Hidden gem at Spruce Knob

This is a great spot for a large group. Very spacious with two vault toilets. We were able to find quite a few nice hammock spots in the trees if that's your preferred camping method. The ranger checked on us each day and took trash and resupplied toilet paper as needed. Will definitely go back.

Nice spot in the NRG

Great location for activities in the New River Gorge. There are different sections within the campground and some are more crowded than others. There are some sites "way out back" as the owner says that we tend to prefer just for privacy and there is more distance between you and your neighbors. The office has cheap firewood and your typical amenities if you forgot something but not a huge selection. Bathhouse is very large so I've never had a problem finding an open shower or stall. It's only a few minutes away from a TON of stuff to do/see. Since there isn't open camping in the gorge, this is the next best thing. Highly recommended!

Great Campground

Eleven sites total and each one has a fire pit with grill cover as well as a picnic table. As of this review, it is $11 per site per night and you will need cash for that. The campground is kept up very well. The grass was cut, there were several trash cans available, and the two bathrooms are clean but they are vault toilets so keep that in mind. My wife and I stayed at site #10 and were able to hang both of our hammocks there. At least three other sites that I noticed could also accommodate at least a couple of hammocks but they were taken at the time. Overall it was quiet, clean, and perfectly located to a lot of great points of interest within Dolly Sods, most notably the Blackbird Knob trailhead which is only about 20 yards from the campground entrance. I would highly recommend it!
