    Gauley Bridge, West Virginia

    Welcome to New River Campground, nestled right along the scenic New River near Gauley Bridge, WV. This spot is perfect for those who love being close to the water. Imagine waking up to the sound of the river and enjoying your morning coffee with a stunning view right from your campsite.

    One of the standout features here is the personal bathhouses assigned to each site. It's a nice touch that adds a bit of privacy and convenience to your stay. Plus, the staff is known for being super helpful and accommodating, especially for those who might need a little extra assistance.

    If you're bringing a big rig, no worries—this place is big-rig friendly. Just be prepared for the highway noise, which some folks mentioned drops off after dark. The sites are gravel, and while it can get a bit muddy when it rains, the views and the proximity to the river more than make up for it.

    For those who love fishing or kayaking, the river access is unbeatable. You can practically cast your line from your campsite. And if you're into exploring, Cathedral Falls is just down the road and definitely worth a visit.

    Firewood is available on-site for a reasonable price, and the owner makes rounds in the evening to offer it to campers. It's a nice touch that adds to the friendly, community vibe of the place.

    So, if you're looking for a beautiful, quiet spot with great river access and friendly folks, New River Campground is a solid choice. Just keep an eye out for the turn-off near the CVS, or you might miss it!

    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!
