7 RV Parks near Sandyville, West Virginia
Aug 2014 - $25.00
This is a good camp. Site was reasonably level. Electric & water were both good. There is a bridge to cross and a hill to climb but not a problem for us. The pond has fish as we saw adults and children pulling out catches. Bath house was clean and has a combo lock. There is a commercial quality play area for children. The Wi-Fi never quit. We planned on 3 nights stayed extra. Owners are helpful. The town of Ripley is close and has shopping and restaurants. - tuffee1

The bathrooms seemed pretty modern, definitely clean, and coded lock for security. The trash area was a little far from the sights. Lots of friendly people out fishing and walking. Birds all over the place, swooping over the water and chirping. We would go back if we get down that way again. - WanderRVR

We stayed here on our way south from Michigan. We found this to be a scary place - lots of locals staying in not-so-nice RVs. The group next to us were definitely "on" something, once they came in from work (or watever). The restrooms here are about the worst we've ever encountered in 7 years of RV travel. We locked all doors, went to bed, and pulled out very early in the morning. We would never stay here again. - MaineDon

Forked Run (pronounced "fork-ed") is in another time. It's away from cell phones and urban sprawl. The park offers few creature comforts. Basic electricity, latrines, old and perpetually wet shower houses. Yet where can you watch a huge barge drift down the Ohio River? Or catch sight of bald eagles? The park is lovingly maintained. I have never come across a more caring and dedicated staff. On a holiday, they drove to each site and made sure campers knew a big storm was approaching. Forget the game boys, kids here splash and swim at an idyllic beach, play frisbee golf, cornhole and rent boats for the lake. We bought delicious local tomatoes. It's unlikely there is anyplace to eat out, or even get groceries nearby. We needed gasoline, and found a BP about 30 minutes of semi-windy road with an ice cream stand that sold excellent cones, malts and food. The big warning is for big rigs. I don't know. Maybe there's a way to come in from the west or southwest, but OH 124 has hills and tight turns with narrow sections. Patience and sound equipment recommended. We pulled a popup (which we saw plenty of at camp area 2) and I held my breath on one occasion while sensing the Ohio River was "right there" and no guard rail. This is only a few miles, but care is needed along OH 124 from US 50. Drive it in the day. On the other hand, a very nice boat launch to the Ohio River is nearby, so skilled people do this all the time. Be wary of your GPS from Parkersburg. Take US 50 all the way to 124. We stayed only one day but will definitely return to hike and explore. - arborvitaes

Extremely well-maintained and manicured. Sites were grassy and shady for the most part and very spacious. Permanent campers were very nice people. Stopped by and welcome us... very friendly without being intrusive. Only 2 rows of campers .... rivers-edge is for permanent guests ... but you can still see the river and there is a large 'marina' are from which you can fish ... HUGE catfish. Wonderful playground with trampoline and swings. Very serene and peaceful. Slept like a baby... also, fun to watch the riverboats and barges go up and down the Ohio River. - kward

A very well maintained and attractive CG right beside the Ohio river. Directly across the river from a power plant. Staff super friendly and helpful. No credit cards accepted. Pay by cash or personal check. Entrance road is long, gravel, and 1-lane with no "passing lane". No overhead obstacles except power line about middle of grass sites (away from river), about 13½ feet up. Sites along river are long-term so transients are across the little gravel road in the grass. Sites are super-big, very spacious, level with pedestal at mid-rig. FHU-30/50. Fires permitted at some sites. Well-water, pressure and taste okay. Office store has snacks, ice cream, soft drinks and is an antique store run by the owners. No RV supplies. Restrooms at far southeast end of CG but I didn't check them out. No propane sales. Nice playground. Laundry is a single washer and dryer in basement of office, $5.00 per load. No other amenities (pool, spa, etc). No Wi-Fi. Verizon cell coverage is "1 bar". - StephenK

One of my favorite campgrounds. Although no waterfront sites are available, you are located on the river bank overlooking the Ohio River. View of Southern sky for satellite access is limited, for Dish TV and Hughes internet. - Rex Carlyle

A small but very friendly campground. Some of the nicest people I have ever meet. Just your everyday Mom and Pop campground where you become family. I would give this place an A+++ just for how out of the way they go to please you. Wish all campgrounds where this accommodating. Two fishing lakes stock with Bass, Catfish,Blue gill,Crappie. LP fill on site as well as cheap firewood. - Ty M
Dec 2016 - $1.00
The past two years rate went up $170, paid $150 extra to have gravel on lot. There are no shade trees. Pond for kids to swim in, filled with stagnate river water. Zip line $8.00 to go 200 feet. Myself and several seasonal campers left due to unprofessional actions of owner. I can't give this campground a good review! - Bill McCoy
May 2015 - $35.00
Fairly new park with mostly seasonal sites. It backs up to the Ohio river where there is a lot of barge traffic to watch. The sites are gravel and the roads are gravel. There is good Verizon coverage, but no park internet. The rate seems to be a little high, for the area and amenities.
The owner is very accommodating and they are putting a lot of work into the park. This is a less traveled area of Ohio and West Virginia, with a lot of history. If you are in this area, I would recommend this park. - retiredfields

This is a "membership" seasonal park, not well suited for a one or two night stay. Very crowded with small sites and lots of cars and golf carts make it difficult to maneuver a 30' trailer. However, it's in a beautiful country setting, four fishing ponds, indoor pool and activities for kids. Neighbors partying until after midnight spoiled it for us. - Sirsea

This park is in a beautiful setting, lots park & trail areas. Disappointed the pool was not open looked like a lovely facility. Sites in our section (3) were close together. Services were accessible, however the electrical was near the front of our site, lucky we had enough cord. Site was level. - Our-Wandering-Casa

The park was quiet and looked quite well maintained.
There were maintenance people working all around the park.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. - Larry Burkett

We have stayed at this campground several times. All the other times we had good sites. This time our site was not the most desirable because it was shorter than our trailer/truck, though we did not end up unhitching. We did stick out a bit but we were not on a busy road. All services were fine except Internet as it was too far from the main line. The chapel is really charming next to the pond. - twotimes

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. - rvrose

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. - McGarrert50
