6 Parks near Springfield, West Virginia

First time at Milleson's and on the 4th of July weekend. There are lots of lease sites here but the sites around us were very nice people. We stayed riverfront with electric only for 4 nights with 2 other trailers. Bathrooms are old but they try to keep them clean (hard to do on a holiday weekend). The stars were plentiful and the eagle's were soaring overhead. - coper2k

Passport America park with no restrictions on use of discount. Access road is 3 miles of hilly, winding, wooded gravel road that is sometimes one lane wide. Park is part of a working cattle ranch. Interior roads are rough and need work. Not all sites are numbered, but site map is accurate and easy to follow. The park is about 70% permanent trailer/camper sites. Since it is the end of the season, there aren't many people here during the week. We have been here for 10 days because it is quiet and peaceful. Large shade trees, but our site backs up to an open field. Satellite access is not a problem. We have phone with Verizon and are able to get a signal, but sometimes the signal is not perfect. The water has been unreliable - sometimes clear and sometimes brown. We were told it had a high iron content and was chlorinated. We use bottled water, but campground water is okay for showers. Campground has a laundry that needs updating. the regular sized washers and driers are not working but there is a commercial sized washer and dryer that worked well. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. We have enjoyed our stay here. - cherlark

Forgot in Previous Posting to mention that the water was of very poor quality. Yellow Colored and Low Pressure. The owners dog was one of those running loose with no one nearby and we came across droppings in our walks. - lkthaler

Confusing signs. When you get off exit, DO NOT follow signs to State Park. Follow signs to Campground instead. Otherwise you will end up in State Park instead of campground.
No warning signs. DO NOT try to use the dump station before entering gate. The u-turn is too tight for big rigs!
Our surge protector said that there were slight grounding and reverse polarity issues at our power pedestal.
Checkout is 1 PM. Strong AT&T signal. Do not arrive at dark, no lights.
Something for everyone, lodge, spa, dining, casino, golf, hunting, hiking, beach, etc. Great park for friends to get together. - univmd

This was our first trip in Maryland's Western Mountains and we found it quite beautiful. This State Park also includes a large casino resort hotel, but this was far away from the campsites and not noisy. We did agree with others that the signs for the campgrounds needed more signs. Coming down the hill, toward the resort, the campgrounds are to the right. As you travel to the end of the lake, there's a neighborhood up ahead, and a large parking lot by the lake. They need another sign telling you to keep driving into the housing area. The campground turnoff is further down. We were looking all over the parking lot for it before I disconnected the car and discovered it. Although we saw a few big rigs, we wouldn't recommend this for a large rig. We had a 40 footer, and in the Ash loop, space 9 was a great one, and we were in 15 which took everything we could do to get in and out safely. Lots of room once in the pull out. Very dark and heavy trees all through this camping area. With the beautiful lake nearby, but not visible, I wish they had some nice open campsites with the big views that can be had in this valley. Trash is deposited at the gate in huge dumpsters with stairs that climb up to the door, that compress the garbage and require you to turn a key to unlock the doors. Don't know what kind of bears they have here, that merits such a fortress dumpster. - elduque

We stayed in the Ash loop (site #2), which was quite level. Sites are fairly private with a lot of trees between most sites. 30 amp only, several water spigots throughout the loop, dump station at entrance. Nice trail around the lake and up on the mountain. Firewood bundles available for $6. We came for the hiking and the casino which is IN the park, about 5 minutes from the campground. Currently the bathhouse in this loop is out of commission due to a lightning strike. Very quiet park even though our loop was full. My only complaint as the camp office opened 15 minutes after they were supposed to, so there were about 12 people waiting in line to check in. Easy access off of I-68. I plan on staying here again. - Doc Foster

I guess that they call it Hidden Springs because the water table must be just below the ground as the area was extremely wet. The bath houses were run down as were some of the permanent sites. With another campground just down the road, this campground should just close. We will not stay here again. - tonymaldonado

Sites very unlevel. Luckily we have boards left over from our trip to Canada with us that we did not use and could use them to level the motorhome. The air system tried to level it, but no way even with the board, it was still out of level some. Kids all over with no supervision, I almost hit one when he pulled out in front of me on a bike with his parents right there. Sites close together and the fire rings which were used, and made it smoky. Lots of trees kept the smoke in. Why do people have to have fires, they stink and you smell like them until you bath. Also there are noisy radios even though CG rules say no. We could not believe 50AMP. Dump was hard to get to: had to drive around the CG to get to it. NO DISCOUNTS. - Sherib

Enjoyed our stay here, some sites look unlevel but ours was fine. The grandkids had a ball at the stocked pond. Full hookups, quiet and shady sites. The beautiful Rocky Gap State Park and Lake are nearby. - lostagain

