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. We camped at St. Albans Roadside Park in a Motorhome.
Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $1.00
Noted that this park had not be reviewed recently. Nothing has changed since the previous review. The park can hold 6, but tonight there are only 2 sites occupied. Donations accepted but stays are limited to 2 nights. Park is between highway and river so you have the best and worst of both. I definitely would stay here again. All the sites are the same size and we have a 30 Class A, with a Jeep Toad and we barely fit in our site, so anything longer with a Toad would be a problem. We camped at St. Albans Roadside Park in a Motorhome.
The City of St. Albans is to be commended for such a beautiful park, and for making it available for small RVs. There is a donation box, and a 2 night limit. The view of the river is beautiful, and the park is on the bank of the river. There is a busy highway beside the park, with stores and restaurants across the street. There is 120v 15 amp electrical service, but no 30-50 amp service. the only water is available at the dump station, so you can refill your water supply tank. The bathrooms had graffiti, but appeared clean, but no showers. There is a 2 day stay limit. I stayed 2 days, and would love to return, if ever in the Charleston, WV area again. The fee was free but there is a donations box. We camped at St. Albans Roadside Park in a Motorhome.
This is a tiny park between a busy street and a River. There are 15 amp electrical outlets. There are no showers--but there are toilets. The facilities are locked by 8 P.M.
