Extremely cramped & unsafe

We rolled in today for a four night stay at Ocean waves Campground. Based on the reviews we thought it would be great place. Everything went fine in check in. However when drove in, it was the tightest, most crowded campsite we’d ever seen. When we got to our site we saw that it was incredibly cramped and was a 90° back in with too many cars at adjacent sides to make it even possible to make the turn.

Additionally, our site (that was to accommodate our trailer and a tent) was a small concrete pad surrounded by grass that was under several inches of water. The electrical hook up post was in a huge puddle unsafe to navigate.

While the adjacent campers in full Trump regalia looked on, I booked a site at the adjacent KOA. Staff was grouchy at my insistence that the site would not do and was unsafe, but did refund all but one nights stay.

Nice Campground with Full Hookups

Nice campground next to Chestnut Ridge Park (great pond swimming & newt catch/release as well as summer folk music concerts on Sat when not COVID). Also 5 minutes from Coopers Rock (great lookout, awesome trails, old clay furnace- pictured).

Full Hookups, generous spots for larger RVs. Owners are very nice and helpful. Gets booked up for holiday & football weekends because of limited full h/u in area.

Beautifully Maintained State Park

Stayed here for 5 nights in our 37’ travel trailer. Beautiful property, well maintained, with lots to do. We enjoyed many of the parks amenities including a horseback ride on the trails, the giant inflatables at the lake, the nature center & hiking.

Campground specific- we stayed in site 21. Full H/U

Pros: Wooded campsites Quiet Amenities Picnic tables & fire rings at each site Trash cans have raccoon lids & are picked up daily Helpful campground staff Kids loved biking around campground, very safe

Cons: Tight spots to maneuver with bigger camper

First to Review
Convenient Location with Full Hook Ups

There aren’t a whole lot of full hook up camping spots in the Morgantown area. Mylan park has a bunch of full hook ups in a parking lot convenient to I 79.

Pros: Easy to get to Decent sized “parking spaces” Available on holiday weekend Good price ($40/night) Full hookups (bring your long sewer tube, I used 3 x15’ as it’s at the tail of the spot) Fields & Grassy area adjacent. Good for kids biking & running around Same park as awesome aquatic center (although we didn’t use it bc if covid)

Cons: Parking lot No fire pits Huge puddle at site 27 despite dry conditions Nothing to break up noise Football practice started at 7:30 am right behind my camper. VERY loud with whistles, cheering, cars, etc. Thankfully, we’re early risers. No shade
