Nice sites

Stayed here on a whim after hiking up to McAfee Knob. Showed up right at 10pm and luckily found an empty spot. Got a fire going and made some dinner. Not the best privacy but at night there were no issues. Nice level gravel pads that we just pitches a mosquito pop up and slept on the ground.

Fun Hike, easy parking

This was a fine place to park overnight. The trailhead connects to the Appalachian Trail, so there were several other cars parked overnight as well. It is a gravel lot, pretty level. There is a little road noise until about 1030 PM. Pretty little creek runs by the gravel lot, and there are also…

Nice spot but it’s a party zone

Lake Moomaw is nice though it has the distinctive bathtub ring of a reservoir. We had a “premium” campsite in loop 1 that was right off the water, which was very nice. The bathrooms in the main loop with showers were nice and clean, the pit toilet on the premium sites had a bad fly problem.

Friendly place

Camped out for one night, great place. Owners are real friendly, they have a store as well. The trains though! My dog did not appreciate them, but overall nice place.

100% worth the trek

Beautiful quiet lake, not heavily trafficked. Campsite is only accessible via water, so we packed our gear up on paddle boards to get there. It’s a private little cove, sites are first come first serve, we had it to ourselves the whole night and next day. East water access, tables, fire pit,…

Bathrooms spotless

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…

Perfect lake camping

Our spot was right there on the water, there are bathrooms at the top of the hill. Campsites are drive up and can fit 2 vehicles. The spot also has a fire ring and picnic tables.

I didn’t have cell service and you are pretty close to a lot of other people and RVs, but still a great spot.

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…

Free hot showers and 2pm check out

Typical NFS campground with a decent spacing between large sites. Watched some deer walk thru a few times they didn’t seem fazed by me or my dog. Being from the northeast I was stoked to find hot FREE showers and a 2pm check out time. The lake is man made but very large and looks like it’s always…

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.

Nice water views!

We stayed in Meador site 14, which was the furthest away from the bath house (still only maybe 150 yards), but it was on the water & was the most secluded (just meaning it's at the end of the row not between other spots). It was freshly mowed, had a fire ring, picnic table, & was right on…
