Nice park once you get to it. The road in from I-68 is very narrow with NO shoulders and drop offs can cause damage, so slow down and don't drift off the road. Tried to call the CG to check on availability but call always went to voice mail and no one called back. Luckily there was room when I arrived. Hosts were friendly and helpful. - jnateg

We were looking for a CG that would be convenient to hiking in the area. We're self contained and don't use the facilities except for an occasional shower. We stayed on weeknights in late October in a 25 foot MH. McCollum/CRSF CG is a nice small campground. Off season senior rates are $14 for WV residents, $25.20 for non-residents. The sites are arrayed on a forested hillside and most are good sized with electric and gravel parking pads. A few sites are level, most need some leveling. As others have noted, many of the back in sites are reversed so you need to drive the wrong way on the one way road. The CG is small and easy to walk through to find the best approach to a site. There are a few pull throughs and pull overs. There are trees to provide shade and some privacy. The sites on the outer ring are most private. The showers could use some TLC, however were clean with ample hot water. Theres a laundry room which we did not use. Water and dump are near the entrance. There's usable ATT and no Verizon cell coverage in the CG. There's Verizon coverage at the Coopers Rock Overlook. The road to the CG is narrow and windy. There was a ~35 class A with a toad in the CG. - dsvt

State Forest campground with electric at site. Fresh water located at Office area. Staff drove me to the site to see if the RV would fit. Had to return to the entrance to turn around because we went the wrong way to get the RV into the site. Beautiful location and plenty to do in and near the campground. Restroom could use some TLC but were cleaned multiple times during the day. Will return on our next visit. - Outwest63

Three miles off highway on a very rough road. The campground road entering and leaving was not friendly to big rigs. There was no WiFi, no dog park, and could not use our satellite. - Fulltimersrv

No restrooms, showers, etc. were available as advertised. No mention of that at checkin. The two restroom/shower facilities present were locked closed. We only used electric hookup. Unsure if water was even available.
Offer of cash discount with no receipt was fishy.
Would not attempt to enter camp facility in large motor home. Only bad experience in 3-day travel thru this beautiful state. - Bob West

When we called to reserve a site for a one night stopover we asked several questions including do you have any satellite friendly sites? They said yes. When we arrived we were told that there were none that would work. That was true. We were promised a full hook up site. When we arrived we were told that none of the full hook up sites were level. So we agreed to a water and electric site that was supposed to be level. Not so. It was a back-in on the edge of a ravine. I raised the back of the coach as far as I could but we were still nose high. Then I put large rocks behind all the tires to keep out of the ravine. There is no wifi or cable TV. Several "over the air" channels are available. The restrooms are not clean. When I attempted to move the picnic table closer to the coach a rotted top board came off in my hand. Not a place we will stay again. - Geodoc

A wonderful place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful . The showers are the cleanest I've ever seen and heated. I stayed early November 2018 Very convenient to amenities in the Cheat Lake region and Morgantown. Would be tight for motor homes over 32'. I will definitely be coming back. - C130 NAV

Hard to rate for RVs. Would be a 2 or 3 if you are large (Class A or towing a long trailer)--don't try it unless you are very comfortable driving on small roads. 1.5 mile narrow road to park with no shoulder is a nail biter even in a smaller RV. Sites in Loop E are all angled backwards with no place to turn around to orient your rig correctly to back into your site. Loop D has a few sites that are more big-rig friendly and easier to access. But Loop D has no shower house or flush toilets (there is an outhouse near loop D entrance). From perspective of smaller RVs who are looking for a reasonably priced campground (E/W $24/night if stay more than one night, otherwise $28) in gorgeous wooded setting and convenient to I-68, this is a beautiful park. Was able to get into site in E loop with 25 foot motorhome (which is where the one shower house is located) by using empty site across from me to turn around. It would have been a lot more challenging otherwise. Sites are well shaded. Over-the-air TV antenna picked up plenty of Pittsburg stations. Verizon signal no good, but office has public wifi that is decent. Hopefully they work on their campground roads soon. They were dirt and stone/rock and very bumpy, with deep pits and gullies from heavy rains. Also, be aware that the dump station is down past Camp Loop E - not on the way in or out for either of the RV loops, but closer to E. - aowcarol

