Beautiful location, all site with electric

Blackwater Falls offers 2 loops with sites providing water and electric. There have been some recent upgrades before opening for summer 2021, so all sites are now electric. They were not careful about the placement of hookups, so for some of the pull-through sites, they are on the wrong side of the site. For the 1-28 loop, note that you drive clockwise through the loop, from the high numbered sites to the lower ones. Hookups for the drive through sites are on the side away from the road, which means that the ones on the inside of the loop, the electric hookups are on the right(wrong) side of the camper. Choose a pull-through site on the outside of the loop for hookups on the correct side. 

Site in the middle of the loop get more sun. The loop with the higher numbers has more shade. Some sites, like 13/15, 17/18 and 19/21, 20/22are sister sites, often with a pull-through site and a back-in site, so be sure to read the site descriptions closely. There’s a separate loop off the higher loop that has electric but is set up for tenters. The dump station is oddly located…a slightly wider part of the loop, but may prove problematic if someone is dumping and a large rig is trying to get by. Some of the sites are accessible. 

More of the sites in the 29+ loop have some degree of slope. Each loop has a central bathhouse with showers and flush toilets. 

There’s a small shop and campfire wood for sale at the campground. There’s a snackbar in the park. While I was there spring 2021 the lodge was still closed, but when open there is also a restaurant and pool($). 

The park has a lake, trails, and a picturesque waterfall(the most photographed in the state). There’s an easily reached overlook on one side(better light in the morning) and one that requires a descent down stairs that is better in the afternoon. Hike out to Lindy point to watch the sunset(limited parking) or drive the loop road from Rt 32 to the trail to Table Rock for sunrise. I enjoyed sunset, but it rained the morning I wanted to watch the sunrise. Autumn colors have to be spectacular. Nearby Canaan Valley offers another pool option, more hiking & biking opportunities and playground.
