The Most Beautiful Mountain Camp

Camp Holly is a beautiful campground in the mountains of West Virginia.. Off grid but they do offer Wifi.

You can choose between hammock, tent, cabin or RV camping, I would recommend tenting it down by the beautiful rivers. The owners are super sweet and more than accommodating.

Small secluded campground

Less than 10 campsites situated in a small creek/canyon away fro the main park. Great for seclusion. Good tree cover. Pitted toilets, pay for showed down the road at the ranger station, hand pumped water on site. It was raining most of my stay so I was not able to full experience the attractions…

Ok for a KOA

We prefer state parks but had to stay here at a KOA because of availability (Labor Day Weekend). My biggest complaint with KOAs is the tightness of the sites - this one was not bad. They had concert pads for the picnic tables (loved that). But we were in the first loop and we were far from the…

Quiet beautiful piece of nature

We camped here with our dogs for 3 nights. The campground is about 2 miles from the Babcock State Park visitor center and trails. When you enter the campground, there's a little check in station. They have maps and sell ice. There is a small loop with electrical sites, but it's absolutely not…

Beautiful scenery

Lovely campground. Not too noisy and gorgeous nature. Campsite 2 is across the path from the check in point and you are quite on display but on the other hand you have WiFi signal and are close to water and perfect distance from the campground.

Firewood and ice is available for purchase and there…

Great primitive camping, with bathroom facilities

Very inexpensive (15 bucks for one night). Super close to new river gorge. Nice bathroom facilities, although I did not use the shower it looked decent enough. Would stay here again!

Fun and tasty!

Arrowhead bike farm is a great place to camp. It’s not super private so if that’s what your looking for then definitely don’t come here. But it is a great place. They have a big field for you to set up tents on along with RV camping areas and a place with individual sites in the back. It’s also a…

Family Friendly

We only stayed one night but it was a beautiful stay. Did a little day fishin’ even though there weren’t any catches it was still a great time. Family friendly site. A lot of bike paths. We had a really late arrival and it was such an easy process to find our spot. Clean and efficient campsite.

Camping on the Greenbrier River

The Greenbrier River RV Park campground was fine. It was right on the Greenbrier River and you could do float, kayak and canoe trips from the campground. There were full hook-up sites and tent sites (right on the river). The sites were pretty big and most were shaded. It was close (less than 15…

It’s like I had the place to myself

Stopped here spur of the moment to get out of the car and stretch my legs. Sites are close together with no privacy but the were only a few other campers over the 3 days I was there. Beautiful creek and waterfall with sandy beach only a short walk from campground. I stayed on the upper loop and…

New River Campground

It was our first time staying here.  The sites were level and spaced out pretty well.  We were at site 12, which is close to the main road.  Surprisingly there was not a lot of road noise.  Firewood is for sale on-site and you get a good bang for your buck.   We look forward to coming back again…

Wonderful stay, but crazy roads leading to it.

Spent two nights here, with a full hook up on the edge of the New River. From bumper of my TT to the river was about 30ft. Shade trees and a light morning mist on the river made a beautiful sunrise.

Note, the drive from Rt 19 to the campground is 8% grades both uphill and down, with twists,…

Beautiful riverside sites

Deep into the New River Gorge, this location puts you right up to the river in question. With nearby hikes and an abandoned mining town (with visitor center!) just down the road, and for free, no less, this location is absolutely amazing.

Great free campsite

I stayed in 3 of the free campgrounds around & this one was my favorite. There was a sink w running water in the bathrooms down by the dam. I expected the campsites to feel cramped but they are set up so that you park your car next to your site, & that gives a lot of privacy. Fire rings…

Nice spot near the NRG

Tent-focused (but able to take up about a 16ft trailer), no hookups, reservations are via (304) 574-3136 and on site contact/needs are via (801) 680-5496.

Just down the road from the i-built-a-huge-floating-speaker campground, but much more laid back, quiet and my speed.
