This campground has interior roads that are gravel, windy and sometimes narrow. The sites we saw were narrow and some were on an incline. The site they assigned us was not suitable for our 39 ft motorhome and we asked to be reassigned. They agreed with no problem and gave us another site but when we went to park there, it was already occupied. In turn, we asked for a full refund and they did give us the refund. We prefer to have nice paved interior roads, sites that are not too close together, and level sites. This campground does not have any of those things. One complaint we have is that most campgrounds employ young people who do not know much about the campgrounds or the difference between a trailer, fifth wheel, or Motorhome. Some don't even know the difference between 30 and 50 amps. All of these things are very important to know so they can correctly assign sites to specific types of RV's. I don't blame the young people, I blame the management for not properly training their staff. We feel we don't ask for much, just a comfortable site that is appropriate for the RV we have. Anyone out there agree with us??

Bulltown Campground has 204 sites: 196 with electrical hook-ups. Restroom / shower facilities, playgrounds, dump-stations, fresh water fill-up stations, an interpretive shelter that may be reserved by campers for special occasions, and a boat launch ramp are located within the campground. The campsites vary from waterfront to wood lot. A beautiful campground in the hills of West Virginia. Great sites that are roomy and shaded. If you want to get away and relax, this is a place to consider. No cell phone reception so that can be a good thing for some. Interior roads are paved as well as handicap areas. Other sites are gravel with lawn, picnic table, and fire rig. Park Attendants do canvas the area a few times a day and are very helpful and friendly. Dump station at entrance of park that is big and very convenient. Also water fountains with hose bibs are located throughout the campground to use if low on water. One of the nicest parks we have visited in West Virginia. This campground is just about perfect! If it had full hook ups we'd give it a 10.

This is a very nice park that has 300 level sites and a couple of fishing lakes. Interior roads were gravel. We camped in the 5A section which was a wide open grassy field with very wide sites. This section was on a hill top and the lakes were at the bottom of the hill. If walking to lakes be prepared for a trek up hill back to your campsite. Several permanent sites and most people had golf carts to get around. Only 30 amp service available and no sewage but they do have a dump station. No reservations required. A great place to get away and relax. Very people friendly park. We will return for another visit.

This campground is in a beautiful country setting. Dirt/gravel roads, grass sites. A lot of bugs in the early evening. We were in the back of the campground site C-3. It was very muddy due to recent rain and it being the low part of the campground. Our site was missing it's fire ring. Pros of CG are that it is an easy in and easy out campground with nice open entry road. Lots of trees throughout and it appeared to have lots to do; miniature golf, pool, etc. This is a good stop over campground and was just OK for us.

This is the cleanest campground we have ever seen. Sites are grassy but interior roads are paved which is a plus. Some of the sites are not level; the ones closest to the beach seem the most level. Many permanent sites but all are well maintained. The only downfall to this campground are all the add ons. $5 extra for each of the following; kids, dogs, 50 amps. They do not allow large dogs like Great Danes, Pit Bulls, German Shepards, Rottweilers. This is a beautiful campground but for us it is just to pricey. All the extra's can really add up. Not worth the extra money. Probably would be OK in the off season.

This is a new campground and they are still in the process of adding additional sites. There is a gated entrance, large, level grass sites, wide paved interior roads, and very friendly owners. The recreation area is near the river and is beautiful. Large pool, playground, and pier. The only drawback is there are a lot of permanent sites. Campground is only about 10 minutes from the beaches of Emerald Isle and Atlantic Beach so there is plenty to do in the area. We have already booked a site for June and think it will be beautiful in the summer. This is how a campground should be..large sites, paved roads, and friendly people.

This campground was just OK for us. As we were going to our site, our motorhome met up with some low hanging tree branches..not a good thing for us and not something you want to deal with on your first visit. No damage to our motorhome but it was of concern to us. The sites were not very level for us, roads were gravel and sites were gravel/dirt. Site were close together also. We stayed here as a stop over going to North Carolina. Would not want to stay here any longer than one night.

