We stayed at Swallow Falls over Labor Day weekend. This was our first trip to the area. We absolutely loved the campground and the surrounding park. We stayed in site 42 with full hook ups. The site has many trees on three sides. We could barely see the campers in 42C and 41 was behind us so we didn't see them. The bath house is right behind the site though so there were people around there all the time - though it was not at all bothersome. The site was easy to back in to though the access road is quite narrow. Our neighbors in 42C had a little bit of difficulty but got their camper backed in. We were with our two beagles. We could not take them on the trail to the falls on the campground side of the river. We were able to go to a trail on the opposite side which was still very nice. I suspect the campground side had a better view of Muddy Creek Falls though. We were permitted to take the dogs on the five mile trail and did about half of that. We saw very few other people on the hike and had the pleasure of watching five deer about 20 yards in front of us until the dogs barked. The day use area was quite busy on Sunday. We had left the park and had to wait in line for quite awhile to get back in. There were many families at the campground but everyone was very respectful of quiet hours. We will absolutely stay here again! - BeagleDad

For location and beauty of the park, this CG is a ten; however, the filth in the bathhouses and the lack of enforcement of the quiet hours force me to downgrade our rating. We originally intended to use our pop-up, but since we couldn't get one of the three w/e sites, we decided to use our tent instead. We had site 60 in the Garrett Loop, which turned out to be a "handicap" site (accessible) and right beside a (noisy) cabin site and the bathhouse. This site was within short walking distance to a playground and a bit of a walk to the camp store and the hike to the falls (the beautiful main interest in the park). There was a visible presence to enforce the strict no-alcohol rule in the afternoon, but no one was around to tell our noisy neighbors at midnight to cut off the noise, so we had to -- Awkward! But the short hike to Muddy Creek Falls and the towering hemlocks made it all worthwhile. The CG part is completely shaded mostly by hardwoods, not the beautiful pines. We will return for sure and try next time to get one of the w/e sites. - Beth

The park has limited (3) full hook-ups, and one of them is usually a Camp Host. I guess for convenience and cost, the full hook-up sites are the closest to the bathhouse. Good sites, park very clean and the area is relaxing. The Falls is a fairly short walk from the CG. We have camped there last year and once this year, but plan on going back again later in the year. - DaGrinch

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

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

Small campground, and mostly seasonal, but probably the best choice for the area with a big rig. Sites are not on the large side but will work with a little effort, they let us sit deep in our site which did partially block another site but here early in the week and not crowded. Staff nice and very friendly but would return when the sunflowers bloom for the wife to see. - DBLR

Park is in great setting in valley that overlooks lake. Mostly for seasonal RVs but has separate section with 12 sites for overnight/short term RVs. Very well maintained and owners are super people. We were in need of repairs and owners went well above the call of duty to help us finds parts and repair our rig. - jctbob55

Staff here is wonderful, and the setting is beautiful. The sites are private and large, but the actual usable space is rather small when you have a travel trailer. I guess these are fairly old sites. Very good discovery center and great places to explore in nearby towns. The only reason I would not give this park a higher rating is that the shower house is really in need of a good cleaning. The walls and the floors need regular power washing. - sheegs

We just returned from a camping trip over Memorial Day Weekend 2016. The location of the park is very good - close to the lake with a sandy beach. The problem with the park is for some reason a ton of trees have been cut down and are laying everywhere. It looks like a state of destruction as you are camping with piles of downed trees and branches everywhere. We were in John Garrett loop. It gave us a very bad feeling like we were survivors after a catastrophic event. The lower Meshach Browning loop was also not great because the campsites were very, very close together. We cancelled a later reservation that we had because of these problems. - Casey10

Quiet, surrounded by beautiful nature. Very economically priced. Staff was friendly. Down side - electric hookups are only on limited number of sites. Lots of tents. Bathrooms are clean but dark. Wish there were a dish washing stations at the bathrooms. State park beach is nice size and not overly crowded. Lots of hiking trails. Campfire rings and attached grills at every site. We enjoyed our week long stay despite losing power for several days because of a bad storm. Surrounding area full of things to do and see. - Beth B

We wanted to stay somewhere that was close to a couple of attractions we wanted to visit. A google maps search revealed Bumble Bee. What a gem!! When we arrived, one of the staff was there to guide us to our spot and offer any assistance with set up. The campground was beautiful. Quiet, wooded and immaculately kept. Also, the little details set this campground apart, such as landscapes between each site. - Road Kandy

This campground is a gem hidden in the woods. Where else does the owner meet you at the entrance and give you the choice of several sites, shady back-ins or sunny pull-throughs? Where else does the owner help you back in and offer his assistance connecting to the utilities? Where else does the owner tell you to stop at the office after you are settled in and then take care of the paperwork? All here at Bumble Bee. I also rate CG's by the "sleepability" and this one gets a 10 in that category. No road noise, no Interstates, no trains, no airplanes taking off and landing at night...just peace and quiet. There is a county airport just down the road, but in the time we were here I only heard one plane flying overhead. We were not close enough to hear the take-off's and landings, if there were any. Although I didn't use the rest rooms or showers, I did check them out and they were immaculate. They were clean, they were bright, and they smelled fresh. And the 10 or so seasonal rigs that were here were all clean and well-taken care of; none of those junky campers that hadn't been washed or used in years. Plus, no junk lying around, no abandoned vehicles, and no trash. Every site in the CG was clean and manicured. The owner was going to cut the grass on our first day here, but he held off because he didn't want to disturb us. Thank you! I do have to admit that we were here mid-week so it may be busier on the weekends, but that's one of the perks of being retired. This is not a resort, so don't look for a pool, or a dog park, or a children's playground, or a fully stocked camping store, or a restaurant. But if you want a nice, quiet, well-taken care of campground, this is the place to go. Shhhh! Don't tell anyone! Let's keep this our little secret. - Love To Travel 2

My wife and I stayed at Bumble Bee Campground while at Deep Creek Lake. The camp is about 10 minutes away from the lake. Very clean and quiet (besides the neighbors driving there trucks and 4-wheelers up and down the road they share). The owners are very nice and helpful. The sites were a little small for trailer and truck, but the wildlife was great... birds, chipmunks, deer & turkeys. It is a very small campground, but very nice. Had no problems backing in with a 33' trailer. They do sell firewood, but not many supplies in the camp store. We stayed for 4 nights and had a great time. We will stay here again the next time we go to Deep Creek! - M D Hirsch

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

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

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

We read some negative reviews on the owners and were concerned. I can't speak of the wife, but the husband was over the top nice and extremely helpful. He gave us a very nice spacious back-in site rather than the smaller pull-thru b/c he knew we would be there for 3 days. He helped my husband move the tow dolly and was very responsive when there was a problem with the 50 amp. Quiet park and nice people. Tight roads for the large RVs, but definitely manageable. The restrooms are in serious need of updating, but they were clean. We did not have to use them as our site had full hook-ups. We would recommend this campground. - Deb and Chris
