Clean and well organized campground conveniently located adjacent the Highway 51. All site are leveled (concrete pads), with electric, water and sewer. The concrete pads are large enough for both an RV and a toad vehicle to park on the side. A metal picnic table at each site and fire pit. Laundry facilities are newer with 6 washers and dryers. The rec room has a large, flat screen TV, Nintendo WII, two treadmills, stationary bike and elliptical machine. The office carries some store items and gifts. Wireless throughout the park, although rather weak the farther back you are from the office. The pool was closed when we were there for the season (no hot tub). There are two playgrounds and grassy areas throughout. There is even a rather new storage center next door. Now some minor negatives. The road noise from HWY 51, the freeway nearby, and the FED EX planes can be quite loud at times. The construction of a new extension to the park was a bit of a nuisance as well. Management needs to do a better job of enforcing rules at this park, too. Quite a few long term residence who are a little too comfortable. All-in-all, this is a good park though.

Beautiful entryway into the park. The office staff is a bit timid. The campground can be too busy on the weekends and dead on the week days. Nice pool, gameroom, store, miniature golf, and shower rooms. WiFi is NOT free. Makeshift camp fire rings, unless you're fortunate to be in the new supersite area. Close to the Virginia Beach boardwalk, aquarium and shops. Rather far drive from the freeway, but an easy drive.

Easy access to this campground. The campground itself is very clean, the big rig area is easy pull though. The sites are a little cramped, but are located next to the pool, playground, laundry facilities, and bath house. The road noise is a little loud at times, but this is a crowded area of Maryland. The staff are very polite and helpful. The wireless and TV reception are fabulous. There are numerous walking trails behind the campground and loads of shopping nearby. Plus you cannot beat its central location to Baltimore, Washington DC, and Annapolis. Yes, it is a rather pricey campground, but worth it.

This campground is not as bad as the other reviewers make it out to be. The roads are quite passable for my 41' motor coach. Although trees are everywhere, they are maintained and the branches more then high enough for the tallest motor coach to avoid. Yes, wireless is only available at the rec room, but as far as campgrounds in this particular area go (most are horrific), this place is quite reasonably priced and access is not that difficult to navigate. The pull through site are reasonably level.

Overall a pleasant park. Large water park at the entrance with the RV park above. The RV park isn't that large with the sites across from each other. All gravel and semi leveled (our front drivers side wheel is about 4" off the ground). There is a small lake adjacent to the sites with a small fountain. Very little tree coverage...look to be mostly young trees. The laundry faculties (2 washers and 2 dryers) are clean and work fine. The bathhouse is large and clean with a couple of showers and a few toilets for both sexes. The wireless connection is excellent and cable is good. The downside, the pool is packed 7 days a week, the picnic area on the day we arrived had an obnoxiously loud party going on so you could hear hip-hop blaring throughout the park with management doing nothing about it. Also, this place seems mostly interested in catering only to those with children. We wanted to extend our stay but were told they were booked with "families" and are trying to keep the "resort" open for the locals with "children". I did notice a lot of travelers staying only one night. Amenities like grocery stores and gas stations are a 2 mile drive away in Bentleyville. We wont be staying here again as it is a bit out of the way from anything and the owners are a bit discriminating against anyone that doesn't have children.

Large park shaded throughout by amazing "Big" oaks. The office area has a nice little garden. The bathhouse consist of one shower and one toilet each for men and women. The park is full of short term workers. We had to park our coach on the side of the office is was so full. The wireless and cable were good and the staff is very friendly. the laundry facilities are adequate. The capitol is just down the road and all the amenities such as stores, fuel, etc. Not a bad park, just very crowded!

If you enjoy a park full of smoke, sites that aren't leveled, lots and lot of children running around and snooty teenagers this is the place for you. If you have a large motorhome...STAY AWAY from this place! The sites are tight, the roads narrow and gravel throughout. The pool looked mucks but the little pond was lovely. The whole time we were here we could here everyone around us praising Jim Crow Laws, quoting the bible, and getting drunk. We stayed for 13 miserably long hours and left. The town nearby is quaint and have a couple of very nice resorts..one with an RV site that is on the rather expensive side but worth it!

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.