We went to this park thinking it was big rig friendly. Getting to the park is a job in itself. The road directly to the park is narrow with sharp curves. If you are driving a large motorhome or fifth wheel please be careful! The road is not wide enough for two large vehicles to pass one another. The park is at the bottom of a hill and near the river but the sites are not large enough for a large motorhome. We have a 40ft motorhome and they gave us the "Super Site" (13 I think) which is a pull in by the river. If you use this and have slides, there are trees in the way of the slideouts so that is a problem. The other sites didn't look much better. Spaced close together and not very long. When we arrived at the park, we were assigned the "Super Site" but when we pulled in to set up, we weren't happy and decided not to stay. This is not a Big Rig Friendly Campground in our minds. This is a very small Campground that would be fine for tents, small popups, or campers. As we were leaving the campground, we had to ascend the winding curvy road and as we reached the curve in the road a car was coming towards us. A standoff ensued..the road was so narrow that we could not pass one another. Someone had to back up and let the other pass; remember we are in a 40ft motorhome on a narrow curvy hill...Luck was on our side as the car opted to back up and let us continue through. We were very disappointed in this campground and it is one that will be crossed off of our list. Don't know about anyone else, but we like to have roomy sites that are not crammed so close together that you can almost touch the other camper next to you. Also a level site is something we look for and you won't find any at this campground.

This is the best campground we have used. They have taken the time and effort to design this campground for comfort and recreation. The sites are paved, wide, long, and level. The roads are paved and the lake is beautiful. We had a lake side site which was out of this world. There was a full moon rising above the lake and trees the first two evenings we were there and it was breathtaking. If you are looking for a special place to enjoy the Myrtle Beach area, please consider this campground, you will not be sorry you did. There are nature trails, walking path around the lake, boat and bike rentals, pool, and playground area. The only regret we have is that it is too far away from our home in PA to be able to take advantage of it more often but we will return when time allows us to do so.

We used this park as an overnight stay while traveling to South Carolina. The management was very helpful and friendly but the campground itself is not big rig friendly. We have a 40 ft motorhome and need a large enough space to feel comfortable setting up the rig. These sites are too small and uneven for a big rig. The roads are narrow plus the sites are narrow and short so just be careful choosing a site. We are finding out that many reviews may be excellent for trailers or smaller motorhomes but not big rig friendly. Just use common sense when choosing a campground and always consider what type of RV you are using.

If you like the outdoors and peaceful setting this is the place to go. Situated in the mountains of West Virginia, this park is affiliated with Canaan Valley Resort and Conference Center. The ski slopes are nearby along with the lodge. The campsites are situated within 3 beautiful tree filled circles with full hook-ups, picnic table, and fire ring. If you have a larger Motorhome or Fifth Wheel, just be careful when setting up. Some of the sites are not very level and leveling up could become a problem if you aren't careful. There was an Airstream Trailer that came in to a site near us and could not level up, so they did leave the park. Park staff is very helpful so I suggest you discuss the size of your unit with them and have them help you choose a site suitable for your unit. Sites 10 thru 34 are reserveable sites while the others are first come first serve. They have a miniature golf course, play area for children, nature trails, and of course the use of the Resort. The only negative feedback we have about this park is that is does not have any lights along the paths or in the site areas; it's very dark in the evenings. Otherwise, this park is a keeper in our log book...will definitely return.

This park has more sites with seasonal people than the regular vacationer. The sites were close together and roads were narrow and gravel. They do allow horses but there were piles of horse waste on the roads that were not cleaned up. We were placed in the back of the campground which resembled a parking lot with a horse barn closeby and a few trailers that were parked there for storage. The area we were in was dirty and not taken care of. The pull through sites were very narrow and some were on a slight hill which would be hard to level a large motorhome. Our advice if you have a large motorhome (anything over 34 foot) would be to avoid this park. Also no sewage and the dump station hose was broken so you could not use it. We were told to go into an empty site the day of our departure and just use that sewage system there which would have been rather inconvenient for us. This is one park that we do not intent to return to for a visit.

