Quiet and Peaceful

We really enjoyed our stay at Rifrafters! It was quiet and our site as nicely spaced from other sites — #34 — so we had plenty of privacy and connection to nature. Laura greeted us as soon as we pulled in, gave us a lay of the land, and drove us to our spot. We were really close to all the fun recreation spots and would definitely stay here again, but for longer!! The weather was also perfect with low humidity but plenty of sunshine and shade.


Enjoyed everything. Will get 5 when they have bathhouses!

Mid-sized, quiet, & convenient to lots of recreation areas

We stayed one night at site 34 in the back of the campground and loved it. It was quiet, with both shade and sun; it also had a wooden deck and nice picnic table. The back seems to be for small RVs and tents (we have a teardrop). We opted for a water and electric site; there is a dump station in the front of the park. The middle and front of the park was for larger RVs, tents and several cabins that were too close together for our preference. A 3 mile drive to long point trailhead and only 20 minutes from the beautiful Summersville lake. The campground has a bathhouse and store but we didn’t use either so can’t comment on those amenities.

Lil Red Ranch house at CB Ranch

We loved every moment of our stay from the fire pit to the beautiful tails on the property to seeing the farm animals .  The constant songs of the birds is a reminder that we belong in nature. The cabin was decorated very nicely and was clean and the bed was very comfy also. The farm is 4 miles from a quaint small town with shops and great restaurants.  Lots of local attractions from State parks, Greenbrier rails to tails (77 miles long ), Greenbrier river (Kayaking) and a couple caves to explore. While we were packing up our belongings to head home we talked about how much we love this place. The host were amazing and we have made some unforgettable memories on this property. We cant wait to come back in the future.

Cozy but loud

Other than the interstate directly overhead, its a nice place. Its also very tight. I have a 35’ BP and it was difficult getting it in. But, it sits right on the river with a gas station and store onsite. No sewer hook up but a dump-station was on site. Good for an overnight.

Awesome Place

Maybe my favorite campground. Beautiful lake views, very well kept sites, clean bath houses and tons of nearby activities. Very difficult to reserve because of its popularity but this campground is fantastic.

Peaceful and off the beaten path

Great campground with roughly 40 sites for tent and RV camping. We called 30 minutes before our arrival and the friendly staff was able to accommodate us last minute. They drive me around on the side by side to let me pick our site. Most had full hook up but I ended up with a water and electric only. All facilities were clean and dump station was at a convenient location. I’ll be back!

1500 acres and trails!!!

Great campground. Very clean and friendly. It sits on 1500 acres and has 41+ miles of trails. The only complaint is the campsites are very close but everyone was friendly and respectful so all in all it was a great place.

Best campground in the area and very reasonably priced.

This is my favorite developed campground in the new river / gauley river area. Known by kayakers and rock climbers. It also has rustic cabin bunkhouses that are also reasonably priced.

To much to describe.

So much to see and do, a lot of history and nearby attractions to make the most of being in the area. No cell service is a plus, battery last longer for photos.