We were planning to stay here one night on our way east, but our truck broke down, so we were here in our 26' travel trailer, while it was being repaired. Other reviews will give you more details about the campground.
The campground is lovely and the showers are clean and extremely nice, but our primary experience was with the great staff, who did all they could to help us and even stopped by our campsite to check on us. Price is $28 for one night, but $24 if you stay multiple nights, so we paid $48 for two nights. - SheriRS

We reserved in advance and told to call before arrival. Upon calling, we were told to just pick a spot because they weren't actually working today and leave the money in the drop box. Sounded simple enough, accept we reserved a spot with full hook ups and spent over 1/2 hour driving around their parking lot trying to find one...and there were probably only 10 other RVs/campers there. Someone else arrived after us and we offered to add a splitter and share our water hook up because he had trouble finding a spot as well. The next morning there was a knock on our door from the site manager asking if we could shut our water off because he needed to do something to it to share with yet another camper. Not a big deal accept that this is the most we've ever paid for a campsite that obviously needs a ton of work. We went in order to be closer to the WVU Homecoming game so we accomplished what we set out to do, but I don't think we will return. - CampSwiger

This is an event center with a large parking lot. Hookups are around the perimeter of the parking lot. When we arrived there were no events and the lot was empty so we parked parallel and therefore had a pull thru. This worked for us as we have a large MH with a tow. All utilities worked fine. Very quite at night. Route 19/24 Chaplin Park Road is narrow and has NOT had the trees trimmed in a long time. We often drove in the middle road and the trees still rubbed on our coach. I am not talking about a few leaves but branches that can damage your coach. Until this is corrected, the access road is not suitable for tall Motorhomes. - Lama79

Camped in a 35 foot fifth wheel in unnumbered back-in site. "Campground" is a large paved parking lot with an island of a few full utility hook-ups at rear of sites. Sites are level with lots of room for tow vehicle. About 18 good over the air TV stations; no WiFi. Parking lot is lit with high utility pole lights until very early morning. Quiet at night. There is a community center at edge of lot that was open until late evening & which has restrooms.. No laundry. Easy I 79 access. - Scottsdale RVers

This is a good place for an overnight when passing through. I called and told them we would be arriving late and the camp host cheerfully stayed up (till 9PM) when we arrived. The campground was clean, the grass was mowed and there were good gravel roads in the campground. and they gave us a pull through site as we were just passing through. Dump station on the way out. Water and 30 amp service at the site. Nice RV/camping signs were posted from the interstate that led you to the site. Maybe 2 miles from the exit. There is a small truck stop at that interstate exit also.
This is not a resort, but a nice place to stop for the night when passing through. - eb145

We would camp here again. Wi-Fi not advertised and not available. GPS directs to one exit north of exit to use: Davistown Rd exit. The campground can be seen from Interstate. This is a good overnight campground. It is near 24 hour gas & food and easy on/off interstate. When told we were overnight and in route, we got a pull through with WE30S that did not need leveling. Connections are tight. Maybe 10 campers are long term work campers with friendly and helpful people. Staff is great. Bathhouse and laundry are aged but spotless. In 27 days of camping, this was, by far, the best shower. No restrictors, timers, temp governors. Just powerful water hot enough to peel shrimp or cold enough to chill them - as you like it. There is, literally, room for two in the showers with a shower head on either end. This campground is a campground, not trying to be a resort or squeeze another nickel with another fee. Since camp was built the highway expanded adding noise from the highway, which is in sight. From 10: - nothing. They do not claim a thing they do not do well. The park welcomes families but does not have a pool or playground so I did not mark it family friendly, though it is. - Frank Rader