This park is very nice and clean but not Big Rig Friendly even though staff will tell you that it is Big Rig Friendly. We have a 40 foot motorhome and could not level it up on the spot they assigned us nor could we level it up at any other site there. Just a word of caution for those of you with Big Rigs...be careful and do not attempt to set up there if you don't feel comfortable. We did not stay there and were given our money back but not without the staff urging us to try another site which we refused to do. Roads were gravel and winding and narrow..too much for a Big Rig.

This park is new, just opened in May and the owners are exceptionally cordial and friendly. They go above and beyond the duty of campground owners; offering services that are exceptional. They campground is located in the small Virginia town of Fries along the river. There are walking and bike trails along the river for recreation and they owners have a cute building which can be used to socialize with them and other campers. Complete with rocking chairs on the porch to beautiful framed prints and homemade jams for sale. If you need to just get away from it all and relax, this is the place to go. Beautiful scenery and the Blue Ridge Parkway very close by. You can't get any better than this!!

We found this campground to be very nice and people friendly. We also rented a pontoon from them and spent a couple of days on Summersville Lake which was very enjoyable. The sites were nice but we did have a small problem leveling our big rig. The level sites that were available did not have sewage which was something we did not want to do without. The dump station is not in the campground but at the Marina which could be somewhat inconvenient. All in all, the owners are very friendly and helpful. Nice place to use as a base if you are planning on taking advantage of the beautiful Summersville Lake.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. Sites are level and roomy and the lake is very nice. We rented a pontoon and enjoyed the lake during one of our stays. Some of the sites are lake front with beautiful views. Also some tent sites are on the lake with wooden platforms. It is exceptionally clean with staff picking up trash daily. Also there are a lot of skunks and deer roaming the grounds that appear to be very used to human company. There is a lodge across the lake with a restaurant and also a beautiful golf course. The marina is within walking distance of the campground. A beautiful place to enjoy the outdoors and relax.

This campground is actually in Pennsylvania along the Maryland-Pennsylvania border. Out in the country which is very beautiful and serene. The sites were roomy and many had trees for shade. Some seasonal sites but they were located in separate area. Pool looked clean and well-kept; pond for fishing was nice. There is a small store, game room and play area for children. People were very friendly although there was a group of folks that didn't abide by the quiet time rules..somewhat noisy for after hours. But,if you want to get away for a few days to relax; this is a place to consider. We would go back to this campground.

This campground is not big rig friendly. We arrived in a 39 foot motorhome and was assigned a site that was not suitable for our rig. The site was uneven and small and the hook ups were in the back of the rig, not on the side as usually placed at other campgrounds. We tried to level our rig but damaged the levelers in the process. The roads were narrow and low hanging tree branches made for a very stressful drive to the site. After the failed attempt to level up, we left the campground and headed home. Fortunately, we live close by. The management was informed about our experience and departure and we were told that no refund would be made and that big rigs go in and out of there everyday; although we didn't see any big rigs or big fifth wheels. Take heed and use caution if you plan to camp at this campground. We will not be returning..

We found this campground to be very clean but also with very small sites. We have a 35" motorhome and the site we used was rather narrow. It is a nice campground if you have things to see and do in the Zanesville area but if you have no transportation, there isn't much to do at the campground itself. There is a small play area for the children, a small game room with a pool table and a few games, short walking trail, and pavilion with several picnic tables. We found the sites to be too close together and not much room to move around freely.

We found this campground to be very clean, quiet, and relaxing. It is a beautiful setting in the mountains of West Virginia with very friendly and helpful owners who live on the premises. There is a hiking trail on the property, streams running through the grounds, a small pond for fishing, a pavilion with picnic tables, and a small play area for the children. The pool was clean but it is an oval above the ground pool. Good for young children only. The sites are grass and have some trees for shade. Many campers had boats and took them to Stonewall Jackson Lake for the day. The only negative remark we have regarding this campground is that the road to it is very narrow and windy so one must be very careful driving. We will return to this campground for another relaxing and enjoyable stay.
