Main bath house at entrance has showers and toilets with plumbing. "Bathrooms" at other locations are "vault toilets" although I will say they were the cleanest and best smelling I have ever seen. Overall park and amenities kept very clean. Camp hosts check you in. Not always there (understandable), very friendly and helpful. Basically a heavily wooded area. Good spacing/privacy between sites. Large park-like area with access to river part of recreation area, short drive in the car. Good swimming access/beach. No space for kids to play among campsites, but lots of space at nearby park. We camped at Stuart Recreation Area - Monongahela National Forest in a Tent Trailer.

Town of Elkins decent sized with groceries and restaurants only about 5 minutes away. Enjoyed the Allegheny Highlands Trail (converted rail trail) nearby. There is parking access from Elkins.

Beautiful, wooded campground. We had some trouble finding it once we got up the mountain so be sure to scout using Google satellite view. We found the turns a bit tight in our 38 foot motorhome and the first site we got was so unlevel that we had to move. After that, no issues. We camped at Stuart Recreation Area - Monongahela National Forest in a Motorhome.

Make sure you drive even further up the mountain and go to the Bickle Knob Observation Tower! Don't miss it.

Be sure an access this campground from Hwy. 33 CR 55 from Elkins and NOT from the north using CR9 and CR6.

This is an very nice campground with great hosts. Some sites are not level. I (in a 37' coach with tow), recommend site 4 or 12. I would give this place a 10 if more sites were level and there were ants on site 7. We camped at Stuart Recreation Area - Monongahela National Forest in a Motorhome.

The hosts here are very good. Everything is clean. Very natural surroundings with spacious sites. There isn't much grass around but the gravel placed in sites helps control the mud possibility. No water at sites but readily available throughout campground. As close as it gets to roughing it with electric hookup on a paved pad. Not many sites so it can be difficult to obtain one. We camped at Stuart Recreation Area - Monongahela National Forest in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

Our second time to camp here in our small fifth wheel. It is very, quiet, shady and conveniently located outside Elkins. We were here to bicycle the Allegheny Highlands Trail. Has electric hook-ups and several water spigots. Bathhouse is spotlessly clean. Only drawback is the that it has MANY vented windows which do not close and during cool season it is COLD in there, but the water is warm. We would camp here again. Be aware the sign for the sharp left turn says Stuart Bickle Knob (should say Stuart AND Bickle Knob) so don't miss your turn as it is hard to make a turnaround. We camped at Stuart Recreation Area - Monongahela National Forest in a Fifth Wheel.