As others have said previously, campground is off the interstate a ways, then approximately 1.5 miles down a progressively narrowing farm road. It gets so that you think you must have missed the place as signage is nearly nonexistent. But once you do find the place you're turning off the road into basically their driveway. There's the house and several garage/outbuildings with all sorts of stuff and equipment scattered around. It was a mess. Very strange for a campground. Owner and wife both came out and she escorted us to our spot. Site wasn't numbered that I could see but it was a wonderful, grass pull-thru that was actually double long. Perfectly level, with W/E and sewer - for $30! That made up for the strange setting and all of the run-down permanent trailers that were scattered around. Owner left and drove back with a small receipt for me to sign and that was it for paperwork. I don't know what anyone would do here for more than a single night, but maybe there are things in the area. The owners were very nice and friendly, the rate was great for the one night we were passing through, but I can't say we would return here again. - R.T.

Park is tucked back in the hills about 10 miles off the interstate. Starts out easy to get to, then quickly, the roads become rougher and more narrow. Once in the park, owner met us and showed us to our site. Internal roads are slightly narrow, but navigable. Some low tree limbs prevented us from extending either of our awnings. Full hookups were available. We only used electric, as we were only there 1 night. It's a little out of the way for a 1 night stay, but there didn't seem to be anything else closer to the interstate. Park was stone/packed dirt throughout. Site was super long, as it was designed for 2 long coaches, one behind the other (if you were traveling with another couple). Park is also slightly "hilly". Owner very friendly, and accommodating. Looked like there were some folks that lived there permanently, or used park as vacation/weekend "get-away". Would consider this a "stop-over" instead of a "destination" park. - usamacdonald2

The campground is located off a very rough blacktop road badly in need of repair. The road is narrow with low overhanging tree branches that must be dodged. The campground itself was okay but the photos online were much more attractive than the actual site. The office building area was littered with old construction equipment with items scattered all over the place. The owners had barking dogs that barked every time someone passed nearby. The only good/bad news is there was plenty of downed limbs for firewood that should have been cleaned up. It was obvious the owners weren't concerned about having a neat and organized campground. I would avoid this campground in the future. - joebud

We were driving and started getting tired. We happened to see a camping sign along the interstate and pulled off. I quickly jumped on the internet to see if there were reviews. When we arrived it was small and like the only review I could find. I didn't have to use the facilities because I had my own. The people were friendly and it was great for the night! I would stay there again in passing. - ATerry

This is a very small campground that has been overrun recently by construction workers and their families. That leaves very few spaces for the traveling public. There are 2 "big rig" sites - but beware, the access road is very narrow with a big turn at the bottom. The sites are all very close together. The owners are very nice and try to do what they can to help - but space is very limited. - Cmactraveler

This little campground is West Virginia capitalism at work. Since I am from West Virginia, I am not picking on us "hillbilles." A family has converted some bottom land into a small campground. It has a small rest room and shower facilities. The spaces are all gravel and 30 Amp. Half have sewer connections, but they also have a dump station. This campground is not fancy and getting to it can be a little intimidating to those who do not like "country roads." All that being said, this is an adequate stop off since it is right off I-79. The choices along this stretch of the Interstate are Wal-Mart or here. At least here you have connections. So you have been warned, but this may be the only port in the storm. It is clean and safe. - cheldreth

This is part of the Nemacolin Resort. The rate was actually $150.00 per night, I kid you not! Beautiful grounds and sites abound. World class golf, spas, restaurants, concierge service, free transports within the resort. They even hook you up to the utilities. No bathrooms are available however. A special place for a special weekend. It was our anniversary and we'll go back next year. Not the kind of cost we'd do every weekend but it's perfect for a special occasion. Miniature golf, a zoo, paint ball, horse riding, off road driving, paddle boats and more are offered. The place is huge. - Old Guys Rule

