About Chestnut Creek Campground

The closest campground to the New River Gorge Bridge. Chestnut Creek Campground offers quiet primitive camping in the woods. We are a mere half a mile (0.5mi) from the New River Gorge Bridge! That's walking distance folks. Our hygienic facility has hot showers, lavatory stalls, hand washing sinks, and a wash basin located outside for dish washing and filling up water jugs. Firewood and Ice are available on site as well. Each campsite has a picnic table and a fire pit. A general store and burrito bar are located literally around the corner; Both are within walking distance. Hiking and Climbing trail-heads (Fern Buttress, Endless Wall, Beauty Mountain; to name a few) are just down the way and access to the river is a stone's throw away (our drive is just across from Fayette Station Rd). If you're wanting to venture further to more local restaurants/shops; we are only a 5 minute drive from downtown Fayetteville. We are a pet friendly establishment for those with dogs who love to travel as much as you do. We keep quiet hours from 11pm-7am (starts @ midnight on weekends). Mainly we accommodate rustic tent camping, however; some sites are able to accommodate pop-up campers and trailers up to 20ft (we do not have hookups/electric). Call today to reserve a site for your upcoming adventure at the New River Gorge.

Nice quiet camp ground..

We didn't have reservations but the manager told us to text him when we arrived after hours Charge was per person not per site, but reasonable at $15. This seams to be common practice in the area. No electric or water at site but bathhouse with showers. Mostly tent sites in wooded area Our visit was the first full weekend I. November and many other campgrounds were closed for the winter.

Fantastic and friendly

Very well kept, nice owner, and overall fantastic place. Ammenities are all good, even during the rush of labor day weekend.

Wooded tent campsites

Stayed here 2 nights with all our children and grandchildren. We had a great couple days with rain at times. Site was large with lots of trees. Seth was very friendly and helpful. This is a nonelectric site campground and I found that appealing. There are flush toilets and showers. We hiked Endless Wall Trail and Glade Creek Trail to Kate’s Falls

A Work in Progress

This is a quiet campground, with lots of space and site options, run independently by a family. Most sites are simple with just a picnic table and fire pit. There are lots of trees in between many of the sites for great privacy. There is only one bath house and it can be a short hike depending on the location of your site, but it was clean, had several stalls, showers, sinks and electricity.

The campground charges per person which was different from what I'm used to, but it was very reasonable and comparable to other campgrounds in the area.

The family is working regularly to add to this campground and make it better. There are visible works in progress all over. The owner stopped us on the way out and asked for feedback. He is eager to make improvements.

Dog-friendly

Has a Frisbee/Disc Golf Course.

Close to rivers, climbing and hiking activities.

Cell reception was great all throughout this area. That's not a camping necessity for us, but we all noticed that everyone's phone had great reception with a variety of network providers. We do a lot of remote camping and expect our phones not to have reception. This made it easy to research new activities and things to see while we were there.

My apologies for not having photos of our site. My phone malfunctioned on this trip and had to be replaced. The photos did not transfer sadly.

great owner who was very helpful

the campground is bigger than it appears as there are multiple places to camp on one site, it is a primitive campground so don't come looking to hook up to electricity, very family friendly and good for dogs as well, close to several river access points

Nice Campground for tents/Hammocks/Car Camping

This is a very nice little campground set up for tents, hammock campers and some car campers. No hook-ups. Definitely not for RVs or Camper trailers. All the sites are wooded and they allow you to use fallen trees/branches for your fires. Nice bathhouse with good hot water and water pressure. Very nice manager.
