My favorite campground!

This was my first stop on my cross country trip from Virginia to California and out of all the amazing places I’ve seen, this is by far my favorite spot!

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.

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,…

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…

Beautiful and Quiet.

Cannot recommend camping here enough!! Sites are well situated, and very private. Especially the walk up sites, they're the real gem. Every site has a picnic table and fire ring. Pit toilets are maintained, but towards the end of our trip there was no TP for the last two days. Prepare…

Pretty quiet backpacking campground

I stayed here on a Sunday night so it was super quiet and I only passed two people on the trail. The campground is right by the water so it’s really pretty and refreshing. A perfect site for an easy backpacking trip.

Online it says something like “prettiest campground in WV” idk if that’s true…

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.

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.

Peaceful campground on a river

We thoroughly enjoyed this campground. Very peaceful, surrounded by mountains. The campground had stables and catered to people with horses, but we felt very welcomed by the owners. The campground was very quiet and is actually very near to what is referred to as"The Quiet Zone." Pocahontas County…

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…
