A school bus driver that loves camping!

Down home country

I loved this campground. It is not a large campground in number of sites but has huge open fields for lots of outdoor fun. It has tent sites and level rv sites with 30 amp and water. No sewer. And one 50 amp site. Most sites have partial shade from the tree line. Each site has a fire ring and plastic picnic table. It has a creek for swimming or wading at your own risk. It also has horseshoes, playground, large outdoor picnic area, as well as a clean bathhouse with showers. There is a dump station and trash dumpster for your convenience on the way out of the campground.

A great family campground

This is a great campground. Friendly staff. Affordable rates. Sites are level mostly with grass sites. Many of the sites are very large. There is a good mix of seasonal, yearly, and in-and-outers. It is right on the river for swimming, kayaking, and fishing. There is a playground for the kids and bring the bikes for them to ride around the campground. It is a nice family campground. It's close to the town of Augusta for supplies or extra groceries. Electric golf carts are allowed. Strict quiet hours from 11pm-8am. Due to COVID restrictions tent camping isn't allowed due to bath house being closed. On a normal summer, this place has lots of events and activities for everyone including a Bluegrass Festival at the end of June.

Lots of regulars

So this is my second time at Happy Hills Campground in Hancock, MD from June 25th-28th. It being relatively close to the home is the reason for choosing it because of doctor appts for the kids.

The site I was in (F1) was really small and very close to the neighboring site. We got lucky no one was camping next to us. It had full hook-ups (30amp/water/sewer) and a pull thru site with picnic table and fire ring. It was $40/night. This campground is mainly for monthly site rentals with more than 3/4 of them permanent sites.

Lots of golf cart and ATV traffic with no quiet hours that I am aware of. We weren't informed the pool would be open and you had to sign up for two hour timeslots to get in. This must have been information only available to the regulars here. Also cell service (Sprint roaming most of the time) is terrible and the campground wifi is spotty at best. The camp store was closed due to COVID so if needed anything you had to go to town.

Bathrooms were clean. Never checked out the showers but heard they were free.

Overall, I wasn't a happy camper. I don't think I will be back.

Excellent camping in Parsons

I really love Five River Campground in Parsons, WV. The owners are amazing! This campground is paved up to the campground. It has 120 RV sites many with full hook-ups. It can accommodate tents to large rigs. It has great cell signal for most carriers and even offers wifi and cable. It is a pretty level area so riding bicycles around the campground and even into town are doable. In August, they have a huge Bluegrass Festival here too! I will definitely be back here again! Only cons were I had to leave and no picnic tables.

Shaded bliss

If you are looking for a nice place to relax, this is the campground. It's an older state park with mature shade trees but we'll maintained. The bathhouse is kept very clean. It has a lake for swimming, boating, and fishing. There are programs every weekend. There is even an archery range. There is hiking trails throughout as well. I definitely recommend this place. Limit on RV length to 35 feet. This includes tow vehicle and trailer.