This campground is far off the beaten path. The drive is 5 miles down a narrow and winding road. The campground is clean and is mostly used by locals who keep a seasonal trailer there. We stayed in a 25' travel trailer and I can't imagine anything larger negotiating the drive or the campground. But if you are passing thru and want to get off the beaten path, this is the place for you. It was wooded and quiet. - sara158

We stayed here from Thursday to Sunday. The sites were wide and clean in the woods. The staff was great from check in to check out. We will come back. - southerncreed57

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The office staff was very friendly and they had a nice pool and playground, but this place still left much to be desired. This campground has very little sites for transients and most of the 200+ sites are for permanent trailer residents. The sites also have very little privacy and we had to back our trailer in facing the main road loop. There was a lot of traffic noise due to the major road that was located behind our site, and the loud trucks, ATVs, and golf carts cruising the transient loop. Although the two pools and playground afforded some time away from the campsite, there really wasn't much room or privacy to enjoy our site. From crying babies to listening to vehicles drive around all night, you would think they would at least try to enforce the quiet hours. Granted you can't really stop a crying baby but there's a problem when you can see all your neighbors clear as day, camping around you. Unfortunately the only time we saw any staff was upon checking in or when we had to go to the store. By the look of the bathrooms, the staff wasn't around to clean them up as well. They were dirty and had very little privacy in both men and women showers. Communal in the mens and no changing stall for the women. They did have some activities planned for the holiday weekend but when the actually day came, no one was on staff. This meant that the store and pool weren't opened. So the day in which most people enjoy the first weekend of the pool being open: nobody was here to let people use the two pools. Too bad because it would have been nice to take a dip when the temps hit 90 degrees. Overall we tried to make the best of it, but we will not be returning to this campground. PS: The 6 miles it takes to get to this campground off the interstate, is a very curvy and mountainous road. Plan on taking it slow. - jackey_q

I wasn't sure what to expect when I made a 2 night reservation at The Cove. I had read mixed reviews And my nephew and my girlfriend, who both accompanied me on this trip, were not that impressed. However, I saw a diamond in the rough here. Below are my pros and cons:
Pros- Sportsman's Paradise. If you shoot, fish, ATV, hike, jeep or snow tube, this place is for you. Pristine settings between 2 mountain ranges with crystal clear lakes and ponds. Close to Tuscarora/Great Eastern Trail.
Cons- Our site wasn't quite level. The water spigots are shared. The entrance road is not for the faint of heart or those who are very fussy about their vehicle.
So being an outdoorsman I really liked this campground and may return some day. - User3064

Our favorite park by far. In the mountains, out of the way and "rustic". Staff are very friendly and helpful and not there to deny anyone a good time that aren't bothering others. We stayed TWICE this summer! - Jdawg and G unit

The last campground was not our style, so we sacrificed $50 and called around. The Cove had a lakeside rustic cabin for $95 plus taxes per night. So we drove the 15 miles to the Cove. The last 2-3 miles of which is dirt/ gravel, rough roads. Once we saw the lakes and mountains, my 15 year old son and I loved it. My wife was sketchy about the rural nature, as we had gone from the extremes of a campground next to the highway, to out in the middle of nowhere. I've stayed at worse places though. Try the steaks from the little gas station out on the main road (Gore road and Backcreek road). They are from Gore farm and are excellent on a grill. The cabin on site 2 was very, very old, built in 1972, according to the owner. The campground has been in the family since 1950 something. The lakeside cabin was very dirty and in poor condition. As we were 3.5 hrs from home, we decided to go to Wal-Mart 13 miles away to buy a mop and broom to clean the floor. There were stains, leaves and etc. There were mice in the cabin also which freaked out my wife. The view was beautiful from our site and once cleaned up, it was bearable. The showers were kind of disgusting though. There were dirty leaves on floor, no soap dish or place to change. The water was hot, though the doors did not close properly. The crappers were disgusting: essentially dirty outhouses with very old toilet seats. Apparently they don't invest time cleaning anything or invest money fixing up things. This place has SO much POTENTIAL. Nice local RVs. There are 4x4 trails, a gun and rifle range, fishing, hiking and swimming. It is upkeep that is lacking. We had a great time though. We would like to go back with our popup camper instead of staying at that neglected cabin. Owner: if you read this, please fix the place up and you'll have a goldmine. The gun range did get annoying as they shot all day Saturday and Sunday with rifles, pistols and noisy high power guns. Well, if you like it rustic, and laid back: have at it. The owners were very nice and helpful people. It was not so bad after all. - Terlordyl
