While we had a reservation and called to confirm, our site had just been taken by another guest. The camp manager was able to catch them befor they set up so we could have the last PT as confirmed.

There is no AT&T service at the pull-throughs and you must walk up the hill to the lake to get 1 or 2 bars.

You are 4 miles or so off the highway and while we weren't concerned about safety, we were happy to drive out of there the next morning.

There aren't many choices in the area. Next time we'll probably time out our day to be able stay elsewhere North or South. We camped at Rippling Waters Church Of God Campground in a Motorhome.

Be sure to make a reservation and call to confirm day of. As a backup, there is Tamarack to the south and several Walmarts to the North on I-77 should you get there and your site isn't available.

We stayed one night in a 50 amp full hookup pull-thru site that was long and level. Fresh gravel had just been spread out on our site. Campground has lots of seasonal and permanent residents that had most of the shaded sites. Our site was open to the sky. Utilities are in the middle and water pressure was strong. No dog park but there were plenty of places to walk the dogs. It's dark and quiet at night so we had a great night's sleep. Owners were very helpful and accommodating. Campground is 4 miles off the interstate on narrow, winding country roads, especially when you get on Middle Fork Road, where there are about 3-4 switchbacks with blind curves. Also if you have a big and tall rig, some of the trees have low branches. They're a PA park and also give discounts to military and veterans.

As others have said, you have to drive down a winding, narrow country road to get to the campground. The people are friendly and check in was easy. They had someone lead us to our site. All the hookups were easy to locate and close to together. There wasn't any shade at our site, but there are trees close by. We were able to get some TV channels with the antenna, as well as the satellite. AT&T cell service non-existent, AT&T Wi-Fi hot spot was hit or miss, mostly miss, but we were able to get text messages. We camped at Rippling Waters Church Of God Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a Passport America park, and the PA book lists it under Kenna, Trailer Life lists it under town of Romance, and my receipt said Kenna. it is about 20 mi north of Charleston WV. Signs of the exit just say Rippling Waters Campground. $30 rate; we paid $15 as PA rate for a nice long FHU 50 A site. It is off of Exit 116 off I-77 about 3 miles down, road into park is blacktop not very side but fine for large RVs. Some are seasonal sites, overnight sites are pull-through. This is a nice quiet, peaceful park, very clean, small lake with some boat rentals, fishing. There is a small pond, also pool, laundry, bath houses, some cabins, lodge, conference center with dining hall, gazebo, a small chapel by the lake. They have Sunday services in the chapel and also have weddings there. It would be a perfect place for a fall setting as the fall colors there would be great. Beautiful park. We will definitely stop here again when in the area. Roads into park look like they were recently redone with new blacktop. We camped at Rippling Waters Church Of God Campground in a Motorhome.

We stumbled on this excellent campground while traveling through West Virginia. It is about 3 miles off the interstate using exit 116 and the road is narrow and curvy as you would expect in the mountains. The county road splits the park in half but there is not a lot of traffic so not a problem. There isn't much to do here and the place is full of seasonal campers. Shopping is 20-30 minutes away depending on which way you go. There are only a few sites for those traveling. Sites are gravel with plenty pf room between them. FHU utilities are solid. No cable and my guess is no over the air TV but our Tailgater worked fine. We got decent Verizon 4G signal with our Wilson booster. So why do I rate this so high? It is peaceful and quiet. Nestled in the mountains with a beautiful small white church and nice pond complete with Lucy the resident swan and several ducks. Just a great place to kick back and chill and thats what we did for a week. We also lucked out and got a site with the pond and church right out our front door. We loved it and would come back in a heart beat if in the area. We camped at Rippling Waters Church Of God Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Shopping in Charleston or Ripley. Take a tour of the West Virginia Museum and Capital building in Charleston. It is all free and very informative. The museum is well done. Have you ever had a picture talk to you in a museum?

One of the quietest parks I have ever stayed. A beautiful setting on two ponds. Though the county road goes right through the center of the campground there is virtually no offensive noise and our site was the close and right next to the road. I would have stayed here much longer if only there was WiFi available. Even ATT cell service was spotty so using the Iphone HotSpot was not an option. If it had WiFi I probably would have given a Ten rating. If Internet access is not important to you then I would suggest that you don't miss this park.

The drive to the park is long, narrow, curvy and filled with low overhanging trees. Low tree limbs in the park also attempted to green stripe our RV. Office staff was nice. There are many seasonal campers. Our site was in the pull through section. It had gravel drive and some green space between sites. Park is very quiet except for barking dogs and scenic. Probably would not camp again because of difficult drive for a long RV. We camped at Rippling Waters Church Of God Campground in a Motorhome.

The road to the campground is narrow and with a few small hills but you can get there with no problems as long as you go slow. The pull-thru sites are very large and flat. The GC was very clean and quite. The grounds of the CG are very nice. It is only about 20 miles to Charleston from here and is the closest place we could find. It's location is good for seeing the area. We would stay here again if we were passing through because the pull-thru sites are large enough that you don't have to unhook your tow.

Yup: the road to the CG is narrow, windy, but well paved. DW closed her eyes a couple of times, but it really is not a problem traveling at a slow rate. The pull-through sites are fine, not much space between sites. Stone surface, some grass. They just put sewer line to the pull-through area. We did pick up some stations on our antenna and the Wi-Fi was fine. Overall a nice overnight stop. We camped at Rippling Waters Church Of God Campground in a Motorhome.

We camped here for a conference in Charleston, WV. There are not any campgrounds in Charleston that would accommodate our RV. This is a pleasant campground with a couple of lakes and a beautiful little chapel on one of the lakes. Cell phone service was marginal and Wi-Fi was only available at the office. The office was only partly manned so contact the staff was difficult. It is about a 30 minute drive to Charleston. Getting to the campground is a challenge. There is a narrow 2 lane (?) road that winds through the hills. There are many tree limbs that will hit the RV if you are not careful. It is a smoke free, alcohol free campground.

I read all the comments about the road to this park and almost passed it by. But as it is really the only campground in the area ( north on rt 77) and it was late afternoon we went for it...Boy, am I glad we did! This is a beautiful campground , beautiful grounds with a pond and a little chapel. Most sites are wooded although ours (a large pull-through ) was in a field setting. I think the comments about the road are a little over exaggerated . Yes, it is a narrow winding road , but it is paved and in good condition. You do have to be careful of the occasionial car coming the other way. We were just there for the night and had a pull through site that was easy in and easy out... This is really a nice campground and I would definitely stay again. We camped at Rippling Waters Church Of God Campground in a Motorhome.

Three miles off the highway but it's a nice overnight stay. Very friendly staff. This is a Christian camp so certain codes of behavior are in place. If you have faith you will love the peaceful setting. A picturesque chapel on a small lake with water fountains. It's pretty during the day, but breathtaking at night with lights shining on the chapel and fountains. We felt in the presence of God. Also home to lots of fulltimers. We enjoyed our one night layover here. Would go back. We camped at Rippling Waters Church Of God Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful park with a couple of lakes and fountains. The road to it is a little tight and curvy but we managed it slowly with a 40' motorhome. We could not get any kind of TV signal or Wi-Fi but didn't see that as a problem as we were here only 2 nights. The site we had was kind of isolated but the front yard was a lake. We would stay here again. We camped at Rippling Waters Church Of God Campground in a Motorhome.