This was my 1st campground that we ever stayed at or ever went camping at. The end of my 1st night we fell in love camping and since have camped in 15 other locations. With just 26 spots, big pool and miles of trails we love this place we will be back 3 times in 2019 as my family will also be there a few times as well. Great place to go and relax. There are over 1000 permanent or seasonal RV sites here. - Jeff Yelinek

Big Bear Lake Camplands is 3 miles down a windy, pot hole ridden road off I-68. Towards the entrance to the park you must go through a narrow road. At the guard gate, pray you don't meet "Broomhilda" the security guard (no joking West Virginia at her finest. The woman is a borderline simpleton. Once you check-in, your drive is fairly short to the campground. The campground has a few leveled, pull through, gravel sites for large motor coaches, a dozen or so (pull through) sites for larger fifth wheels and travel trailers and a dozen more back-in sites for smaller pop-ups, travel trailers, and tents as well as a few cabins. The entire site is gravel and there is a bath house (more closely resembling an outhouse). The bath house is not all too clean. The sites have NO wireless, NO cable, No laundry facilities, and barely any cell phone coverage. You'd need to stand on one foot with your left arm extended to get even a little signal. The entire area is also infested with poison oak and spiders so be extra careful where you walk. All day long you have the locals that live in trailers all over the park full time driving through the campground either investigating everyone's site or using the campground as a shortcut or using the bath house. On the weekend, the entire place is infested with drunk teenagers and adults driving golf carts and motor vehicles with beer in hand. Remember this is the wilds of West Virginia. Security is really scare and they only seem to bother checking to make sure no one overstays their visit. There is a lovely lake nearby and numerous trails for riding bikes or hiking. There is also a country store nearby. But, for what you pay, this place is a huge rip-off! It is out in the middle of nowhere. Bruceton Mills is actually 10 miles away and doesn't have a whole to offer either. Seriously, this place should be a lot less expensive for what it offers and what you have to deal with. Still, the location is pretty and the campground is fairly quiet during the weekday. Would not return to this site though. - LeoRunner

It had rained for days before we arrived, so the campground was quite muddy. The rain continued on and off for most of our stay - which is not the fault of the campground. They put straw down on the super muddy spots. Check in was quick and easy. It was October, so most of the campers were decorating for the trick-or-treaters on Saturday night. We bought candy and shared the fun. Our campsite was level and easy to enter and exit. Utilities were convenient. The firewood we bought was damp and hard to light. At the time we were there, a bridge on the road to the campground was "out", and they gave us directions for how to go on other roads to get to them. Might be a good idea to verify that the bridge has been rebuilt and that your gps directions will work. - ShoreXplorers

Stayed 2 nights while visiting "Falling Waters". Park had some sites winterized & we had a good choice of sites. Roads to campground are quite hilly as is this whole area of Pa. Sites are very close so I wouldn't return in busy season. Staff is very helpful & friendly. - Penfield Pathfinder

We stayed for 5 nights. We paid $39 per night using the Fall pricing schedule. Reservation process was easy. Check-in was fast and efficient. Staff is friendly and helpful. We were given two sites together (only charged for one) so we had a nice, long pull through. There is plenty of room before the entrance gate to pull to the side so you're not blocking it while checking in. Approach slowly so you can plan accordingly. We chose to unhook & hook up our toad outside the gate. All hook-ups worked well. Verizon cell and Verizon mifi were so-so. DirecTV signal was fine. The campground is clean and nights are blissfully quiet - no road noise and no trains. Interior turns are a bit tight but certainly do-able with a big rig. We didn't use it but there is a large pool and deck area which looked very clean. There are many long-term tenants but everyone was friendly and respectful. We enjoyed our time at Benner's Meadow Run. If we returned to the area, we would be happy to stay here again. NOTE - GPS overall is tricky in this entire area so prepare carefully. Once you're out and about, you might not get cell reception so have a back-up plan/map ready. Apple maps and Google maps both had quirks. Not normally the case but this time the Jeep nav system was the most accurate. - GottaGoNow
