4 Parks near St Albans, West Virginia
Oct 2015 - $0.00
This is an excellent stop over for a night or two. We came expecting to leave a donation in the box but the donation box had tape over it. A policeman drove through and I asked him about it. He notice the taped-over box but said he didn't know anything about it and didn't seem interested. During summer a 2 night max is enforced and maybe the drop box is working. This time of year we were told you can stay longer. There is a dump station and fresh water as you come in. There are 3 pull-through sites which can handle at most a 32 ft unit. Each with 15 & 30 amp plugs. There seem to be more open area on the other side of the park for larger units with 2 or 3 electric outlets.
The only negative is the 4 lane divided highway in front of where you park, but it does quiet down at night. The view of the river on the other side is beautiful.
HikingRooster reports:The other units reported on the other side of the park are in the marina and are not for public use. The city uses those spots to park special use vehicles. - k m m

This is a small roadside city park that has 3 or 4 overnight spots with 20 and 30 amp service. There is a water fill station and a dump station. There is no charge for use of the campground or fill and dump stations, but donations are accepted. The restrooms are in the public park area and have no showers. The campground sits between the main road and the river, there will be road noise and well as river boat vibrations, but for the price it is a bargain. This is a great stop over campground. - WVRVGrandparents

Situated on the bank of the Kanawha River in St. Albans, WV Three pull-through sites are available for year-round use while water is only available between April 1 and October 31. While the sites are very close to Rt. 60 (a busy road) traffic subsides around 7 PM. A 30A and 20A circuit is available at each site. While limited to three sites, the marina parking lots is capable of accommodating several large vehicles with trailers. During the summer months the city prefers that only vehicles launching boats use the marina parking lot during daylight hours. - HikingRooster

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

The lake area of the park is beautiful. The lower are for the pull thru less so, but nice, in a small valley. Had surprisingly good over the air TV, in spite of valley. Nice folks in office. We only stayed one night, but we'll be back.
Very quiet! - 5th Wheel Cal

Two areas, upper lot with full hooks ups is all gravel, no shade, tightly packed in ($35). Lower level is W & E only (thereis a pump out you can use), nice grassy & shady areas, backs up to a river ($25). Got weekly rate of $100! Quiet except for trains that go by on other side or the river. Not too frequent. Laundry, showers & restrooms. - 2bounders

This is a definite no frills place. Fine for an overnight stay. It is grass and dirt. The lower level is like an open field with water and electric, no sewer. There is an upper level with sewer, at a higher price. The bathroom and showers were clean. The ground is level, no picnic table or patio. You pay on the honor system by slipping your money into an envelope then into a box. The lower level has pull-through sites. - esta34950

This is a great little campground, not a destination camping resort or a KOA but it is clean, well kept, quiet, peaceful, large sites (in lower camping area). The full hookup area (upper area) seems mostly for permanent/ transient workers, but the lower area has 30 and 50 amp power sites as well as water. - WVRVGrandparents

Just stopped for one night while passing through WV on I64. Was OK for one night but very tight for our 45' Motorhome. I think it would be very difficult departing the space we were in if the folks on either side had not left firts. Could almost touch the slide out in the spot next to me from the bedroom. Would probably come here again for a one nighter..... - SHIPM8

Camped in a 35 foot fifth wheel on pull through site 9. Site is gravel, nearly level, with room for truck, very close to neighbors, & has a grass patch. No shade. Interior roads are paved. Campground is adjacent to I 64 & noisy; however, sites close to office are away from interstate & quieter. No cable at site 9, but there are about 20 OTA channels. WiFi & AT&T cell coverage both good. Bath & laundry houses clean. Pond with beach for swimming, but water color is very unappealing. Basketball hoop & playground. Staff is friendly & directs camper to site. - Scottsdale RVers

We got to this park fairly late on a Saturday night when a Halloween party was going on. They were extremely full and all roads were crowded going in. We were escorted to our site which was not at all level. They were squeezing RVs in to every available area, even those that were not actually sites. We actually had to back out of our site the next morning because the roads were so narrow that we were not able to pull out and make the turn on to the road. Staff was helpful but we would be sure not to stay here again when any sort of function was going on. - SandyA
