    Welcome to Grandview Sandbar Campground, nestled in the heart of the New River Gorge National Park and Preserve. This spot is a gem for those who appreciate a blend of natural beauty and simplicity. The campground is free and operates on a first-come, first-served basis, so plan accordingly.

    The campground offers a mix of tent and RV sites, with some fantastic walk-in sites right along the riverbank. These riverfront spots are particularly popular for their scenic views and easy access to the water. The drive-in sites are generally level and spacious, though you might find the occasional leftover trash from previous campers.

    Amenities here are basic but functional. There are pit toilets, which visitors have found to be relatively clean, though they could use some updating. Trash disposal is available, but be prepared for the possibility of overflowing dumpsters, especially during peak times. There’s no drinking water on-site, so make sure to bring your own.

    One of the standout features of this campground is its peaceful setting. You’ll be surrounded by deciduous forest, and the sound of the river is a constant, soothing backdrop. However, be aware that trains do run nearby, and their noise can be a bit disruptive, especially at night.

    For activities, the New River is just a short walk away, offering opportunities for fishing, kayaking, and simply enjoying the views. The campground is a bit off the beaten path, so it’s perfect for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle.

    In summary, Grandview Sandbar Campground is a beautiful, no-frills spot that offers a serene escape into nature. Just come prepared with your own water and a bit of patience for the occasional noise and trash issues. Enjoy your stay!
