From exit 79, on I-79 follow signs (Rt 5)to Burnsville Dam & Riffle Run Campground (COE). Looked nice to us when we drove thru, only about 3 miles from the exit. http://www.lrh.usace.army.mil/projects/lakes/bus/
At exit 67 on I-79 is the very convenient Flatwoods RV park which gets great reviews (click on 'display older reviews'). http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions...Flatwoods.html
Unfortunately, if you click on the park's website, you'll see it has become a KOA, with the rates now $40+/nite.(guess they gotta recover that $25K franchise fee, plus the 10% they have to kickback to KOA for each camping fee)
At the same exit 67, about a slow 11 mile/20 minute drive off I-79, is the Bulltown Campground (COE) on the opposite end of Burnsville Lake. Great place, we stayed there in 39 ft MH last Oct. It's usually self pay/ no reservations this time of year.
Battle Run, near Summersville, does not get great reviews, but I think it might be a good stop-over if you don't have pets and you avoid the weekend locals. It is a beautiful lake, and like all COE parks, are mostly waterfront sites, even has some pull-thrus. See: phttp://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/West_Virginia/Summersville.html
Ray's Campground http://www.rayscampground.com/
sounds like it might make a suitable overnighter (with a yummy sounding breakfast deal to boot), being less than 5 miles off US 19 at Hico, WV. It is right near the Canyon Rim Visitors Center on US19. Spend an hour to see that, quite spectacular. Ray's only charges $7/person/night, so sounds economical, but I would ask about the ease of getting a large class A rig in there. Those WV roads are often very narrow, and usually straight up rock on one side and straight down nothing on the other. It's not called 'The Mountain State' for no reason, but sure has gorgeous views.
Just about 2 miles south of Ray's is Rifrafters. Sounds nice and photos look good. http://www.rifrafters.com/
If you can make it to I-77, Camp Creek State Park is only 2 miles from exit 20, nice place (we've been there), level sites, some pull thru, complete with babbling brook, about $24/nite. http://www.campcreekstatepark.com/camping.html
Something along this area should suit your fancy. You wouldn't regret spending a day or two or more in the area, if you can spare the time.
