Best owners ever!

John and Joyce Bowers are awesome folks and are very caring and considerate. They go out of their way to make you feel like family. We camped along the wood line during a very busy weekend and had shade almost the entire time. John always made time to stop by and ask us if we needed anything. He was awesome.

Turn Pike camp

Nice pools with playground, fishing pond and tons of open space. They have 30amp and are limited to 50. They seems to have tons of activites going on but we couldn’t stay to find out. The spot they gave us had the eclectical box broke, even tho we had been talking with with a whole month an in half. We got tons of help from staff and the campers there.

Hopefully the fix thier issues and we shall return, everyone there seemed to always have fun and enjoy the food that was prepared for them there

Great Weekend Stay

First stay at Benner’s and had a great weekend. Great campsite, clean grounds and facilities. We will be back.

Seneca Shadows

Always clean. Staff is helpful and very friendly.

Beautiful area!

Beautiful area! Waterfalls, campground is quiet and clean! Just stopping for the night but will come back again to explore more!

Almost Heaven

Have been camping at Horseshoe annually for six years. Quite and remote. Great place to connect with family in the wide open spaces of West Virginia. Very nice bathroom facilities,no bath house but plenty of water. Activities; hiking, tubing, swimming, fishing, and any game you can think off to play in the wide open fields.

love love love!

we try to come every year for trick or treat! We’ve loved this one the most ever since we found it! Can’t wait to be there in the fall!


Laid back and always friendly people. This was our go to for years!

Back roads and solitude

This is a neat little spot to get away for the weekend. Very desolate camping spots, remote and large enough for groups. Highly recommend!

Complete solitude

This place is the definition of secluded. Almost all 100 campsites in the forest are 1/2 mile apart and they are pretty massive. Bare bones explains the park, because the sites only include a picnic table and fire pit. It’s just you and nature out there. No camp stores, bathrooms, or visitor areas. You can register during or after hours at the camp headquarters and pay $10 per night for the site of your choice. It’s a pretty excellent area as far as terrain too. Lots of deep valleys and lookout points. The area also features areas on rivers and canals. This campground has something for every nature lover.

20+ years later, still remember this spot!

I camped here 20+ years ago when I (a city girl) had just started camping and I still think about how awesome this place was. One day I'll definitely get back here. It was very secluded, quiet, and well-maintained. We had fun exploring around the campground climbing the boulders, and there were tons of trails nearby, plus overlooks with beautiful views. This place helped inspire my love of camping and being outdoors.

Awesome spot!

This campground was neat and well kept. I was impressed to find toilet paper in the bathrooms. Extra points for that and water pump 👍🏼👍🏼

Great park and campsites

I stayed in a primitive campsite and loved it. Campsites are far apart and have the standard fire pit and picnic table. No bathrooms.

Quiet and Quaint

Enjoyed our 3 night stay , would prefer a little more privacy but everyone was friendly . Overall a very pleasant experience

Lake in the mountains

Had a amazing time camping in this are. The camp sites are neat and clean. A lot of hiking trails to choose from and fishing, boating and swimming in the lake. Good place for a weekend trip

Huge Campsite

Make sure you find the actual address of this campsite before driving to it. We used the one that automatically entered in when I booked it and it took us an extra hour to actually find it, with limited cell reception. Campsite was huge! Many bathrooms, dish washing section, very clean. 3 flushing toilets, 2 showers, 2 sinks. Campsite had a large area. Fire ring, picnic table, bench. They had a special event on Friday by the park ranger and we got to go to the helapad and stargaze!! Would highly recommend this campground! Just find the address before driving to it! Oh and at the campsite, there was cell service( verizon). Ice and firewood for sale. Honor system. $2.50 for bags of ice and $6 for firewood. But tons of sticks and fallen logs for firewood so we didnt need any.


This may be the first campground I give a 10 out of 10! All the amenities your could want, it's clean, sites are leveled, it's maintained beautifully, there are cows in the distance, fully stocked store, friendly staff. Laundry, bathrooms, fairly spacious sites, a pool, dog park. Very, very nice.

Great views and waterfalls nearby.

This state park offers nearby hikes with great views such as vistas and waterfalls . The only complaint is that the camping area was very small. Felt like we are were camping so very close to each other. Small sites. Also the facilities I don’t think have ever been updated. Showers and toilets old.

Close to Seneca Rocks

Clean sites. Close to climbing and hiking opportunities.

Group Sites

There are three group sites in a field along the South Branch of the Potomac. Vault toilets.


What a pleasure, this place is great. Neat mixture of old campground and new campground. Kids had a blast, plenty of activities, water park, outstanding camp store. Can’t say enough about this place.

Great Location for New River Gorge Climbing

Good jumping off point to do some rock climbing at the New. Close to food, store, and other locations. Tons of stuff to do around the area!

Great tubing and fishing!

The campground is located in a bend in the South Branch of the Potomac in the Smoke Hole Canyon. The river makes a loop where there is only a couple hundred yards to climb out of the river and get back in and do it again. Great smallmouth fishing stream.

Amazing place

Pulled in late at night Found a spot easily Great clean bathrooms Paid in the A.M. Very nice staff

Seneca Rocks!

Seneca Rocks is an unbelievable place. It is beautiful to hike up to the top and well kept. They have camping sites near by that you can hammock or set up a tent! I loved it there and look forward to going back soon.

Park super small, some great sites hidden among some junk

My son and I tent camped here in July to escape the head down in Pittsburgh.  Sits up high in the mountains close to 3000ft elevation.  Park and campground are very small and almost desolate during the week.  There is a main road nearby and you hear industrial trucks rolling by constantly.  There are some great private tent only wooded sites that sit above the main park of the campground so you really feel secluded.

One of the best in the state!

Had a amazing time at this campground. The sites were clean. Had drinkable water in walking distance and also public bathrooms with showers. The trails and views were amazing. Also good fishing near by. I highly recommend staying at this campsite.


One of the best places I’ve been to.

Amazing Fun

Awesome views and great hiking trails. Not far from Cheat lake and cheat river for fishing. The camp sites are well kept and have easy access to bathrooms and firewood. Also cabins near by if you wish to rent out those. Must see for a weekend trip.

Nice place

Had a great time with family and friends
