Pretty nice sites varying in sizes, with the largest sites capable holding 5 or 6 tents. We went in early November and we had the whole place to ourselves. Most of the sites have parking, with 3 or 4 up on a hill requiring a little leg work. I think there are 15 campsites overall

Creeks and streams cut through the campground sending everyone to seep peacefully and diffusing other noises well. I would imagine high water may close the campground so be weary in the spring.

Overall an amazing site, lots of wood for fires, 1 toilet for the campground, some sites I read said there was water accessible but we never found it and filtered river water. super serene and very peaceful place. Also close to some solid trails and the highest point in WV (Spruce Knob) isn’t far away.
